Candy-like tobacco products: Poisoning is not the only risk
from U.S. News & World Report
Tobacco products that look and taste like candy, -- and have poisoned thousands of children who mistake them for sweet treats -- are just the latest in a long line of tobacco goods that appeal to children. The threat they pose to children is not only poisoning but also an increased risk of addiction. Smokeless tobacco products poisoned 1,768 children ages 6 and younger between 2006 and 2008, researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health reported this month in Pediatrics.
