Formatted abstract
Cigarette smokers are poorly informed about the relative harmfulness of tobacco and nicotine products. Smokers greatly overestimate the risks of using pharmaceutical nicotine and smokeless tobacco (SLT) and underestimate the risks of ‘light’ or ‘lowtar’ cigarettes.

It should not be beyond human ingenuity to use regulation to separate the markets for smoked and smokeless tobacco products, by requiring tobacco companies that market LNSLT products to phase out the production and sale of smoked tobacco products over a period of 10–15 years. More ambitiously, we could encourage all tobacco companies to abandon the production of cigarettes in favour of non-smoked nicotine products, such as LNSLT and clean pharmaceutiucal nicotine products by regulation and controls that make smoked tobacco products unattractive to market.
