Neshya tobacco through Nose.
Can we do it.
Carcinogensis Associated With Smokeless Tobacco Use
The Killer packed for use of unfortunate addicts.
I thought only my grandfather was doing it.
When I was a kid my grand father used to make Nesya ( a bit of fine tobacco powder mixed with fine chewing kind of lime by mixing both in a definite proportion on the palm of his hand and rubbing it to a smooth ball and pressing it to form a pumpkin seed size to be inserted at a side of the nose just above the bottom of the nostril so that the air that is inhaled goes in to create a effect such as a drug.I thought that this is the practice only in India.Even today I have not seen anyone stuffing Snuff ( Nesya a Kannada word for Snuff ) in to the nose and inhaling it.This practice has slowly gone and is replaced by Gutka another freely producing killer cancer in the mouth.A BAN on this Killer Gutka is pending as usual like many others in the supreme court.The Gutka Cartel is so strong in the country. that they can manage to stall or postpone the supreme court's proceedings by the rules provided in the law.This is nothing short of a scam to us the people.Snuff stuffing technique is so very popular not only in India but also elsewhere like Germany a country I cannot imagine is running a competition to stuff 5 Grams of Snuff in 1 minute and declare the man who does it as a World Champion.This was actually done on July 7,2012 in Peutenhausen in Southern Germany and 300 men and amazingly also women had participated. According to experts, the trick is not to have a big nose but rather intensive training and a sophisticated technique just to stuff snuff with 5 grams of in your nose.I only hope such things won't happen in India.Tobacco in any form other than cigarette is almost a private BAN in the country. In India people have come to understand the dangers of smoking,sniffing and chewing of tobacco.
RESEARCH TO CURE & SELLING TOBACOO TO SPREAD CANCER.
Snuff is smokes and is free from carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides as given in Wikipedia which can be written by any user. It may prevent lung cancer but not oral or nasal cancer deep down the nose.The use of tobacco in any form is a risk to one's health.In India Gutka a chewing Tobacco is used by most of the working youth especially construction workers,taxi drivers and even slum children.Gutka to a large extent has replaced Snuff though its use is prevalent as you cannot see a person having Snuff in his Nose. The users of Snuff usually stuff the Snuff unnoticed by any.I haven't seen any person using the killer tobacco Snuff.Men use Snuff more than Woman as per reports I have seen else where.In Kannada the meaning of Snuff is NESHYA. As a young boy I had seen my Grand Father taking this stuff and it was not our concern to ask why he was taking it.He was my mothers father and my mother hated him only for this bad habit and also she did not like my father smoking cigarette.She made me promise her that I will not smoke and to this day I do not smoke.But I fell for Chewing Tobacco when I was working in Mumbai as my colleague in the work place made me chew to give him company. I left it after noticing a white small lump on my throat and I knew it was not a good and left chewing it after the nicotine addiction center established by the govt showed me photographs as to what was waiting for me to enter my body and damage my organs and how it would look after it takes it room freely in my body.

The high absorption of Snuff through nostrils may avoid lung cancer and Snuff sniffers may be happy on that account.Snuff may be Eco friendly as it does not pollute the air.Non users will not be passive sniffers of Snuff like cigarettes which is not Eco Friendly and Non smokers are affected.This is no excuse for Snuff users as they have a fat chance of nasopharynx cancer since Snuff gets wet in the Nose sooner or later for this type of cancer.However survey's show intake from snuff is no greater than from smoking.
