One Final Recommendation

Do not use tobacco in any form.

Tobacco is a major risk factor for cancer. It is the main cause of lung cancer and causes cancers of the mouth and throat. Drinkers who also smoke increase the risk of these cancers even more. Tobacco contributes to cancers of the pancreas, cervix and bladder.

It is an addictive drug, and it is also the major cause of coronary heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, other diseases of the cardiovascular system, bronchitis and emphysema. Tobacco is a cause of cancer whether it is smoked, chewed or consumed in other ways
