The Data Doesn’t Support the FDA

The FDA recently proposed a possible ban on flavored cigars. This notice overlooks the recent acknowledgement by the FDA that there is a difference between premium cigars (and pipe tobacco) and other forms of tobacco. Handmade, long filler cigars - flavored or otherwise - do not attract underage smokers! The price point alone serves as a detriment to such purchases...

Tobacco Business recently ran an article about Swisher’s response to the FDA announcement. You should read it and read some of the research perpetuating unsubstantiated claims about cigar smoking.
