There is sufficient evidence that chewing tobacco and other products of similar toxicity cause excess risk of oral and oesophageal cancer
2019-10-23 11:28
yea ik bout all that cancer stuff but i only care if it kills my gains

Czech Republic y0fl0w Snus use was independently associated with increased risk of pancreatic cancer (relative risk for ever-users of snus 2.0; 95% CI 1.2-3.3, compared with never-users of any tobacco), but was unrelated to incidence of oral (0.8, 95% CI 0.4-1.7) and lung cancer (0.8, 0.5-1.3). Our results on smokeless tobacco use are in broad agreement with a recently published meta-analysis of all published data on the issue, which reported no excess risk of pancreatic cancer in case–control studies [9]. They are, however, at variance with those from another meta-analysis [5], based mainly on data from two Nordic cohort studies [7, 8], which suggested that smokeless tobacco is associated with an increased risk of pancreatic cancer. There are at least an additional case–control [27] and a cohort study [28] from the United States, showing RRs for smokeless tobacco above unity, of borderline significance. The difference in effects between our pooled analysis and the two Nordic countries may be due to differences in smokeless tobacco products used in the populations considered. Moreover, the apparent inconsistency between our findings and those from Nordic cohorts may be due to the absence of adjustment of estimates in the Nordic studies for most of the covariates allowed for in the present analyses. A US study included in our pooled analysis—despite the absence of an overall association—found an excess risk for subjects consuming >2.5 ounces/week of smokeless tobacco [14], while there was no evidence of an excess risk for higher use in the remaining studies providing information on dose. Although the present results for smokeless tobacco can be due to the low frequency of smokeless tobacco in populations other than Nordic countries, the present data suggest the absence of any dose–risk relation with smokeless tobacco. Further, we were able to allow for study design variables and major identified possible confounding factors, including ethnicity, education, BMI, diabetes and alcohol consumption [29], and to estimate the risk of smokeless tobacco use in lifelong nonsmokers, thus minimizing any possible bias due to residual confounding. which sufficient evidence are you talking about? btw snus != chewing tobacco
2019-10-23 13:38 "We present a case series of patients with oral squamous cell carcinomas diagnosed at the sites where the patients had used Swedish snuff for several years." "Snus (nass) is a form of snuff used in a similar manner to American dipping tobacco, but it does not typically result in a need for spitting.[...] users have risks of cancer several times higher than those of nonsmokers... very strongly correlated with cancers of the cheek and gums."

1. All 16 patients in this case series were male and all were diagnosed with OSCC (Table I). The mean age at the time of cancer diagnosis (N=16) was 72.9 years (range: 48-91 years) and the median age was 75 years. The mean duration of snuff use prior to cancer diagnosis (15 cases) was 42.9 years (range: 8-71 years) and the median duration of snuff use prior to cancer diagnosis was 42 years. Ten of the patients had used oral snuff only and had no history of smoking. Five cases had a history of smoking but at the time of cancer diagnosis used snuff only. Three of the ex-smokers had ceased smoking more than 20 years earlier and the other two had stopped smoking 4 and 18 years prior to diagnosis. One patient used both snuff and smoking tobacco at the time of diagnosis. The mean age of starting snuff use was 30.4 years (median 30 years). can't be serious, 16 patients, 5 ex-smokers, 1 active smoker 2. 4 cases yes, interesting articles but how does that prove in any way the risk for these types of cancer increases if someone consuming snus
2019-10-23 15:58
It is not significant evidence, but it is not positive news either. But they all have cell carcinomas where they kept snus. "oral squamous cell carcinomas diagnosed at the sites where the patients had used Swedish snuff for several years." A problem imho. with snus research in general is that most snus users also smoke cigarettes quite often and cigars, because nicotine addiction is real.

yeah that's right. Same for me. Snus on a daily basis, cigarettes when drinking at weekends
2019-10-23 16:09

2019-10-23 13:34

slows down hypertrophy just like tobacco, weed and alcohol lower oxygen levels in blood - muscle cells dont get as much nutrients - less muscle growth
2019-10-23 13:28
yea i heard alcohol does that but i rarely drink. think i need to stop

it only affects performance in the gym since nicotine restricts blood vessels which means less oxygen flow to the muscles, not a doctor tho, dont do snus a couple of hours before going to the gym and you are good mate
2019-10-23 13:33
i need to experiment with this
2019-10-23 13:38

2019-10-23 17:08

Chemically speaking, snus shares many similarities with amino acids. Your body can produce it from the amino acids glycine and arginine. Several factors affect your body's snus stores, including meat intake, exercise, amount of muscle mass and levels of hormones like testosterone and IGF-1 About 95% of your body's snus is stored in muscles in the form of phosphocreatine. The other 5% is found in your brain, kidneys and liver When you supplement, you increase your stores of phosphocreatine. This is a form of stored energy in the cells, as it helps your body produce more of a high-energy molecule called ATP. ATP is often called the body's energy currency. When you have more ATP, your body can perform better during exercise Snus also alters several cellular processes that lead to increased muscle mass, strength and recovery

Is this actual facts or broscience
