Draft guidance on helping patients give up smokeless tobacco products, such as Gutka, Pan Masala, Shupari, and Betel Quid, has been published by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence.

Such products are linked to cancer, tooth decay, heart attack and stroke, and antenatal problems.

Their use has been cited as a reason why South Asian women are nearly four times more likely than other women to develop oral cancer.

A consultation on the draft closes on 25 April.
