Smokeless Tobacco Side Effects. Healthwise, is smokeless tobacco safer than smoked tobacco? Is tobacco less dangerous to your body if you don’t smoke it and, instead, take it in through other ways? Is Ashton Kutcher — who was spotted by the paparazzi buying snuff — less likely to develop cancer if he uses snuff rather than cigarettes?
Apparently, smokeless tobacco is not safe at all. It can still give you cancer (oral, esophageal, and pancreatic). Smokeless tobacco can also cause heart disease, gum disease, and oral lesions such as leukoplakia.
