These findings are an important reminder that tobacco companies have a long history of manipulating their products in ways that make them more appealing, more addictive or more harmful. They also underscore why the Food and Drug Administration must aggressively exercise its new authority over tobacco products, including the authority to stop such tobacco industry manipulation that harms public health.Tobacco use kills more than 400,000 Americans and costs the nation $96 billion in health care bills each year. While the U.S. has made significant progress in reducing smoking, these studies remind us that there is still much work to do to win the fight against the nation's number one cause of preventable death.
