Smokeless Tobacco and Teens

The use of smokeless tobacco among adolescents and teens continues at just over 5% prevalence in middle and high school students in the U.S. This data comes from the National Youth Tobacco Survey. In spite of tough approaches to cigarette use, distribution of smokeless tobacco products are not prohibited. While the use of 'chaw' may reduce the risk of lung cancer, it increases the risk of mouth cancer.

PositiveTip: Treat all tobacco products alike. Avoid them as you would poison.
