Nicotine in Society by Mode of Delivery – Framing relative appeal, addiction and toxicity

11:05 - 11:20

Tobacco- and nicotine-containing products have evolved considerably in terms of their modes of delivery and corresponding harm potential. When nicotine is delivered in combustible tobacco products (e.g., cigarettes, cigars), addiction and persistent use results in devastating consequences. Less clear are nicotine’s effects when delivered in non-combustible tobacco products and, most recently, in forms that are increasingly separated from toxic tobacco and combustion by-products. This session will review the evidence regarding nicotine’s risk in terms of cardiovascular diseases and cancers as well as risks for adolescent brain development and addiction, and discuss challenges to one-size-fits-all tobacco control approaches that do not take into account risk differences and nicotine delivery profiles among tobacco and nicotine-containing products.
