Program Urges Smokers Switch to Smokeless Tobacco

In the smoker-heavy state of Kentucky, a cancer center is suggesting something that most health experts won't and the tobacco industry can't: If you really want to quit, switch to smoke-free tobacco. The James Graham Brown Cancer Center and the University of Louisville are aiming their new "Switch and Quit" campaign at the city of Owensboro. It urges smokers to swap their cigarettes for smokeless tobacco and other products that don’t deliver nicotine by smoke.
