Public Health, Science & Research
Tobacco products are harmful yet widely used consumer products that are responsible for severe health problems in both users and non-users. These health problems include cancer, lung disease, and heart disease, which often lead to death.
New regulations have allowed us to establish science and research programs that will help us better understand the risks associated with tobacco use so that we can reduce the public health burden of tobacco in the United States.
