british american tobacco nigeria - Research Development

Tobacco consumption poses real and serious risks to health, so our research and development activities are principally focused on better understanding the harm caused by tobacco use and working to develop potentially less harmful products.

The science involved in this work is complex, extremely challenging and spans many scientific disciplines. We have significantly expanded our research capabilities over the past few years to reflect the importance we place on work in this area. We are also committed to seeking guidance from independent scientific and regulatory bodies

Some organisations concerned about smoking and health are sceptical about our approach and our motives, but some critics of the tobacco industry are now supporting the objective of being able to offer adult consumers a range of tobacco products both acceptable to them and recognised by independent scientists and regulators as posing reduced risks to health.
We also have a science website Opens in new window, written by scientists for scientists with an interest in tobacco-related research or related disciplines.
