purgative properties[edit]

The statement that the illex vomitoria leaves are not purgative.emetics is not supported by at least one of the sources (citation 3) listed, which states just the opposite. Given that this source is the one that is in reference to the biology of the plant, and the other is in reference to the native american customs, I'd ask that this statement be removed or backed up. I have always been taught as a naturalist that the leaves did have an emetic effect (along with the caffeine). If this is incorrect, it needs a source to state that, since the prevailing source disagrees.
