Wisconsin Oral Health Program: Spit Tobacco Prevention Program

Using smokeless tobacco is not safer than smoking cigarettes. Chewing tobacco and snuff contain 28 cancer-causing agents (carcinogens) and increase the risk of oral cancer. Smokeless tobacco products are also not limited to chewing tobacco and snuff. For more information on smokeless tobacco products, visit the Wisconsin Tobacco Prevention and Control Program.
