snus from a female point of view

No more snus in the EU, but Makla??

Hope you don't get tired of me talking about the EU snus ban. Just received this newsletter:

EU CUSTOMERS FIGHT FOR SNUS - DRAMATIC EVENT IN SWEDEN TOOK PLACE MARCH 22ND
On the March 22nd the Swedish Custom stormed one of our competitor office and closed down the website. The two Swedish owners; one women, mother of two six year old twins and one retired man undergoing treatment for skin cancer is now facing prison for up to six years for selling Snus from Sweden to another EU country. 

Take a look at the two products below, can you see the difference? The first one is "Snus" which is illegal in EU and the other "Makla" is legal.
Don't you think it's strange the way EU handle tobacco products? Snus is 98% safer than smoking and five times less harmful than Makla.   

Make a difference today! help yourself and the two persons avoiding prison for a product that should be legal in the EU by contacting your EU commissioner http://www.europarl.europa.eu/members/expert/groupAndCountry.do?language=EN and/or the EU Health Minister, John Dalli http://ec.europa.eu/commission_2010-2014/dalli/contact_en.htm.



I'm contacting them immediately...

    Careful with that or they will ban Makla too.

    The thing is: the EU Snus ban is so ridiculous the only possible explanation is: "it is not about health". This ban has probably killed more people than all the second-hand smoke in the world.

    I'm pretty sure the making and packaging of African/Belgian makla is not regulated the way Swedish snus is (e.g. Gothiatek). And much like Asian naswar, "American SNUS" and Sudanese toombak, the ingredients are a mystery. There appears to be a large body of hard science linking makla, naswar and toombak with cancer, and that has to do with fermentation and nitrosamines, amongst other things.

  6. No it is not. There is a ban on all tobacco products not intended to be smoked (cigarettes) or chewed (chewing tobacco.
