In brief: Tobacco = cancer
Tobacco is a potent carcinogen.
Any form of tobacco exposure increases your risk for cancer. There is no good reason to use tobacco on your body for any reason. People have been known to use tobacco to kill insects in the garden. Not a good thing to put in your mouth! yet people use it too calm their nerves, or because they are addicted to tobacco.

In brief: Chew Tobacco
There is no good reason to chew tobacco! it is a strong carcinogen that is put in direct contact with the delicate tissues of the oral cavity.
You may think you look tough chewing tobacco, but when you are diagnosed with cancer of the mouth that tough look will turn into extreme fear and horror. It is a very addictive form of tobacco. It is not if you will get cancer, but when. Stop now!
