I was reading up on snuff, and found a couple of pages about the health risks it poses. A lot of the usual findings and warnings, we all know that tobacco products are not good for us, but I kept finding references to a really weird case - the only case on record - of snuff actually causing cancer... because the guy put it in his ear for 42 years.

Kaiser suggested I post some links, I cant find the source file, but its referenced in a few different places and the details don't all match, but its interesting.

That is awesome...but why the heck would anyone put snuff in their ear? I just don't understand, you might get the nic hit but you don't get any of the flavors which is the best part of snuff and pipes. Thanks for the pics and links brother, very interesting.

Thanks kaiser for a good read and a trip down memory lane to my youth.
