Nicotine: New Zealand versus Australia

By

Who loses in the contest to 'suck' more nicotine into their lungs from their cigarettes: Australian or New Zealand smokers? A research study crowns the big loser.

 


Researchers at the British American Tobacco company tested fifteen different brands of cigarettes in eight different countries.

In fact, they checked out about 80,000 cigarette butts in each country.

The conclusion of the study was published in the journal of Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology.

The researchers found that Australian smokers 'sucked up' 1.36 milligrams of nicotine, on average, from each cigarette they smoked.

On the New Zealand side, the study found that they puffed into their lungs 1.62 milligrams of nicotine from an average cigarette.

New Zealand wins, well, not really because nicotine is an addictive and very harmful substance found in cigarettes.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald article 'NZ sucks more nicotine than Aussies,' there are several reasons why New Zealanders puff in more nicotine per average cigarette than Australian smokers.

Murray Laugesen, a local public health specialist and researcher who specializes in health, smoking policy, and the use of cigarettes, suggested in the SMH article that it ''¦ could be because Australians preferred lower-nicotine brands or because Kiwis may be 'sucking cigarettes more intensively'.'

The article added, 'The study also found New Zealand smokers were exposed to the greatest average amount of tar out of 5703 smokers in eight countries.'
