    Calcium Hydroxide. I wonder how much that has to do with the health problems rather than just the nut itself. I know it’s used for a lot of foods items, but regularly chewing it must surely have effects on the mouth at the very least.

    I was referring to the calcium hydroxide rather than the nut itself. Regularly chewing even a weak base must have negative effects on the tissue of the mouth.

    We split the nut, pour the lime powder on it, add cigarette( optional), and finally the betel leaf. Close it up and chew.
