World No Tobacco Day 2020: Smokeless tobacco products contain more nicotine than cigarettes, increase risk of stroke
Smokeless tobacco is found in paan masala, gutkha, khaini, zarda and other such products.
Here’s a look at different types of paan, and what it is that you’re putting into your body when you consume it.
The Bihar government on Friday announced a ban on tobacco and its products to ward off its ill effects on citizens.
Paan and tobacco shops in Mumbai remained shut today in protest of the new ordinance passed by the Maharashtra Department of Food and Drugs in July. The ordinance placed a statewide ban on the sale of scented betel nut and tobacco.
The Maharashtra government had banned the sale of gutkha and paan masala twice before but it had been struck down by courts.
