Wet snuff against Cancer

Once again, a scientific report, this time ordered by the European Parliament, has concluded that the unique Swedish wet snuff – “snus” – does not cause cancer.

Nonetheless, it’s still prohibited in all of the EU except Sweden. Hence smokers, who are trying to get off the habit are barred from a virtually risk free substitute.

Hooray for Swedish MEP Fjellner, who not only campaigns against the prohibition, but also sells the stuff from his office. According to rumour, it’s also very popular among his fellow parliamentarians.
