Snuff poses no risk to teeth

Using wet snuff does not cause your teeth to fall out after all, according to a new Swedish study.

It compared snuff users, smokers and people who used no tobacco at all, and found while smoking increases the risk of tooth-loss, snuff does not.

Swedes are the most enthusiastic snuff-users in the world, with around one in five men sticking it under their lips often, and about three per cent of women doing the same.

It has been banned across the European Union, except in Sweden, and has been linked to cancer and heart disease.
