Default Snus Tobacco May Benefit Public Health

Snus tobacco has an overall positive effect on public health, a new study has found. Researchers at the Norwegian Institute of Alcohol and Drug Policy have determined that the smokefree tobacco product is associated with a net reduction in tobacco-related mortality. Although the product itself cannot be considered harmless, its market presence appears to curb cigarette use and boost cessation attempts.
The study examined how cigarette use is affected by the availability of snus a low nitrosamine, smokeless tobacco product similar to dipping tobacco. Study author Karl Erik Lund said that although the products Norwegian market share has increased from five percent to 30 percent since 1985, the overall consumption of tobacco has remained the same.
"The use of snus has not increased overall tobacco consumption but has reduced cigarette smoking in Norway, and this has happened without more people becoming new users," he said, speaking to The Local. "If the aim is to reduce tobacco-related mortality, letting snus compete with cigarettes is a good idea."

Default Snus and Public Health a Harm Reduction Experiment in Progress

Snus is manufactured and stored in a manner that causes it to deliver lower concentrations of some harmful chemicals than other tobacco products, although it can deliver high doses of nicotine. It is dependence forming, but does not appear to cause cancer or respiratory diseases. It may cause a slight increase in cardiovascular risks and is likely to be harmful to the unborn fetus, although these risks are lower than those caused by smoking.
