In brief: Unclear.

Smokeless tobacco describes such a diversity of products.
Unfortunately most manufacturers don't tell the consumer exactly what their products contain. There are a number of additives which have been attributed to a risk of stomach cancer. In addition to reducing your risk of stomach cancer, not using smokeless tobacco has a number of other long-term important health benefits.
