Commonly referred to as snuff or chew, smokeless tobacco contains 28 known cancer-causing agents, and like many other tobacco products, contains highly addictive nicotine to hook users after just one use. Especially popular among athletes, smokeless tobacco is another tobacco product that has been heavily marketed by tobacco companies in a very manipulative way. According to the Center for Disease Control, the five biggest smokeless tobacco manufacturers spent over $576 million on smokeless tobacco advertising and promotion in 2019 alone. The advertisements are made to tell unsuspecting consumers how good it is, and that is the crux of the problem. Because of the celebrity athlete appeal of chewing tobacco, impressionable youth are particularly susceptible to using and becoming addicted to chewing at a very early age. If you have been injured or lost a loved one because of smokeless tobacco use, you should consider filing a lawsuit with the highly experienced team at Alvarez Law Firm. Call now to learn more.
