Caption

Betel nuts (Arecha catechu). Pile of betel nuts on sale in a market in Bhutan. Betel nuts are the source of a habit-forming drug used throughout the Indian sub-continent. The betel nuts are boiled in lime, dried and wrapped in a betel leaf spread with a spicy or sweet paste. Tobacco may also be added. It has an intoxicating effect like alcohol. Habitual use causes discolouration of the mouth and teeth and may cause oral cancer.
