Stub­bing out the smok­ing habit

The Hindu Business Line - - PULSE -

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.
