NCI’s Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences has launched a new menthol and tobacco Web page


NCI’s Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences has launched a new menthol and tobacco Web page that provides background information on the pharmacological properties of menthol and its use in tobacco products as a cigarette additive and flavoring. The page also highlights research on the tobacco industry’s targeted marketing practices to promote the use of menthol tobacco products, and it includes updated information on menthol cigarette use among current smokers by sociodemographic characteristics, based on national data from the 2006–07 Tobacco Use Supplement to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey. Other resources, including information on the 2002 First Conference on Menthol Cigarettes, related publications, and links to national and state-level surveys that include questions on menthol, are also available.

Most recently, NCI posted a comprehensive bibliography that includes 343 peer-reviewed research articles related to menthol and tobacco and the final report from the recent Second Conference on Menthol Cigarettes, held in October 2009.
