Spanish: Tabaco sin humo
By Jennifer Kenny
1 Smokeless tobacco is any tobacco that is not smoked. The term smokeless tobacco usually refers to chewing tobacco, dipping tobacco, and snuff. Snuff is a tobacco that users sniff or inhale up their nose. They may also hold it in their mouths. Chewing tobacco is a tobacco that users chew. Dipping tobacco is placed between the cheek and gums.
2 Smokeless tobacco contains nicotine, just like cigarettes do. The nicotine is absorbed into the blood. It is addictive. It causes the person to crave more, just as a person would crave another cigarette. Some people think using smokeless tobacco is safer than smoking cigarettes. Ironically, though, more nicotine gets into your body using smokeless tobacco than smoking cigarettes. Besides nicotine, smokeless tobacco contains nearly thirty other ingredients known to cause cancer!
3 The image of baseball players using smokeless tobacco doesn't help promote the idea that it is dangerous. Instead, this can make it appealing to those who don't know the facts. The facts are that about 70% of those using smokeless tobacco have sores in their mouths. Using smokeless tobacco can destroy taste buds. Mouth cancer is a real possibility to users.
