Stop chewing tobacco advice26th September 2012

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.
