Chewing tobacco: Not a safe product

“You can call chewing tobacco by whatever name you want – smokeless tobacco, spit tobacco, chew, snuff, pinch or dip – but don’t call it harmless. Whether you use chewing tobacco or other types of smokeless tobacco because you like it or because you think smokeless is a safe way to use tobacco, be forewarned – chewing tobacco can cause serious health problems.”

“A further danger is that several species of Bacillus, as well as some Stapphylococccus epidermidis and Staphylococcus hominis strains can reduce nitrates to nitrites, which can potentially lead to formation of carcinogenic, tobacco-specific N’-nitrosamines within the tobacco products, said Foley.”
