All snuff uses either fiberglass or sand, so if you're just adding more into a package it won't make any difference I wouldn't think. If you washed it out, it would probably be fine.I don't neg/infract/ban if you disagree with me in a civil discussion on any topic. I don't claim to be an expert on any subject and can always be proven wrong. But good luck trying ;)

It dosn't say right on the label. If you search online for those anti tobacco sites they'll show you how it works. Basically the fiberglass cuts your gums so the niccotene (sp?) can get to your blood stream.

There's no fiberglass in dip thats just bs made up by anti-tobacco organizations to scare people. Like honestly think about it, if there was fiberglass in dip your lip would be cut to pieces afterwards and bleeding like crazy and it would imbed in your lip and then hurt all the time. I live in Canada and they love to throw nasty pictures and warnings on the packs and cans. If there was really fiberglass in dip I'm pretty sure they'd love to tell me that on the side of the can on the warning, but none of them do say that, why? Because they'd be lying if they said so. Your gums are a membrane which can absorb substances without being cut up. If you want to use this logic then all of those creams and ointments the doctor prescribes you to rub on your skin must be full of fiberglass to cut up your skin so that it can absorb the medicine. The fact is that your skin can, and your gums even more so can absorb chemicals. Note the link posted was from anti-tobacco legislation, Smoke free @ Yale lol. These are also the people that say if you smoke one cigarette a day your guaranteed to die. Studies have shown that on average smoking only reduces lifespawn by approximately 5 years. I'm not advocating smoking or chewing at all. But just get the facts straight. If you smoke a pack a day or dip a can everyday, yeah you're going down. But if you have an occassional smoke or dip and eat healthy and exercise regularly you aren't going to die. If you dip, rinse after your done, brush your teeth twice a day and use Biotene mouthwash. Remember, moderation is the key, addiction is for those with weak will.
If anyone can post a credible scientific link which states that smokeless tobacco contains fiberglass then prove me wrong, but I'd bet the farm that such a site doesn't exist. The only ones you can find will have in little writing in the side something like "a message from a tobacco-free america" or something like that.
