A Statement from GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare on FDA Regulation of Smokeless Tobacco Products
Date:9/27/2010

ly.  Smokeless tobacco products are currently being marketed without clear evidence of their safety.

NRT products alternatively, have helped millions of people around the world quit smoking and, as a result, have significantly reduced their exposure to the risks of cancer and other smoking-related diseases.(3)  GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare believes that before considering a potential role for oral dissolvable tobacco products in reducing the adverse health effects of smoking, there are significant opportunities to enhance the impact of existing smoking cessation aids, including expanding access to and use of NRT products. While the FDA is the final authority on the labeling of NRT products sold in the U.S., GSK Consumer Healthcare is committed to continuing to work with medical and clinical experts, and the FDA, to ensure that consumers have the best possible chance to quit smoking.

Quitting smoking is the single most important step smokers can take to improve their health – and it's also one of the most difficult.  By developing innovative new products and support systems to improve the quit experience, and helping to make the products as accessible as possible, GSK Consumer Healthcare works to inspire and enable every smoker to quit for good.
