Quitting Smokeless Tobacco Has A Large Health Benefit

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) Quitting smokeless tobacco after a heart attack can cut a person's risk of dying early.  

The effect, according to new research from Sweden, is similar to the benefit of quitting cigarettes. The study authors examined the impact of quitting smokeless tobacco in nearly 24-hundred heart attack survivors.

Those who stopped using had nearly half the premature mortality risk.
