Chewing tobacco hides dangers17th May 2011

Amanda Standford, head researcher at ASH, said the regulation of chewing tobacco needed to be improved. ''We need there to be an audit of all the products that are out there and then they need to be labelled according to current legislation. That way consumers are at least better informed about whether it is safe or not to use them," she said.
