Perspective | Hints From Heloise: Spit cup is huge turnoff on blind date
As a nurse in a hospital, I’ve seen too many cases of men getting cancer of the mouth and tongue because they smoked or dipped. We lost a young man in his mid-20s who had been drinking snuff for 23 months. The cancer started in his mouth and spread until it killed him. The doctors wanted to remove much of his face, jaw and mouth, but he wouldn’t allow it until it was too late to save his life. Please warn your readers about this dangerous habit. It’s not cool or macho to dip or smoke, and women usually don’t like it when a man holds a spitting cup in his hand.
