Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — entry @ 16:30PM

Scientists in Västerbotten have recently completed a study in order to determine whether snuff has any connetion with heart problems.They compared 525 men who had had heart attacks with 1700 healthy men.

Among the snuff users who had never smokes they found no increased risk of heart attacks. However, among the snuff users that previously had been smokers there was a slight increase.

This is the fifth study that shows NO CONNECTION between Swedish snuff and heart problems. One study made in 1994 did however show a connection.

Swedish snuff has been banned in all other Northern countries, except for Norway. Denmark and Finland does not sell Swedish snuff at all.
