Recommendation on Smokeless Tobacco Products
Smokeless tobacco use is a significant part of the overall world tobacco problem. Smokeless tobacco products are tobacco products without combustion or pyrolysis at the time of use. The prevalence of use is relatively high in many countries especially in South Asia (1). There is a great diversity of smokeless tobacco products and smokeless tobacco use patterns across the globe (1, 2). Oral use is by far the most common behaviour. Nasal use is very rare. Different smokeless tobacco products have a range of health hazards that differ in magnitude. Many of the products have not been studied for ingredients and health effects.
