Five flavors of tobacco-free tobacco are now available in pharmacies, which are considered safer than smoking, as a result of a study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The results of the study found that nicotine-free products have reduced the risk of lung cancer, cardiovascular disease and stroke.
These include products from nicotine-containing brands like Nicorette, Nicoretts and Nicorettas, as well as flavored tobacco products like Nicerato and T-Max.
The new findings have been hailed by the nicotine-control community as proof that cigarettes and nicotine are no longer as addictive as we once thought.
But what’s the science behind the claim that nicotine is no longer addictive?
In a nutshell, the FDA said the new study did not show that smoking causes cancer or that nicotine can cause cardiovascular disease.
The study did show that people who used the products reported lower levels of cigarette smoke than those who did not use nicotine-based products.
Nicotine-free smoking products do have a long history, dating back to the 1970s, but it was only in the 1990s that people began to realize that smoking can cause cancer and other serious diseases.
Nicorette has been using nicotine-less tobacco products since 2009, according to the company.
Nicole Hockett, a research fellow at the National Cancer Institute, told Axios that nicotine could help prevent cancers from developing in the first place.
“Nicotine can act as an anti-inflammatory,” she said.
“It reduces inflammation in the colon and can also help reduce pain, nausea and vomiting.
This is an anti inflammatory agent, which is why we have so many products that are designed to treat cancer.”
Hockett added that the nicotine in these products could help keep the body from getting rid of toxins like carbon monoxide and nitrous oxide, which can contribute to lung cancer.
Nicaragua’s president, Daniel Ortega, was also among those who welcomed the news that nicotine products are no more addictive than cigarettes.
“This is a great news,” he said.
“It means we can be more environmentally conscious and be able to make our country cleaner, and we have the opportunity to save the planet.”
Nicotine is also known as the chemical used in tobacco smoke.
It has been linked to a number of serious diseases, including lung cancer and coronary artery disease.
