Stubbing out the smoking habit
Cigarette smoking has reached the lowest level ever recorded among US adults, according to new data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the National Institutes of Health’s National Cancer Institute (NCI). Still, about 47 million (1 in 5) US adults used a tobacco product in 2017, and they used a variety of smoked, smokeless, and electronic tobacco products.
Meanwhile, the tobacco product landscape has changed in recent years to include newly developed products. In 2017, cigarettes were the most commonly used product among US adults, followed by cigars, cigarillos, or filtered little cigars; e-cigarettes; smokeless tobacco; and pipes, water pipes, or hookahs.
