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.
