FDA Proposed Cutting Nicotine Level In US Cigarettes

The FDA has had the power since 2009 to regulate nicotine levels but hasn't done so. Tar and other substances inhaled through smoking make cigarettes deadly, but the nicotine in tobacco is what makes them addictive. Smoking rates, though, have been falling for decades and are at about 15 percent. Donny and other researchers found that reducing nicotine substantially - by around 90 percent - leads to smokers being less dependent on cigarettes and smoking fewer of them.

The Food and Drug Administration has announced it's exploring ways to lower the level of nicotine in cigarettes.

An e-cigarette is a battery powered device which turns liquid nicotine in vapors that are inhalable. "Most of the harm associated with smoking is related not to the nicotine but everything else in the smoke".

Dr Catherine Best, Research Fellow at the University of Stirling, said: "Our findings are broadly similar to those from eight other United States studies; however, this is the first study to report from the UK". Kenneth Warner, a retired University of MI public health professor who is a leading authority on smoking and health, said he was pleasantly surprised to learn of the FDA announcement. Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids president Matthew Myers praised the overall approach as "a bold and comprehensive vision" but called the e-cigarettes delay "a serious error".

Sally Haw, Professor of Public and Population Health at Stirling, added: "The greater impact of e-cigarette use on young people thought to be at lower risk of starting smoking is of particular concern".

Altria Group, the company which sells cigarettes in the U.S, such as Marlboro and even e-cigarettes, stated that it will follow the FDA rules and that if the department will base their decision on science and evidence, then they will go along as long as it is achievable from a technical point of view. He said the FDA will "seriously consider" new data relevant to how premium cigars should be regulated.
