Smokeless Tobacco: The Truth about Chew (07:26)

FREE PREVIEW

A common misconception is that smokeless tobacco, such as chew and snuff, is safer than smoking cigarettes. While smokeless tobacco is less connected to some of the health damage associated with cigarettes, it comes with different—but equally dangerous—health risks. The body absorbs higher levels of nicotine, the addictive chemical in tobacco, from smokeless tobacco products, making them potentially more addictive than cigarettes and even harder to quit. Smokeless tobacco can also play a role in a variety of cancers, including esophageal cancer, oral cancer, pancreatic cancer, and more. It also stains your teeth and gives you bad breath among other side effects that can hurt your health—or sink your social life. Think there's still a safe way to use tobacco and nicotine by avoiding cigarettes? Watch The Truth about Chew and think again.
