Caption

Betel nuts (Arecha catechu). Two whole betel nuts placed on betel nut chips. Betel nuts are the source of a habit-forming drug used throughout the Indian sub-continent. The chips can be chewed on their own or eaten in a popular snack called 'paan'. In this case 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 a discolouration of the mouth and teeth and may cause oral cancer.
