In I have and will continue to use the text to illustrate and teach my children. I have already discussed with them the downsides to using tobacco and smokeless tobacco inparticular, in part helped by the picture of a 17 year old boy who lost his jaw to cancer.
I definitely would recommend this text for someone looking for general health information.
My book did include the access code.
