Dangers of Smokeless Tobacco Among Teens
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expanding “The Real Cost” Smokeless Tobacco Prevention Campaign to motivate mainly white male teenagers in rural communities about the use of smokeless tobacco and its negative health consequences. Did you know that more than 2,600 youth under age 18 have already smoked their first cigarette, and nearly 1,300 youth have already used smokeless tobacco for the first time.
Smokeless tobacco includes different types of products, such as dip, chew and types of tobacco that dissolve when placed in the mouth, and the campaign is part of the FDA’s ongoing efforts to prevent at-risk youth from starting to use tobacco.
