DANGERS OF SMOKELESS TOBACCO

Smokeless tobacco is not a safer alternative to smoking.
Chewing tobacco contains 28 carcinogens including tobacco-specific nitrosamines. Other cancer-causing substances include formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, crotonaldehyde, hydrazine, arsenic, nickel, cadmium, benzopyrene and polonium (which gives off radiation)
Smokeless tobacco is believed to contribute to cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure because the nicotine gets into the bloodstream through the lining of the mouth and/or the gastrointestinal tract. Nicotine causes the heart to beat faster and blood pressure to rise. Smokeless tobacco users increase their risk of cancers of the oral cavity, throat, larynx and esophagus.
There are 10 million users of smokeless tobacco in the U.S...3 million users are under the age of 21.
Nearly 600,000 females over age 12 in the U.S. use smokeless tobacco, ostensibly for a nicotine "buzz" or as an appetite suppressant.
Smokeless tobacco users absorb two to three times the amount of addictive nicotine as those who smoke cigarettes.
Dipping 8 to 10 times a day can bring as much nicotine into the body as smoking 30-40 cigarettes!

If this information does not apply to you, please feel free to pass it on to someone who could benefit from it.

Sincerely,
Dr. Dwight Landry and Dr. Wendy Maes
