not so sure about that, smoking may give you lung cancer in 30 years or whatever, but dip could put you in the hospital having mouth surgery in just a few years, coming from someone whos done both, dip can be much more dangerous short term, be very carefull

Smokeless tobacco and oral cancer: a review of the risks and determinants.
Rodu B, Jansson C.
The available epidemiologic studies indicate that the use of
chewing tobacco and American moist snuff is associated with
minimal risk for oral cancer, while the use of Swedish moist
snuff is associated with no demonstrable risk. In comparison,
some studies have reported elevated risks for dry snuff use,
and these studies may have influenced the perception of the
entire SLT category in past evaluations. For example, in 1986
the US Congress passed the Comprehensive Smokeless
Tobacco Education Act, which mandated placement of an oral
cancer warning on all SLT products. One year later, IARC classified SLT products as carcinogenic to humans, based almost
entirely on epidemiologic studies. In the 17 years since these
two actions occurred, the number of relevant epidemiologic
studies has nearly doubled. The new body of epidemiologic
evidence suggests that these actions may now be seen as too
broad. It may be time for these agencies to re-examine the issue
of the risks of specific forms of SLT use.
