Did Chewing Tobacco Kill Tony Gwynn?

Keith Olbermann is a blowhard. By his logic we should stop pitchers from throwing because Dave Dravecky had a cancerous desmoid tumor in his left arm. THE SAME ARM HE PITCHED WITH!

Gwynn cancer-related death is a tragedy. Linking that tragedy to smokeless tobacco (a repugnant product) with no evidence is just exploitation.
