While the Minister for Health, Dr Neil Sharma is urging people to take responsibility for their health and change their attitudes towards healthier living, there are others around us promoting non-productive drinks like Kava and even thinking of having it bottled and sold to public service vehicle drivers (FS 8/7).
We all have heard of the numerous side effects from drinking large amounts of Kava like lack of appetite, drowsiness, fatigue, headache, red eyes, dry discoloured skin and it affects the liver and kidney. What would become of our roads and highways if PSV drivers were free to drink and drive under the influence of addictive Kava with thousands of commuters relying on daily public transport?
