    Nicotine-free tobacco products could be the answer to helping us achieve our Smokefree 2025 goal

    Nicotine-free tobacco products could be the answer to helping us achieve our Smokefree 2025 goal


    New research -- published in today's New Zealand Medical Journal -- has found the removal of nicotine could reduce smoking rates to well under five-percent by 2025.

    It projects one fifth of smokers would quit, if only nicotine-free cigarettes were allowed from next year.

    Otago University researcher Richard Edwards says the move would have a real impact on smokers, and those experimenting with smoking.
