Brief Answer: Tobacco is injurious to health Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX Welcome to Healthcare magic. Khaini is nothing but moist tobacco mixed in lime. The chewing of tobacco is dangerous because it is irritant for the oropharyngeal mucosa and leads to cancer of orodigestive tract in long run. In fact most common cancer in third world is in upper oropharyngeal region. You should get checked by a dentist, get the teeth and gums cleaned and discontinue the habit of khaini as soon as possible. The best time is right now. I hope you are a person of strong will power and will overcome this addiction and would live a comfortable life.
