That is a very good: ...Question. Many folks use tobacco products and never have cancer but a large number of folks suffering of different kinds of cancers have been users. You can't tell who will and who won't. Chewing tobacco is a risky habit and (no disrespect intended) kinda disgusting. Believe me, you do not want to see what could happen to you if you continue. Please please do not use tobacco in any form.
