Tobacco use among middle and high school students--Florida, 1998 and 1999. (1/480)

Tobacco use is the single leading preventable cause of death in the United States, and an estimated $2 billion is spent annually in Florida to treat disease caused by smoking. Florida appropriated $23 million in fiscal year 1997 and $70 million in fiscal year 1998 to fund the Florida Pilot Program on Tobacco Control to prevent and reduce tobacco use among Florida youth. To determine the prevalence of cigarette, cigar, and smokeless tobacco (i.e., chewing tobacco and snuff) use among Florida middle and high school students in public schools, the Florida Department of Health conducted the Florida Youth Tobacco Survey (FYTS) in February 1998 and February 1999. The purpose of these surveys was to establish baseline parameters and monitor the progress of the pilot program, which began in April 1998. This report summarizes advance data from the surveys, which indicate that, from 1998 to 1999, the percentage of Florida public middle and high school students who smoked cigarettes decreased significantly and that the percentage of middle school students who smoked cigars and used smokeless tobacco products decreased significantly.  (+info)

Oesophageal subepithelial fibrosis: an extension of oral submucosal fibrosis. (2/480)

Fifty-five patients with oral submucosal fibrosis and an equal number of patients with no evidence of the disease were studied. All patients underwent upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and any abnormality was noted. Multiple oesophageal biopsies were obtained from the upper end of the oesophagus and from any endoscopically observed abnormality. The histological changes in the two groups were assessed blindly by an experienced histopathologist. Histological abnormalities were noted in the oesophageal mucosa in 2% of controls and 66% of patients with oral submucosal fibrosis (p < 0.0001). In the control group, acanthosis was seen in one patient, while in the patient group atrophy of the squamous epithelium was evident in 52%, hyperkeratosis in 52%, parakeratosis in 30%, dyskeratosis in 14%, acanthosis in 14%, and papillomatosis and mild dysplasia in 2% patients. Subepithelial collagenization was seen in 32 (64%) patients. The oesophageal abnormalities were seen more frequently in patients who had consumed Pan masala, Gutka, betel nut, tobacco or a combination of some or all of these, with or without betel leaf, for > or = 5 years compared to those consuming them for a shorter period of time (91% vs 46%, p < 0.001). It is concluded that oral submucosal fibrosis is not a disease confined to the oral cavity; the oesophagus may also be involved in about two-thirds of patients.  (+info)

Determination of nicotine, pH, and moisture content of six U.S. commercial moist snuff products--Florida, January-February 1999. (3/480)

The use of smokeless tobacco (moist snuff and chewing tobacco) can cause oral cancer and precancerous oral lesions (leukoplakia) and is a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases and nicotine addiction. Despite these adverse effects, smokeless tobacco is used commonly in the United States by young people, especially male high school students. Officials in Florida requested CDC assistance in analyzing six moist snuff products to measure three factors that affect their nicotine dose: pH, nicotine content, and moisture content. This report summarizes the results of the analysis, which indicate that the pH, amount of nicotine, and moisture vary widely among brands.  (+info)

Facklamia tabacinasalis sp. nov., from powdered tobacco. (4/480)

An unknown Gram-positive, catalase-negative, facultatively anaerobic, coccus-shaped organism originating as a contaminant of snuff was characterized by phenotypic and molecular taxonomic methods. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing studies demonstrated that the bacterium represents a new subline within the genus Facklamia. The unknown bacterium was readily distinguished from Facklamis hominis and Facklamia ignava by biochemical tests and electrophoretic analysis of whole-cell proteins. On the basis of phylogenetic and phenotypic evidence, it is proposed that the unknown bacterium be classified as Facklamia tabacinasalis sp. nov., the type strain of which is CCUG 30090T.  (+info)

Dexamethasone attenuates acute macromolecular efflux increase evoked by smokeless tobacco extract. (5/480)

The purpose of this study was to determine whether dexamethasone attenuates the acute increase in macromolecular efflux from the oral mucosa elicited by an aqueous extract of smokeless tobacco (STE) in vivo, and, if so, whether this response is specific. Using intravital microscopy, we found that 20-min suffusion of STE elicited significant, concentration-related leaky site formation and an increase in clearance of fluorescein isothiocyanate-labeled dextran (FITC-dextran; mol mass 70 kDa) from the in situ hamster cheek pouch (P < 0.05). This response was significantly attenuated by dexamethasone (10 mg/kg iv). Dexamethasone also attenuated the bradykinin-induced leaky site formation and the increase in clearance of FITC-dextran from the cheek pouch. However, it had no significant effects on adenosine-induced responses. Dexamethasone had no significant effects on baseline arteriolar diameter and on bradykinin-induced vasodilation in the cheek pouch. Collectively, these data indicate that dexamethasone attenuates, in a specific fashion, the acute increase in macromolecular efflux from the in situ oral mucosa evoked by short-term suffusion of STE. We suggest that corticosteroids mitigate acute oral mucosa inflammation elicited by smokeless tobacco.  (+info)

Smokeless tobacco as a possible risk factor for myocardial infarction: a population-based study in middle-aged men. (6/480)

OBJECTIVES: To explore whether the use of snuff affects the risk of myocardial infarction (MI). BACKGROUND: Snuff and other forms of smokeless tobacco are widely used in some populations. Possible health hazards associated with the use of smokeless tobacco remain controversial. METHODS: In a population-based study within the framework of the Northern Sweden center of the World Health Organization Multinational Monitoring of Trend and Determinants in Cardiovascular Disease (WHO MONICA) Project, tobacco habits were compared in 25- to 64-year-old men with first-time fatal or nonfatal MI and referent subjects matched for age and place of living (687 cases, 687 referents). RESULTS: The unadjusted odds ratio (OR) for MI in regular cigarette smokers as compared with men who never used tobacco was 3.65 (95% confidence interval [CI] 2.67 to 4.99). When nonsmoking regular snuff dippers were compared with never-users of tobacco, the unadjusted OR was 0.96 (0.65 to 1.41). After adjustment for multiple cardiovascular risk factors, the OR was 3.53 (95% CI 2.48 to 5.03) for regular smoking and 0.58 (95% CI 0.35 to 0.94) for regular snuff dipping. Restricting the analyses to fatal cases of myocardial (including sudden death) showed a tendency towards increased risk among snuff dippers 1.50 (95% CI 0.45 to 5.03). CONCLUSIONS: The risk of MI is not increased in snuff dippers. Nicotine is probably not an important contributor to ischemic heart disease in smokers. A possible small or modest detrimental effect of snuff dipping on the risk for sudden death could not be excluded in this study due to a limited number of fatal cases.  (+info)

Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of moist snuff in humans. (7/480)

INTERVENTION: Four brands of moist snuff and a non-tobacco mint snuff were tested. Subjects reported to the laboratory for five experimental sessions. After baseline measurement of dependent variables, each subject placed 2 g of one of the brands of snuff (or one Skoal Bandits pouch) between the cheek and gum for 30 minutes. The subjects remained in the experimental laboratory for an additional 60 minutes. SUBJECTS: Ten volunteers who were daily users of smokeless tobacco. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Plasma nicotine concentration, cardiovascular effects, and subjective effects. RESULTS: Large amounts of nicotine were delivered rapidly to the bloodstream. The amount of nicotine absorbed and the rate of absorption were related to the pH of the snuff product in aqueous suspension. Cardiovascular and subjective effects were related to the amount of nicotine absorbed. CONCLUSIONS: Snuff products are capable of rapidly delivering high doses of nicotine, which can lead to dependence. Long-term use of snuff can lead to a number of adverse health effects including oral cancers, cardiovascular diseases, and gingival diseases. For these reasons, it is important that the public health community considers oral snuff use as a burden on public health in the same way that cigarette smoking is recognised.  (+info)

Smokeless tobacco in Canada: deterring market development. (8/480)

DATA SOURCES: A review of the literature identified demographic, cultural, and marketing variables related to the uptake and continuation of smokeless tobacco use. Government and industry data on production, marketing, and consumption of smokeless tobacco products are presented. METHODS: The Canadian and American markets are compared in terms of prevalence, consumption per capita, and marketing practices. Lessons to be learned from the well-orchestrated development of the American market in the past 30 years are examined. Canadian tobacco regulations are described. Strategies by which the increased exploitation of the Canadian smokeless tobacco market can be deterred are discussed. CONCLUSIONS: A long-term, independently financed strategy built around a national smokeless tobacco de-marketing organisation with a constellation of private local institutions is suggested as a means of combating smokeless tobacco marketing efforts.  (+info)

For the primary goals, we hypothesize that 1) the oral tobacco product will be more efficacious than the medicinal nicotine product in substituting for smoking cigarettes; 2) among non-abstainers, the oral tobacco product will lead to greater reduction in cigarette smoking than medicinal nicotine; and 3) a higher rate of oral tobacco compared to medicinal nicotine use will be observed during and beyond the treatment period.. For the secondary goals, we hypothesize that 1) both products will equally reduce withdrawal symptoms and negative affect from cigarette abstinence, but smokers who are assigned to the oral tobacco product will be more likely to report liking the effects from their assigned product compared to those smokers assigned to medicinal nicotine; 2) greater physiological effects (e.g., vitals) will be observed for the oral tobacco product compared to medicinal nicotine; 3) the toxicant exposure and toxicity will be reduced dramatically when smokers switch from cigarettes to each of ...
In 2016, the CORESTA Smokeless Tobacco Sub-Group (STS) (now named Tobacco and Tobacco Products Analytes Sub-Group, TTPA) conducted a small scale investigational study for the determination of nitrite and nitrate in smokeless tobacco products using ion chromatography (IC) and/or continuous flow analysis (CFA).

In view of its widespread use and increasing awareness of the associated risks, there is a need for a detailed assessment of its impact on health. We present the first global estimates of the burden of disease due to consumption of smokeless tobacco by adults. Methods: The burden attributable to smokeless tobacco use in adults was estimated as a proportion of the disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) lost and deaths reported in the 2010 Global Burden of Disease study. We used the comparative risk assessment method, which evaluates changes in population health that result from modifying a populations ...
This study will be accomplished by allowing subjects to sample the products and choose one oral tobacco product that they will use instead of cigarettes for a two week period. After the two weeks, they will discontinue all tobacco use and withdrawal symptoms and abstinence rates will be observed.. Subjects will attend an orientation visit where the study will be explained in detail. Interested subjects will sign a consent form and be scheduled to return for baseline measures. Subjects will have a review of medical history to verify that they are in generally good health and do not have contraindications to the study products. Eligible subjects will collect one week of baseline measures while smoking at their normal rate: measures include daily diaries of smoking, questionnaires and urine samples. At the second baseline visit, they will receive samples of the oral tobacco products. The tobacco products tested are five novel oral products recently introduced to the market: 1) Camel Snus (higher ...
The toxicities and oxidative stress-inducing actions of (−)-nicotine and smokeless tobacco extract (STE), containing equivalent amounts of nicotine, were studied. Toxicities were determined by colony formation assays using Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells. Results indicated that nicotine is less toxic than smokeless tobacco extract that contained the same amount of nicotine. The generation of reactive oxygen species, following treatment with smokeless tobacco extract and nicotine, was assessed by measurement of changes in glutathione (GSH) and malondialdehyde (MDA) levels. CHO cells (5 × 105 cells/5 ml media) were incubated with 4, 0.8, and 0.08 mg of nicotine and STE containing the same amounts of nicotine. All preparations of smokeless tobacco extract significantly decreased GSH levels and increased MDA generation. However, 0.08 mg of nicotine treatment did not result in a significant change in GSH level, and only 4 mg of nicotine were sufficient to increase MDA generation. Addition of free

Source: DrugFree.org. A type of smokeless tobacco popular in Sweden called snus is growing in popularity in the United States. While most recognize that it is a safer alternative to cigarettes or older forms of smokeless tobacco, others are concerned that it will attract young people, becoming a steppingstone to cigarettes, says a researcher who spoke this week at the Smokeless Tobacco Summit in Austin, TX.. There is also concern that smokers may use snus in places where they cant smoke, which will encourage them to keep smoking instead of quitting, says Lois Biener, PhD, Adjunct Professor, Department of Psychology at the University Of Massachusetts - Boston and Senior Research Fellow at the Center for Survey Research, University Of Massachusetts - Boston.. Snus (pronounced snoos) was first introduced in several U.S. test markets in 2006, and has been available nationwide since 2009. It is sold under several brands including Marlboro Snus and Camel Snus. The product is different from other ...
13 August 2020. University of York, Medical Express:. The number of deaths globally due to smokeless tobacco has gone up by a third in 7 years to an estimated 350,000 people, a new study suggests.. The research, from the University of York, comes at a time when there are concerns that spitting-a behaviour common among those who chew tobacco-is likely to transmit the COVID-19 virus.. The researchers-who are part of an international group called ASTRA-are calling for governments and public health bodies to regulate the production and sale of smokeless tobacco. They say a ban on spitting in public places will also discourage smokeless tobacco use and may reduce the transmission of COVID-19.. Dr. Kamran Siddiqi, from the Department of Health Sciences and Hull York Medical School, said: The study has come at a time when COVID-19 is affecting almost all aspects of our lives. Chewing tobacco increases saliva production and leads to compulsive spitting.. There are concerns that spitting-a behaviour ...
|i|Introduction|/i|. Smokeless tobacco is considered one of the major risk factors for oral cancer. It is estimated that over 90% of the global smokeless tobacco use burden is in South Asia. This paper aims to systematically review publications reporting epidemiological observational studies published in South Asia from 1984 till 2013. |i|Methods|/i|. An electronic search in “Medline” and “ISI Web of Knowledge” yielded 734 publications out of which 21 were included in this review. All publications were assessed for quality using a standard quality assessment tool. Effect estimates (odds ratios (OR)) were abstracted or calculated from the given data. A random effects meta-analysis was performed to assess the risk of oral cancer with the use of different forms of smokeless tobacco. |i|Results and Conclusion|/i|. The pooled OR for chewing tobacco and risk of oral cancer was 4.7 [3.1–7.1] and for paan with tobacco and risk of oral cancer was 7.1 [4.5–11.1]. The
Smokeless tobacco usage is a growing public health concern in the United States. Lesions of the oral cavity have been clearly linked to smokeless tobacco use. The objective of this study was to determine the biochemical effects of smokeless tobacco extract (STE) exposure upon hamster cheek pouch cel …
Although smokeless tobacco users have long believed that snuff and chewing tobacco are safer than smoking cigarettes, a recent study has revealed some disturbing findings regarding the alternative tobacco products.. According to Science Daily, although smokeless tobacco products do not burn, thus not producing inhalable smoke, just one pinch exposes the user to the same amount of a group of dangerous chemicals as the smoke from five cigarettes. One pinch is the equivalent of one portion. The study looked at health concerns beyond what is already known about nitrosamines and nicotine, said Science Daily, and researched polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in smokeless tobacco. The findings were reported at the 238th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS).. According to scientists involved in the research, the study’s findings add to existing scientific knowledge that smokeless tobacco products contain two-dozen ...
If whole of the molar is removed, then the missing tooth can be replaced with dental implants or dental bridge. If molar is broken and and tooth structure is still left, then tooth can be restored with root canal treatment, post and core procedure and dental crown. If only the roots of molar are left inside, then you can get the roots pulled and get dental implants or dental bridge to replace the missing tooth. For detailed info, visit..... Effect of smokeless tobacco on oral tissues Smokeless tobacco causes many health problems and can lead to mouth ulcers. Smokeless tobacco effect the mouth by causing various oral problems such as gums recession, tooth decay, oral lesion, leukoplakia etc. Smokeless tobacco products have sweeteners present which lead to increase in incidence of dental caries. Tooth abrasion occurs because of affect of smokeless tobacco. Smokeless tobacco causes precancerous oral lesions and can even lead to cancer. Leukoplakia, oral sub mucous fibrosis, Lichen planus can occur ...
Tobacco is a uniquely dangerous consumer product that is addictive and harmful to human health when used as intended. Smokeless tobacco practices are common in some parts of the world, especially in India (Pershagen, 1996). Nicotine exposure is similar in smokeless tobacco users and smokers (Ebbert et al., 2006) often leading to strong physical dependence. As a rule, smokeless tobacco products contain high levels of nitrosamines with carcinogenic potency in experimental animals (Phillips et al., 2004). Habitual use of oral tobacco can increase the risk of oral cancer, but the data are insufficient to assess in detail the risks associated with many types of smokeless tobacco. Tobacco induces DNA adducts and oxidative DNA damage in human tissues. Formation of carcinogen- DNA adducts in critical genes can lead to mutations that alter protein function and that cause the carcinogenic progression of cells from normality to neoplasias (Hainaut et al., 2001; Cooper, 2002). Goran Pershagen suggested that
Myers et al. also claim that Tobacco use is the number one preventable cause of death in the United States. This is grossly misleading, as it combines smokings dramatic fatality figures with the far more benign use of smokeless tobacco (2). For example, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that over 400,000 Americans die every year from smoking-attributable diseases (3), but the comparable number attributed to smokeless tobacco use is so low that the CDC has never attempted to provide an estimate. American Cancer Society Vice President Emeritus Michael J. Thun participated in a 2004 study concluding that …smokeless tobacco products pose a substantially lower risk to the user than do conventional cigarettes. This finding raises ethical questions concerning whether it is inappropriate and misleading for government officials or public health experts to characterize smokeless tobacco products as comparably dangerous with cigarette smoking. (4 ...
Although smoking shows a strong negative association with religiousness, no studies have appeared of use of smokeless tobacco (ST) and religiousness. To assess an association of use of ST and religiousness, data from 9,374 men aged 17 years and over with complete data on self-reported frequency of attendance at religious services and use of smokeless tobacco were analyzed. Among men aged 17-29 years, 4.9% of frequent attenders (|=24 times/y) and 9.4% of others (
When using smokeless tobacco, nicotine is absorbed across the lining of the mouth. Many factors affect this, including the physical characteristics of the product (chewing tobacco, fine cut moist snuff, powdered snuff, pouch, etc.), and how it is held in or moved around the mouth. An important factor is the products pH - its acidity or alkalinity. Nicotine cannot be absorbed efficiently in an acidic environment like that of the stomach; thats the reason tobacco isnt consumed like tea or coffee ...

AimsIt has been suggested that moist snuff (snus), a smokeless tobacco product that is high in nicotine and widespread in Scandinavia, increases the risk of Type 2 diabetes. Previous studies are however few, contradictory and, with regard to autoimmune diabetes, lacking. Our aim was to study the association between snus use and the risk of Type 2 diabetes and latent autoimmune diabetes of adulthood (LADA). MethodAnalyses were based on incident cases (Type 2 diabetes, n = 724; LADA, n = 200) and population-based controls (n = 699) from a Swedish case-control study. Additional analyses were performed on cross-sectional data from the Norwegian HUNT study (n = 21 473) with 829 prevalent cases of Type 2 diabetes. Odds ratios (OR) were estimated adjusted for age, BMI family history of diabetes and smoking. Only men were included. ResultsNo association between snus use and Type 2 diabetes or LADA was seen in the Swedish data. For Type 2 diabetes, the OR for , 10 box-years was 1.00 [95% confidence ...
So what has happened in Sweden and why is this so relevant to the further regulation of tobacco products as it is currently proposed by the EU Commission?. The overall prevalence of total tobacco use in the EU is approximately 25 to 30% of the adult population, but tobacco use patterns in the EU vary country-by-country - and a unique situation has developed in Sweden.. At present, the Swedes have the highest prevalence of snus use and the lowest prevalence of smoking in the EU, down to a mere 13% in men and 16% for women in 2008/2009. By contrast, the per-capita consumption of snus approximately doubled between 1970 and 2008 (Drug Trends Sweden, 2010), with 21% of male adults now using smokeless tobacco.. This constitutes a major change in tobacco consumption preferences, and when coupled with the view of the WHO quoted above, marks an important development that needs to be better understood and warrants closer examination.. We find that in both Sweden and Norway - where use of smokeless tobacco ...
Objective: To identify predictors of smokeless tobacco (ST) initiation among young adults. Methods: A military cohort (N=28,229) was analyzed to identify variables associated with ST initiation. Results: Baseline current cigarette smoking at baseline was a strong predictor for any ST use (OR 3.88; 95% CI: 3.33-4.52) and daily ST use (OR 3.01, 2.34-3.88) as was experimental ST use for any (OR 2.39, 2.09-2.73) and daily ST use (OR 2.41, 1.93-3.01). Conclusions: Smoking and previous ST use are strong predictors for ST use in adults. Research is needed to characterize ST initiation and changes in smoking behavior over time ...
A systematic review was conducted of epidemiological studies focusing on the association between smokeless tobacco (SLT) use and coronary heart disease (CHD) in order to summarize the evidence and to identify scope for further study in South Asian countries. PubMed and ISI Web of Science databases were searched to find epidemiological studies (cohort, case-control and cross-sectional) published until 27 October, 2011. The search revealed 592 relevant references, from which 18 epidemiological studies were selected. Among the 18 studies, 11 studies were conducted in Sweden, 4 in the USA, 1 in India, 1 in Bangladesh, and 1 study was multi-centric involving 52 countries. Twelve studies included only men and six studies included both sexes. Three studies used South Asian SLT products. Nine studies found no statistically significant positive association between SLT use and CHD, while nine studies did find a positive association. Results of these studies differed according to age, gender, and SLT ...

Opponents of smokeless tobacco have presented numbers that suggest these products are an enormous public-health threat akin to cigarettes, while supporters suggest smokeless items could offer a solution to smokings toll on public health. Both claims are based on misinterpretations of the data.
In this study, we have analyzed important tobacco-related biomarkers for over 23,000 NHANES participants from 1999 to 2012. To our knowledge, this work provides the first estimates from a large, nationally representative U.S. health survey population that compare cotinine and NNAL concentrations for smokeless tobacco and cigarette users and presents trends in NNAL concentrations over time. We have found higher cotinine concentrations and much higher NNAL concentrations for smokeless tobacco users compared with cigarette smokers as well as higher NNAL concentrations for dual users compared with smokers. We have also found evidence that NNAL concentrations among smokeless tobacco users are declining over time, although the sample sizes for this analysis were limited due to the introduction of analysis of NNAL with the 2007 to 2008 NHANES cycle. We also found that smokeless tobacco users have higher concentrations of lead, but not cadmium, mercury, arsenic, or CYMA, compared with nontobacco ...
The study was conducted to find out the effect of smokeless tobacco (ST) on the intraocular pressure (IOP) among non-smokers and smokers. Thirty-seven healthy volunteers of between 19-30 years age, classified into two groups, non-smokers (n=22) and- smokers (n=15), were used. The IOPs of the right eyes were measured before (0min) and 1, 3 and 5mins after sniffing 40mg ST with Pulsair 2000 tonometer. Among non-smokers and smokers, the difference in mean IOP at different times (0min, 1min, 3mins and 5mins) was statistically significant by one-way ANOVA (p,0.05). Post hoc analysis using Duncan multiple range (DMR) test showed that the peak IOP was at 1min after sniffing ST. The difference in IOP before sniffing ST between smokers and non-smokers was statistically significant by Mann-Whitney test (p,0.05). Also the difference in the peak time of 1min between smokers and non-smokers was statistically significant (p,0.05). It was concluded that ST stimulates aqueous humour formation thereby tending to ...

Its just as hard to quit smokeless tobacco as it is to quit smoking. Quitting tobacco is hard because your body craves the nicotine. Giving it up is more than just kicking a bad habit. Your body has to stop the cravings. Thats why you may feel grouchy or restless or have a hard time concentrating for the first 2 to 3 weeks after you quit. For some people, these feelings can last several weeks. Nicotine gum, lozenges, patches, and other medicines can help reduce the cravings.. But its not just the nicotine that makes it hard to quit. Its the habit of using smokeless tobacco. Its part of your daily routine. You enjoy it. You may use it to deal with stress. And when you quit, you have to give all that up (or at least find something to replace it).. Quitting chew or snuff isnt easy, but you can do it. Just thinking about quitting is the first step.. ...
In recent months, you have published a debate on cigarette labelling and also on whether the EU should continue to bar snus - Swedish snuff - beyond Swedens borders (Cut out the smoke, reduce the risks and More tobacco is not the answer, 16-22 May). I would like to add my voice to those who have pointed out that the ban on snus is difficult to understand from the point of view of science-based quantitative risk assessment, all the more so since the EU permits the sale of nasal snuff and chewing tobacco that are far more hazardous than the outlawed Swedish oral moist snuff.. The potentially most problematic substances in smokeless tobacco products are nitrosamines (TSNA) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH). The Swedish Food Federation recently commissioned a study of the presence of these from Eurofins, a world-leading corporation for food and pharmaceutical products testing. Its analysis of 27 smokeless tobacco products marketed within the EU revealed that, in comparison with Swedish ...

Smokeless tobacco has several health risks including cancer, and its not a safe substitute for cigarette smoking. There are no safe forms of tobacco. The National Cancer Institute states there are approximately 28 chemicals in smokeless tobacco that can cause cancer. Also, according to the American Cancer Society, people who use smokeless tobacco have a higher chance of developing oral and throat cancer than people who dont use tobacco. Users of smokeless tobacco are also at higher risk for developing pancreatic cancer. Smokeless tobacco can also cause white sores called leukoplakia to develop in the mouth (these may eventually lead to cancer).. Apart from cancer, dipping has several other health consequences. Tobacco contains nicotine, an addictive substance which can cause chemical dependence. Chemical dependence makes it difficult for folks to quit using tobacco even when they are aware of the possible health consequences. Increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, and the levels of ...
People who use smokeless tobacco products are exposed to as much or more nicotine and cancer-causing chemicals in tobacco products as cigarette smokers, according to a government study.
Smokeless tobacco products, such as chewing tobacco and snuff, are not safe or effective alternatives for people who want to quit smoking, says the American Heart Association.
In this application note, we describe a UPLC-MS/MS method for TSNA analysis in tobacco products that has been developed based on the CORESTA standard (CRM-72), and provides further improvements in sensitivity, linear dynamic range, sample workflow, and overall analysis throughput.
The goal of this project is to determine the minimal number of testing replicates that provides acceptable variability in the measurement of harmful and potentially harmful constituents (HPHCs) and physical product characteristics data for smokeless tobacco products in the US.

The FDA website includes several glaring errors on its Established List of Harmful and Potentially Harmful Constituents in Tobacco Products or Tobacco Smoke (here). For example, the list wrongly identifies acrylamide as both a respiratory and a cardiovascular toxicant. It is neither of these. It is a probable human carcinogen, according to IARC, and it was correctly labeled in the list published in the federal register (here). I recently collaborated with scientists from BAT to publish a comprehensive analysis of acrylamide in smokeless tobacco products from Sweden and the U.S. (here). Our study showed that it is present in all products we tested, but exposure… from consumption of smokeless tobacco products is small compared with exposure from food… or cigarette smoking ...

However, few studies have examined factors related to ST use in the military. The present study evaluated the characteristics of ST use in 785 active duty military personnel. The results indicated that the average age of initiation was 17.7 years, participants had used ST for 12.3 years, and they used approximately four tins or pouches of tobacco per week. Army personnel were more likely than Air Force personnel to be older, to have used ST longer, and to be heavier users. Officers had ...
Objective: Nasal use of snuff is the predominant form of tobacco use among black South African women. This study examines the association between snuff use and chronic bronchitis (CB) among black South African women. Design: The study investigates a nationally representative sample of 4,464 black women ≥25 years old who participated in the 1998 South African Demographic and Health Survey. Data on participants tobacco use patterns, medical history and other relevant factors were obtained through an interviewer-administered questionnaire. Peak expiratory flow rates (PEFR) were also measured. Data analysis included chi-square statistics, t-tests and multiple logistic regression analysis. Outcome measure: CB, defined as reporting a productive cough for ≥3months/year for at least two successive years. Results: The prevalence of current snuff use was 16.1% (n=719). Compared to non-users of snuff, snuff users were not only more likely to present with a history of tuberculosis (TB) (23.3% vs. ...
Tuesday, July 7, 2015. The World Health Organisation has urged governments around the world to increase taxes on cigarettes and other tobacco products to save lives. Tobacco kills approximately 60 lakh people annually, 20% of them live in the South-East Asia region, including India. The region also accounts for 25% of the worlds smokers and almost 90% of smokeless tobacco users. Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh, regional director, WHO South-East Asia Region, on Tuesday said stronger initiatives and focused cessation efforts were required. Improved tax measures, stronger law enforcement and enhanced cessation efforts are urgently needed in the region to protect people against the ill-effects of tobacco which continues to be a major public health issue, she said. WHO released a report on the Global Tobacco Epidemic, 2015, on Tuesday. Recent estimates show that there are about 24.6 crore smokers and 29 crore smokeless tobacco users in the region. ...
The tobacco-specific nitrosamine 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK) is one of the most abundant carcinogens in smokeless tobacco products. NNK uptake by measurement of the urinary metabolites 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanol and its glucuronides (total NNAL) has been reported in many studies, but there are no data in the literature on the percentage of the NNK dose that is converted to NNAL in smokeless tobacco users. In this study, 15 male subjects abstained from tobacco use for 3 weeks before placing 2 g smokeless tobacco between their cheeks and gums for 30 min. They then continued abstinence and collected three consecutive 24-h urine samples. The amount of NNK in the tobacco before and after use was determined along with the amount in expectorated saliva. The NNK dose thus calculated was compared with the amount of total NNAL excreted in the next 72 h. These data, taken together with previous pharmacokinetic data, show that the percent conversion of NNK to total NNAL
Smokeless tobacco products (snuff, chewing tobacco, snus and dissolvables) containing menthol are highly popular.1 ,2 Menthol adds a fresh, cooling and minty taste, sensations that are reminiscent of other tobacco products such as menthol cigarettes and of confectionary products such as chewing gum and mint lozenges. Menthol may increase the palatability of smokeless products that contain tobacco ingredients with aversive flavours, thereby facilitating initiation of product use.3. Nicotine levels in smokeless tobacco products are sufficient to be perceived as irritating by humans, eliciting burning and tingling sensations in the mouth.4 ,5 Nicotine also has an aversively bitter taste.5 In recent studies in mice, we demonstrated that menthol inhibits the respiratory irritation response to cigarette smoke irritants such as acrolein and to cigarette smoke itself.6 ,7 These mice had never been exposed to cigarette smoke before, mimicking initiating users. Higher levels of cotinine were detected in ...
The majority of the worlds 1.3 billion tobacco users are men, but female use is increasing (1,2). To examine differences in tobacco use and awareness of tobacco marketing by sex, CDC and health officials in Bangladesh, Thailand, and Uruguay (among the first countries to report results) analyzed 2009 data from a newly instituted survey, the Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS). This report summarizes the results of that analysis, which indicated wide variation among the three countries in tobacco use, product types used, and marketing awareness among males and females. In Bangladesh and Thailand, use of smoked tobacco products was far greater among males (44.7% and 45.6%, respectively) than females (1.5% and 3.1%, respectively). In Uruguay, the difference was smaller (30.7% versus 19.8%). Use of smokeless tobacco products in Bangladesh was approximately the same among males (26.4%) and females (27.9%), but females were significantly more likely to use smokeless tobacco in Thailand (6.3% versus ...

Day, PhD3 (Author affiliations at end of text). Despite significant declines in cigarette smoking among U.S. adults over the past five decades, progress has slowed in recent years, and the prevalence of use of other tobacco products such as cigars and smokeless tobacco has not changed (1,2). Additionally, the prevalence of use of emerging products, including electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), has rapidly increased (3). This report provides the most recent national estimates of tobacco use among adults aged ≥18 years, using data from the 2012-2013 National Adult Tobacco Survey (NATS). The findings indicate that 21.3% of U.S. adults used a tobacco product every day or some days, and 25.2% used a tobacco product every day, some days, or rarely. Population-level interventions focused on the diversity of tobacco product use, ...

Spit tobacco, also known as chewing tobacco and snuff, are forms of tobacco that are put between the cheek and gum. Chewing tobacco can be in the form of leaf tobacco (which is packaged in pouches), or plug tobacco (which are packaged in brick form). Snuff is a powdered form of tobacco, usually sold in cans. The nicotine is released from the tobacco as the user chews. Although chewing tobacco and snuff are considered smokeless tobacco products, harmful chemicals including nicotine are ingested. More than 28 cancer-causing chemicals have been found in smokeless tobacco.. Chewing tobacco and snuff can cause cancer in the cheek, gums, and lips. Like a pipe, cancer often occurs where the tobacco is held in the mouth. Cancer caused by smokeless tobacco often begins as leukoplakia (a condition characterized by a whitish patch that develops inside the mouth or throat) or erythroplakia (a condition characterized by a red, raised patch that develops inside the mouth). Other problems associated ...

To enter, Little Leaguers ages 8-14 create a ten-word phrase that describes why spit tobacco is dangerous and deadly.. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, since 2003 there has been a 36 percent increase in the rate of smokeless tobacco use among high school boys. This alarming statistic is what led parents of the 2011 slogan contest winner, John and Julie Lafakis, to participate with their son Lou. In addition to being thrilled and proud of Lous slogan, said John Lafakis, we are equally delighted that the NSTEP contest provided an opportunity for our family to discuss the harms of tobacco use.. NSTEP works with Little League International to educate ...
Materials and Methods: A total of 1075 patients over the age of 14 years attending the Department of Periodontics, Peoples College of Dental Sciences and Research Centre, Bhopal, India from May to September 2009 were included in the study. Besides name, age and gender, information regarding tobacco habits was recorded through interviews. Based on the tobacco habits, the patients were grouped into 4 categories: group 1 (non-users of tobacco), group 2 (smokers only), group 3 (smokeless tobacco users only) and group 4 (users of both smoking and smokeless tobacco). Tooth loss was determined by clinical examination of all permanent teeth excluding the third molars. Tooth loss included missing or extracted teeth as well as teeth indicated for extraction due to periodontal disease, dental caries or wasting diseases. Prevalence and mean tooth loss for whole dentition, maxillary and mandibular arches were compared between the 4 groups. The chi-square test and one-way ANOVA were used for comparing the ...

The smokeless tobacco product is supposed to be used by smokers when they cant light up. It contains 1 mg of nicotine, about half that received by smoking one cigarette.. This amount can cause nausea and vomiting in a small child (a lethal dose of nicotine for an infant is about 1.0 mg/kg body weight). The problem is made worse by the fact that the Orb contains a highly bio-available form of nicotine.. To reach these conclusions, Hillel Alpert and colleagues from the Harvard School of Public Health reviewed 13,705 tobacco product ingestion cases by children under 6 years of age that were reported to 61 regional poison control centers between 2006 and 2008.. The scientists counted 13,705 cases of tobacco product ingestion, more than 70% of which involved infants less than 1 year of age. Orbs came in second only to cigarettes themselves as the substance ingested by the kids. There was one death.. In an accompanying editorial, Marisa Cruz and Lawrence Deyton of the FDA Center for Tobacco Products ...
From storied Fenway Park to youth baseball diamonds across the city, Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh is calling for a ban on dip, snuff and chewing tobacco.. With former Red Sox pitcher and mouth cancer survivor Curt Schilling at his side, the mayor on Wednesday proposed banning smokeless tobacco products from all city professional and amateur athletic venues.. Kids shouldnt have to watch their role models using tobacco, either at a neighborhood park or on TV, Walsh said, standing at home plate of a South Boston baseball diamond. Ballfields are places for mentoring and healthy development. Theyre no place for cancer-causing substances.. Schilling, who revealed earlier this year he was diagnosed with mouth cancer after decades of using chewing tobacco, described his battle with the illness, which he said is in remission.. It was more painful than anything you could imagine, he said, addressing the dozens of school-age kids in attendance. I couldnt swallow. I had to eat from a tube. I was ...

Smokeless tobacco products have been associated with increased risks of oro-pharyngeal cancers, due in part to the presence of tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNAs) such as 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK). These potent carcinogens are formed during tobacco curing and as a result of direct nitrosation reactions that occur in the oral cavity. In the current work we describe the isolation and characterization of a hybridoma secreting a high-affinity, NNK-specific monoclonal antibody. A structurally-related benzoyl derivative was synthesized to facilitate coupling to NNK-carrier proteins, which were characterized for the presence of the N-nitroso group using the Griess reaction, and used to immunize BALB/c mice. Splenocytes from mice bearing NNK-specific antibodies were used to create hybridomas. Out of four, one was selected for subcloning and characterization. Approximately 99% of the monoclonal antibodies from this clone were competitively displaced from plate-bound NNKB conjugates
