Pakistani tobacco chewing persists despite cancer warnings

Naswar is a mixture of dried tobacco leaves combined with lime, water and colouring agents, chewed by many in Pakistan's Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province.

Many users believe the substance is good for the teeth, despite warnings that it can cause gum cancer.
