I am not aware that nicotine chewing gum is known to cause cancer. I cannot think of a better reason. A patient of mine in his 40's recently had his neck dissected to remove 23 cancer filled lymph nodes and will now be undergoing radiation treatment. He was a smoker and had squamous cell carcinoma.
