I've been working on this a while and I'm glad to finally have some articles up. When I first started using snus, I heard the term "Harm Reduced Tobacco" thrown around alot, and alot of information about snus here and there, so I wanted to compile all the helpful articles online so that those new to snus or interested in switching can read about the health benefits of switching from cigarettes to snus, and skeptics can read some facts by experts and doctors.


Click the photo above to view our article researching tobacco harm reduction, debunking the cancer myths, and the benefits of quitting smoking with snus instead of other NRT products.
