This is where it comes from. “Betel nut has a long history in South and Southeast Asia and the Pacific Basin. In Guam and other Pacific islands, its use can be traced back as far as 2,000 years. A habit passed down through generations, chewing betel nut is a time-honored custom for 10–20 percent of the world’s population. Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that around 600 million people use some form of betel nut. It is one of the most popular psychoactive substances in the world, in fourth place after nicotine, alcohol, and caffeine. But while betel nut is an important cultural and social tradition in many countries, growing evidence points to serious health effects from regular use as it’s classified as a carcinogen by the WHO. Many studies have shown a convincing link between betel nut use and cancer of the mouth and esophagus. A study in the Journal of the American Dental Association reports that betel nut users are at a higher risk for oral submucous fibrosis. This incurable condition can cause stiffness in the mouth and eventually the loss of jaw movement.@kristinkremers @natgeocreative

0 tag and 1 profile in descriptionLuanda, Angola shot on assignment for @natgeo My truest love in photography is with people...it’s a much more nuanced dance. I don’t want to say it’s harder than other forms, but it comes with it’s own unique challenges...like how do you find yourself into the intimacy of a home without intruding? How do you tell a story without exploiting? Do you? Is that possible? How do you get close without crossing boundaries? What is ‘okay’ to show and what’s too much? There is an enigmatic quality to it all and the answers are never the same. There are masters of this form of storytelling, and I’m not one of them...but I look to them and their work constantly for guidance and inspiration.
