Snus is a gateway to smoking among adolescents

Adolescent health The use of snus (moist snuff), a less negative attitude towards smoking and low self-esteem increase the risk of adolescents becoming smokers before they complete upper secondary school. Researchers at Umeå University, Center for Clinical Research Dalarna and Uppsala University, Sweden, claim this in a study in which they monitored the health development of a group of Swedish adolescents.
