A betel nut merchant eats betel nut while wrapping the quid with lime on a leaf at the first Taiwan Betel Nut Culture Exhibition in Kaohsiung June 29, 2007. For centuries, hundreds of millions of people across Asia, from Pakistan to Palau, have chewed the spicy date-like fruit of the betel palm for a quick buzz. Then four years ago, a World Health Organisation study found that chewing betel nuts can cause oral cancer and that the rate of these malignant mouth tumours was highest in Asia where the betel nut is a widely used stimulant.
