24 02 2018
BETHESDA, Md., Feb. 24, 2018 -- A new study reveals that most adults hold beliefs about the harms from nicotine that are opposite from what scientists have concluded. The findings, presented at the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco 24th Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland, highlight the need to correct misperceptions about the harmfulness of nicotine so that adults can make informed decisions about use of nicotine-containing and lower risk tobacco products.
Nicotine is present in combustible cigarettes, e-cigarettes and FDA-approved nicotine replacement therapies used to help smokers stop smoking. The FDA and other authorities have concluded that there is a continuum of risk for nicotine and tobacco products, with combustible cigarettes by far the most hazardous and nicotine replacement therapies as the least hazardous. To examine adults' knowledge of tobacco and nicotine harmfulness, researchers analyzed data from 1,736 US adults in the government-run 2017 Health...
