VIDEO: Betelnut cardiac concern

Chief of Emergency Medicine doctor Sam Yokopua, has warned that betelnut chewing can cause sudden cardiac death.

He revealed this recently after seeing a number of sudden deaths at the Port Moresby General Hospital Emergency Department, most with a history of chewing betelnut and suddenly collapsing.

While this may come as a shock to many, Dr Yokopua gives a medical explanation of this cause.
