"There was only one brewery and it bottled beer in quart bottles only, at about 14 percent." One particular slide showed some of the older local women exemplifying the affect of the betel nut on them after they reached 45, when they become "addicted" to the chewing of the nut which causes the loss of teeth and hair.
