Cigarettes with low nicotine content don´t increase number of smoked cigarettes
Fear of smokers that cigarettes with low nicotine content may make smoke them more, appeared to be groundless showed Canadian scientists.
Earlier have been voiced concerns that cigarettes with low nicotine content may increase intensity of the habit among smokers to satisfy nicotine craving.
But specialists from Waterloo University in Canada say that it is not true, informs Daily Mail.
During the research 72 of adult smokers have smoked their usual cigarettes during 7 days. Then three weeks in row they have smoked cigarettes with reduced nicotine content. And each week level of nicotine in cigarettes was reduced. Scientists have determined that during four weeks of research smokers have smoked the same quantity of cigarettes that were smoked every day.
This research shows that smokers don't compensate reduced nicotine content in cigarettes with increase of number of smoked cigarettes. As result, such cigarettes can be used for reducing nicotine content that the body gets.
