You can call chewing tobacco by whatever name you want — smokeless tobacco, spit tobacco, chew, snuff, pinch or dip — but don’t call it harmless. Whether you use chewing tobacco or other types of smokeless tobacco, be forewarned: chewing tobacco can cause serious health problems.

All tobacco products contain nicotine, which is super addictive. Smokeless tobacco also contains 28 cancer-causing agents (carcinogens).

Through With Chew Week is February 15-21st. Here’s what you can do:
