Another Alarm Report Over Moiste Oral Tobacco

The medical and information battle continues here over snus - or moiste oral tobacco pushed up under the lip – a form of tobacco banned by the rest of the European Union..

A new Swedish study by the prestigious Karolinska Institute in Stockholm claims that snus users have a 30% greater chance of having a stroke or heart attack. While some other studies have pointed to greater health risks, others have claimed that there are no side effects.

And others claim that whatever the truth may be, snus is fare less harmful than tobacco smoking.
