To assess whether switching to modified tobacco products reduces the amount of tobacco-specific carcinogens in the body, scientists at the University of Minnesota
measured carcinogen uptake in smokers who were using either a “reduced exposure” tobacco product (Swedish snuff or the Omni cigarette)or medicinal nicotine. Those using
medicinal nicotine had greater reductions. Reductions of carcinogen uptake from modified cigarettes was modest at best.
