Calling chewing and dipping tobacco “smokeless” makes this deadly substance sound as if it is safer than smoking. This documentary-style program shows viewers that the nasty habit of dipping or chewing tobacco actually kills young people. Along with powerful testimonials from athletes, Spit Tobacco Kills follows the case of 27-year-old Rick Bender, a former user of smokeless tobacco whose cancer of the neck has left his face permanently disfigured. The video also focuses on discussions with kids who are addicted to spit tobacco. Hard-hitting and honest, this program aims to convince viewers that tobacco is deadly, no matter how you use it.
