Abstract In recent times, rates of consumption of smokeless tobacco have increased significantly amongst specific subgroups of men, particularly young college men. Recent increases in smokeless tobacco consumption have been characterized by a shift from chewing tobacco to moist snuff. In addition to laying out the health risks of moist snuff, this article describes the social and gendered meanings of smokeless tobacco that reinforce its use. Men-centered approaches to raising awareness about the connections between moist snuff and oral cancer and the availability of oral cancer screening are highlighted as 2 key nursing practice considerations.
