Reducing Nicotine in Cigarettes

FDA announced that they plan to reduce the amount of nicotine found in cigarettes.

 

The Food and Drug Administration announced that they want to significantly reduce the amount of nicotine in cigarettes.

They hope that this will help smokers break this deadly habit.

In efforts to prevent Americans from deadly diseases caused by cigarettes, they’re hoping this opens the eyes of tobacco consumers.

Smoking cigarettes kill more than 480,000 Americans every single year.

FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said that, “Given their combination of toxicity, addictiveness, prevalence, and effect on non-users, it's clear that to maximize the possible public health benefits of our regulation, we must focus our efforts on the death and disease caused by addiction to combustible cigarettes.”

Conventional cigarettes contain around 1.1 to 1.7 milligrams of nicotine according to data from the FDA.  They want to bring down the nicotine level to around 0.4 milligrams. This could aid in 5 million adult smokers to quit smoking.

Some concerns include people inhaling more smoke to make up for the lack of nicotine and smokers smoking more cigarettes.

In the future we do hope that more and more people smoke fewer cigarettes.  They are extremely harmful to your health and increase the cost of health insurance and life insurance plans.
