Welcome to TobaccoFindings.org

TobaccoFindings.org is a joint initiative by LiQuSa-research (previous health and tobacco studies at FSI) and the Institute for Tobacco Studies (ITS), Sweden.

The purpose of TobaccoFindings.org is to facilitate access to findings from our research and from other studies in related fields of tobacco science, such as tobacco use behaviours, attitudes toward tobacco and tobacco use, tobacco initiation and tobacco cessation patterns, policy implications etc. The goal is not to provide a comprehensive picture of research on tobacco but to contribute to a balanced debate in areas that are of interest to researchers and policy makers.
