Smokeless tobacco carries significant health risks and is not a safe alternative to smoking cigarettes. It contains the same addictive chemical (nicotine) that is in cigarettes, which can lead to addiction and dependence.
The amount of nicotine absorbed from smokeless tobacco is three to four times the amount delivered by a cigarette. Smokeless tobacco use has been linked to several different types of cancer, including cancer of the mouth, esophagus and pancreas.
