Cancer risk of nicotine gum and lozenges ...

Nicotine chewing gum, lozenges and inhalers designed to help people to give up smoking may have the potential to cause cancer, research has suggested. A study led by Dr Muy-Teck Teh of Queen Mary University of London has found that the effects of a genetic mutation that is common in mouth cancer can be worsened by nicotine in the levels that are typically found in smoking cessation products.

Tobacco companies ... complete disregard for health ...

The Oral Cancer Foundation called for the U.S. Senate to grant the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authority over tobacco products in response to the tobacco industry's most aggressive marketing campaign targeted at women and girls in over a decade.

"The percentage of oral cancer patients represented by women has increased tremendously over the past four decades, and we believe the marketing efforts of the tobacco industry is a major causal factor," said Brian Hill, founder of the Oral Cancer Foundation. "Before Virginia Slims began aggressively targeting women in the 1960s, roughly one-in-ten oral cancer victims was female. Since then, the ratio has quintupled to one-in-two." Hill also noted that lung cancer surpassed breast cancer as the number one cancer killer of women in 1987, and that while overall cancer rates are declining for men and women, lung cancer is not declining among women. Moreover, smoking puts women and girls at greater risk of a wide range of other deadly diseases, including heart attacks, strokes and emphysema.

Hill cited "Deadly in Pink: Big Tobacco Steps Up Its Targeting of Women and Girls," a comprehensive report recently issued by the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, American Heart Association, American Lung Association, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. The report studied numerous tobacco marketing campaigns.

"In reading this report, three conclusions seem inescapable," said Hill. "First, the marketing campaigns of the leading tobacco companies have - unfortunately - been extremely effective. Second, the managements of these companies have a complete disregard for the health of the women and girls they are attempting to persuade to smoke their cigarettes. And third, the inability of these companies to voluntarily engage in safe and responsible behavior dictates that the FDA must be given authority to regulate their marketing activities."

In the U.S. alone, each year tobacco use kills more than 400,000 people and costs the nation $96 billion in health care. About 90 percent of adult smokers start in their teens or earlier. Every day, another 1,000 kids become regular smokers, and one-third of them will die prematurely as a result.
