Can you get cancer from using smokeless tobacco or cigarettes only a few times or does the cancer happen more as a result of the building up of the harmful chemicals in your body?
The consensus is smokeless tobacco can be just as harmful as smoking tobacco. It isn't fully understood how much worse or if at all. What causes the cancer from smoking is the carcinogen's. It doesn't matter if smoke comes from a burning house, campfire or a cigarette, there is always a chance of dying when you inhale it, Tobacco companies add chemicals like pesticides and other additives to make it taste different. Nicotine, which is the main ingredient in all cigarettes, produces the nicotine buzz and is highly addictive. Smoking a cigarette or two will not cause you much harm, but if you continue to smoke cigarettes the addiction begins to set in. This will continue to grow until your body become dependant on the nicotine intake. This will increase your chances of getting cancer and other diseases.

Is chewing tobacco safer than smoking?
While the available evidence shows that smokeless tobacco may be less dangerous than cigarettes are, long-term use of chewing tobacco and other smokeless tobacco products can cause serious health problems. That's because they can contain about 30 cancer-causing substances. Like cigarettes, smokeless tobacco also contains nicotine, which can cause you to become addicted. Addiction Because smokeless tobacco contains nicotine, you can get addicted, just as you can with cigarettes and other tobacco products. Your body may actually absorb more nicotine from chewing tobacco or snuff than it does from a cigarette. Just as with smoking, withdrawal from smokeless tobacco causes signs and symptoms such as intense cravings, increased appetite, irritability and depressed mood. Also, over time, you develop a tolerance for the nicotine in chewing tobacco and other smokeless tobacco products, and you need more to feel the desired effects. This may lead you to dangerous habits - using brands with more nicotine, using more often, leaving chew in your mouth overnight and swallowing tobacco juices. Cancer Your risk of certain types of cancer increases if you use chewing tobacco or other types of smokeless tobacco. This includes esophageal cancer and various types of oral cancer, including cancers of your mouth, throat, cheek, gums, lips and tongue. Surgery to remove cancer from any of these areas can leave your jaw, chin, neck or face disfigured, and the cancer may be life-threatening. You also face increased risks related to pancreatic cancer and kidney cancer. Cavities Chewing tobacco and other forms of smokeless tobacco cause tooth decay. That's because chewing tobacco contains high amounts of sugar, which contributes to cavities. Chewing tobacco also contains coarse particles that can irritate your gums and scratch away at the enamel on your teeth, making your teeth more vulnerable to cavities. Gum disease The sugar and irritants in chewing tobacco and other forms of smokeless tobacco can cause your gums to pull away from your teeth in the area of your mouth where you place the chew. Over time you can develop gum disease (gingivitis), which can lead to periodontitis and tooth loss. And like cigarettes, chewing tobacco and other smokeless products can stain your teeth and cause bad breath. Heart disease Smokeless tobacco increases your heart rate and blood pressure. Some evidence suggests that long-term use of smokeless tobacco increases your risk of dying of certain types of heart disease and stroke. Precancerous mouth lesions Smokeless tobacco increases your risk of developing small white patches called leukoplakia (loo-ko-PLAY-kee-uh) inside your mouth where the chew is most often placed. These mouth lesions are precancerous - meaning that the lesions could one day become cancer. If you stop using smokeless tobacco products, the lesions usually go away within a few months.
Asked in Marijuana, Cigarettes
Is a cannabis cigarette worse than a normal one?
Actually, what we have to look at is how many chemicals are concentrated within the two subjects. Regular cigarettes have tobacco and nicotine and it's natural chemicals to start off with; however, they are also processed in a plant that adds many more chemicals to what the biology and chemistry of the plant have already built up within itself. Marijuana doesn't go through all of this, it is simply grown, cropped, and cultivated into the fine buds many stoner's like to enjoy. This doesn't fully answer the question how many chemicals are within each subject. Furthermore how many of those chemicals are toxic. In cigarettes there are over 4000 chemicals when it is being smoked, out of all of those chemicals 50 of them are carcinogenic. Some of these carcinogens include, cyanide, ammonia, arsenic, along with some other heavy metals. In a marijuana cigarette it is unknown exactly how many carcinogens there actually are. The studies have been limited in studying cannabis. The health organizations will often say that there are up to 50 to 70 percent more carcinogens in marijuana; however, they have not stated what those chemicals are and how many of them belong to the plant. In my opinion, I don't think either to be healthy; however, with that being said, I think that I would have to choose marijuana as being better. I say this only because I know that cigarettes have some nasty chemicals that weren't there until they were produced in a factory. A factory that has all kinds of nasty chemicals. It just doesn't sound that good to me. As far as marijuana goes it's pretty much ready right outside your back door along with moms garden.

Asked in Health
Why is smoking in public dangerous to non smokers?
Passive smoking is the involuntary inhalation of smoke, called secondhand smoke (SHS) or environmental tobacco smoke (ETS), from tobacco products. It occurs when tobacco smoke permeates any environment, causing its inhalation by people within that environment. Scientific evidence shows that exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke causes disease, disability, and death. Research has generated scientific evidence that secondhand smoke (that is, in the case of cigarettes, a mixture of smoke released from the smoldering end of the cigarette and smoke exhaled by the smoker) causes the same problems as direct smoking, including cardiovascular disease, lung cancer, and lung ailments such bronchitis and asthma attacks. -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passive_smoking-
