Snus Comes to Protect Smokers from Nicotine Addiction

Tobacco Companies started to produce new smokeless tobacco products which can reduce the response to nicotine addiction. One of these companies is Imperial Tobacco Canada which sells a new smokeless tobacco, snus, in Canada.
Snus is a form of cured and cooked tobacco mixed with salt, flavorings and preservatives which has lower levels of cancer-causing nitrosamines than other oral tobaccos. It is packaged in loose form or in tea-bag style portions, each of which delivers about the same level of nicotine to a user as a single cigarette.  Users place a sachet under their upper lip and absorb the nicotine through their mucous membranes.
Snus users do not chew or actively suck the tobacco, and do not need to spit. It typically held in the mouth for 30 minutes before being discarded. A typical snus user would consume about 16 sachets each day. Snus is kept in the mouth by the average user for 11 to 14 hours per day.
Canada is the most recent country where Tobacco Companies have chosen to launch snus-style products under prominent cigarette brand names.  Snus is sold in “Lucky Strike” packaging in South Africa, and under the “Camel” brand name in some U.S. test markets.
Snus use is common in Scandinavia, especially in Sweden, where it’s more popular than cigarettes.
John Clayton, Imperial Tobacco Canada vice-president of corporate affairs, said that snus is a harm reduction tool because it reduces the impact of a behavior that exposes people to smoking.
He added that the increasing use of snus is having a net positive effect on smoking-related diseases in Sweden.
But anti-smoking advocates said that smokeless tobacco products still pose a risk to consumers’ health. François Damphousse, director of the Non-Smokers’ Rights Association, said that while products like chewing tobacco are not combustible and do not produce second-hand smoke, they are still toxic products.
