Malay culture and tradition hold betel nut and leaves in high esteem. Traditionally, guests who visit a Malay house are presented with a tray of areca nuts and betel leaves, in much the same way as drinks are offered to guests in many cultures around the world. There is even a Malay proverb about the betel nut, “bagaikan pinang dibelah dua”, loosely translated like a betel nut cut in two, referring to the similarity of two persons such as twins or siblings, because the two halves of the cut betel nut are very similar to each other.

Habitual chewers of betel leaf and areca nut have a greatly increased risk of developing a range of serious diseases, including cancers of the mouth and esophagus
