Interesting report.

I know that the headline is not meant to be good news but if it means that fewer people are smoking, it is a kind of success story you are reporting on.

You say "you can imagine the health consequences", however you do not have when there is plenty of evidence available.

Anyone who switches from smoking to using smokeless tobacco reduces their risks of all cancers. Its a very good move and almost as good as quitting. (Not that it is good that pregnant women are using it; nicotine is generally benign but it can have an effect on fetal development though even for them it is still probably better than smoking).

I have a 16 year old son who is getting dip somewhere. I have grounded him, taken away his phone, popped him on his mouth until he spit it out and he still will not tell me where he is getting it from. I have prayed, cryed, talked to the school, talked with my intire family and still NO GOOD. I rented my house out and moved in with my mother to help take care of my Dad when he was suffering with pancreatic cancer. I watched him suffer horribly and die. Then Me and my husband had to go out of town and take care of his Dad with cancer. I also watched it eat away my aunt. I need help!!!!! I don’t know what to do. I want him to live longer than me.
