Surveillance of Emerging Tobacco Products

The consumer tobacco marketplace is rapidly evolving. In the last 10 years alone, the popularity of e-cigarettes has risen and multiple new products have been introduced, including non-combusted (heat-not-burn) cigarettes and tobacco-less nicotine pouch products. Little is known about how these new products affect long-term health effects for individuals and the public.

Our Research Focus

The American Cancer Society (ACS) Tobacco Control Research (TCR) team studies:

  • Sales of emerging tobacco products
  • The impact new product sales have on other concurrently available tobacco products (such as cigarettes)
  • Public awareness and perceptions of the health risks of emerging tobacco products
