Chewing tobacco hides dangers

17th May 2011

The results of a report by the Race Equality Foundation and Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) foundation have shown that only 15% of tobacco products carry the correct health warnings and labels.

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.
