http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17498798

"FINDINGS:
There was little difference in health-adjusted life expectancy between smokers who quit all tobacco and smokers who switch to snus (difference of 0.1-0.3 years for men and 0.1-0.4 years for women). For net harm to occur, 14-25 ex-smokers would have to start using snus to offset the health gain from every smoker who switched to snus rather than continuing to smoke. Likewise, 14-25 people who have never smoked would need to start using snus to offset the health gain from every new tobacco user who used snus rather than smoking."

From the Washington Post. Now it official Snus is better than smoking. The James Graham Brown Cancer Center and the University of Louisville are launched a new “Switch and Quit” campaign calling on smokers to use smokeless tobacco instead.

It's because of the salt and ph balance.

I would actually go as far as saying snus is good for dental health. It's not the best for the gums, but snus balances the PH in the mouth to a more alkaline level; making the teeth less prone to cavities and other problems. I also imagine the small amount of salt has some anti-septic properties - together with the antioxidants in the tobacco (more than green tea).

Although, I'm not the first one to come to this conclusion. Since day one of starting snusing, cavities which prior to snusing haunted me every visit to the dentist has not bothered me once (5-6 years now).

"Study: No deaths related to snus.

SCIENCE. A new study published in the journal The Lancet notes that snus does not lead to increased mortality in humans, writes several newspapers.

The new research, conducted at the International Global Burden of Disease, will be the first time someone has examined the number of deaths associated with tobacco product snus.

The result is striking. The researchers have not been able to find a single death related to snus.

This compares with 883,000 deaths from passive smoking and 6.3 million dead due to smoking in 2016.

The study also believes that there is no evidence that the risk of disease, such as pancreatic cancer, increases when using snuff.

"For us who have been following the research on snuff in the last ten years, it's not surprising," says Karl Erik Lund, head of the tobacco ban at the Norwegian Public Health Institute in Norway, at Forskning.no.

But research does not totally agree with the issue of snus danger.

Another study at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim from 2016 revealed that blood cats with snusers are affected more than you thought, Aftonbladet points out.""
