Yes sir, all this are equally harmful. They all contain various flavoring agents which are cheap and low food grade like magnesium carbonate and gambier. As such bettle nut itself is carcinogenic. So stop this things as soon as possible. If you want mouth freshner, take sauf.

Hi, the only difference between gutkha & panmasala is that pan masala does not contain tobacco. Rest all ingredients are same eg areca nut, slaked lime, flavouring agents etc. Bad effects of both just the same. Please avoid at all costs.
