Hello, We understand your concern towards your husband's health. Since you have told us that your husband chew tobacco, pan Masala, betel nuts. Well there some advantages and more of disadvantages. If he keeps in chewing them he is at risk of restriction of his mouth movement, he is prone to oral neoplasm and there is chance of failure if his taste buds too. He cam choose an alternative I've betel nuts such as chewing gums. Because hey are better option till now. Thank you
