Does chewing tobacco have the same chemicals as cigarettes?

    Indeed it does. A lot of the harmful chemicals in cigarette tobacco are residue from fertilizers, and those can be found in most any sort of tobacco. In addition, both forms contain such dangerous chemicals as nicotime, cadmium, formaldehyde, and lead. Chewing tobacco also has been shown to expose the consumer to more polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which are carcinogens, in one pinch than in 5 cigarettes. Chewing tobacco is also just as likely to give you cancer as cigarettes, although it’s usually mouth cancer rather than lung cancer.

    Cigarettes and smokeless tobacco share similar chemicals to make their product addicting and harmful. These chemicals include: arsenic, nicotine, insecticides, formaldehyde, and benzene and many others. Though they share similar chemicals, each product varies its poisons to ensure product “quality” and customer satisfaction.
