Kava Culture

Kava Culture Half the population of Vanuatu drink Kava root, which is fondly dubbed as the root of happiness. But deaths throughout Europe linked with this traditional South Pacific drink led to a ban.
Kava is an intoxicating drink and is also used in traditional medicine. Yet fears over links to liver problems and death have led to bans in numerous countries. Dr. Lebot, a Kava expert, claims Kava is not addictive; 'I cannot understand how it could be toxic', insisting problems lie in the kava-based pill production. A local man explains 'Since we have Kava we have less problems. Before that drinking alcohol was a problem.'
