Swedish snus much safer than smoking but linked to pancreatic cancer

users.

The authors say: "Our finding is at odds with the perception that use of Swedish moist snus has no demonstrable carcinogenic risk.

"If valid, it will have important public health implications, since snus has been proposed as a way to reduce harm in nicotine addicts."

In an accompanying comment, Dr Jonathan Foulds, Tobacco Dependence Program, University of Medicine and Dentistry, New Jersey School of Public Health, USA, says: "The papers in the Lancet, when added to mounting epidemiological evidence, indicate that we should not delay in allowing snus to compete with cigarettes for market share, and we should be prepared to accurately inform smokers about the relative risks of cigarettes, snus, and approved smoking-cessation medications.

"In light of all the available evidence, the banning or exaggerated opposition to snus in cigarette-rife environments is not sound public health policy."
