Hand-Rolling Tobacco Less Harmful, True or False

March 3rd, 2011 by Isabela Mayer

buy camel onlineA health campaign has been launched in Bath and North East Somerset to target smokers who use hand-rolling tobacco. Almost 25 per cent of smokers in B&NES use hand-rolling tobacco under the illusion that it is less harmful than smoking normal Camel cigarettes. A campaign, launched by Smokefree South West and supported by NHS B&NES, aims to highlight the risks associated with hand-rolling tobacco. Research conducted among smokers found that many believe hand-rolling is more natural and is a healthier option.

NHS B&NES Stop Smoking manager Richard Merrett said: “It is important for people to know that while smoking hand-rolling tobacco may be cheaper, it is every bit as harmful as ready-made cigarettes.” The campaign, which is backed by Cancer Research UK, will have a presence across the South West, and includes billboards, support packs to help smokers quit, and radio and TV adverts. Smokefree South West has developed a new Wise Up to Roll Ups pack, in a style of a tobacco pouch, containing information about hand-rolling tobacco and help to quit the habit.
