You don't need to smoke tobacco for it to be dangerous

Chewing tobacco is one of the oldest methods of consuming tobacco. And even as American society has clamped down on the use of cigarettes, the various forms of smokeless tobacco on the market don't get nearly as much attention. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care,"  hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen interview Dr. David Pfister, chief of the Head and Neck Oncology Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City about why this kind of tobacco is so dangerous.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness snow this Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
