Anyway, if you really want to try it, I suggest you order a "stock" of General Snus off the internet.
Also, avoid brands that aren't produced in Sweden, as there is no guarantee that they have actually been produced in a proper way, which may negate any advantages snus has over other tobacco products in terms of health.
My bad. I misremembered the feature.
The guy actually did keep it somewhere under his mouth, I stand corrected.
Again, what was interesting was that this is less harmful than smoking
Although the news show aimed to investigate both the pros and cons, the core message in the report was that smokeless tobacco may help you to quit smoking cigarettes and that it’s less harmful.
Swedish nicotine addiction expert Dr Karl Fagerström stated that snus is 90-99 percent less harmful than smoking.
The famous Swedish TV host Martin Timell explained that his mother died of lung cancer and that he was only able to quit smoking by switching to snus.
The counterpoint was an interview with an American control advocate who expressed concerns about many tobacco users becoming dual users (of both cigarettes and snus) and said that sometimes snus products look like candy to attract children.
All in all the news report was very good publicity for snus.
