WASHINGTON, Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Snuff and chewing tobacco are not safer because they don't burn and produce inhalable smoke like cigarettes, U.S. researchers said.

Study leader Irina Stepanov, a chemist with Masonic Cancer Center at University of Minnesota, said the study adds to existing evidence smokeless tobacco contains two dozen other carcinogens that cause oral and pancreatic cancers.

Are you aware of what board you are on? This is the "Health and Wellness" board, not the "Crappy living and denial" board. Crazy as it may seem, people may come here to discuss issues pertaining to health, and nutrition. More times than not you are going to see posters pointing out things that are healthy, and things that are not healthy. If this bothers you, then why in the hell are you here? What's the point? (That's rhetorical btw)

What's the point of getting all worked up about it? If someone thinks smokeless tobacco is dangerous, the solution is quite simple: Don't put it in your mouth.
