Smoking and health

People smoke for pleasure, but there are real risks that come with that pleasure. Smoking is a cause of serious diseases, including lung cancer, coronary heart disease, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis. These risks distinguish tobacco from most consumer goods and place a particular responsibility upon us, our industry, and public authorities.

The JT Group is committed to being transparent about the health risks of smoking. We do this by providing consumers with the right information to help them make informed decisions on whether or not to smoke. We monitor regulatory changes, and prepare for the implementation of those changes well in advance. We also subject all of our ingredients to toxicological assessments, in line with stipulated requirements.

Our positions on smoking and health are available on our websites, as are the lists of ingredients we use in our products.
