Stop chewing tobacco advice

26th September 2012

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence has issued new guidance aimed at helping people in South Asian communities stop using smokeless tobacco products like paan.

It fears that too often people using these products are unaware that they contain tobacco and can cause illnesses like cancer, though there are no health warnings on the packs. As well as containing tobacco, they can have more nicotine in them than smoked tobacco products do and may also contain other unhealthy ingredients.
