Tobacco and Nicotine Products: The Times They Are A’Changing

Tobacco and Nicotine Products: The Times They Are A’Changing (ce606) - Introduction
Introduction – Tobacco & Nicotine Products

The use of tobacco and its byproducts stems back to over 5,000 B.C. Over time, we have found that these products are highly addictive and cause numerous serious health problems to those who use them. Given the devastation that tobacco use has caused, the tobacco industry has been forced since the 1960s and 70s to try to find ways to get the consumers of their products to switch to those that are less harmful. There have been many iterations of tobacco harm reduction over the years, with the latest being e-cigarettes and now heat-not-burn products. This course will help provide the needed knowledge to help understand how we got to the present dilemma we face as a society with these products and where we may be going to undo the damage done.
