Swedish Snus has been studied by the Swedish and British medical establishments and is believed to be between 90-99% less harmful than cigarettes. There is no evidence that it causes oral cancer, or contributes to heart disease. The Swedish medical establishment has already endorsed it as a form of “harm reduction”, as has the Royal College of Physicians in the UK.
The response in the EU has been to outright ban the product, and American physicians know little or nothing about it, other than if it contains tobacco it must be”evil”. Presented below is a brief synopsis of a 60 minutes segment on Swedish Snus. I hope you find it informative.
