Smoking and Tobacco
Nicotine and tar levels
Hi, I would like to know if there's any internet site or organization I can contact about getting the nicotine and tar levels of cigarettes. Is there any way to acquire a compilation of these levels for the many different cigarette brands out there?
Unfortunately, there is currently no listing of cigarette ingredients that has been published for the various cigarette brands. The best way to obtain this information is to contact the individual companies for their list of ingredients.
By law, tobacco companies may soon be required to provide this information on cigarette packages.
