A BJP MP from Jharkhand has urged PM Modi to prohibit the use of betel nuts (supari) for human consumption, claiming it causes deadly diseases like cancer. However, he added that betel nuts can be allowed to be used for other purposes such as religious ceremonies. In a letter to the prime minister some time ago, Godda MP Nishikant Dubey listed out a number of harmful effects on human health resulting from consumption of betel nuts.
