However, this is not required, now that you have decided to quit gutkha.

These causes incurable ulcerative lesions in the oral cavity areas like lips, cheek, tongue, floor of the mouth, soft palate and hard palate. Further, the ill-effects are also transferred to the voice box, food pipe, and some parts of kidney.
