Greetings From Bhavnagar University's Journal Dentistry...
As we come out with our fourth issue. Together, we welcome the ban on gutka,which has been recently reinforced in more than 10 states across India. 
According to release by world tobacco atlas and lancet,1.2 lakh cases of oral cancer alone are detected in India, out of this 80% are related to the use of tobacco. 
The alarming statistics are that 10-13 of three are children in the age group of 10-15 years,bringing India as the worlds highest oral cancer affected country.
 We see this ban,as an effort of public health experts,volunteer groups and judiciary, but the striking point of this drastic measure is the scientific evidence,its acceptance and awareness that has translated scientific knowledge into public policy.
 With advanced methods of oral cancer diagnosis and analysis we have been able to generate more scientific evidence in this field. The scientific advances and deductions contributed by various dental surgeons have further stepped up this cause for oral cancer.
In all "It needs more than a ban"
A holistic and comprehensive approach in tackling oral cancer, which, can further come from dental educationists and educational institutes who can play a larger role to address the issue by 
(a) Providing further scientific evidences related to all aspects of oral cancer and tobacco related products.
(b) Organizing public awareness programs at institutional level and also in co-ordination with local NGO's.
(c) Arranging free oral cancer diagnostic camps.
This would be further gear us up to deal with the challenge of tobacco abuse. As dental fraternity we look at this ban as a welcome step and join hands to contribute the cause in our own way in the interest of society.
