Less is better—sometimes

Global cigarette sales are going down. In most rich countries the proportion of adults who smoke is falling. So why aren’t antitobacco activists celebrating? Our feature this week by Jonathan Gornall (doi:10.1136/bmj.h2052) is the first in a series of articles that describe the efforts of the tobacco industry to regain credibility and influence public policy. Many experts say that the hard won successes of the war against tobacco are in danger of being undone. Population growth will be concentrated in countries with poor tobacco control, and population expansion will exceed any decrease in prevalence. Furthermore, tobacco company profits continue to rise, in part because of expansion into a variety of alternative tobacco and nicotine products, particularly electronic cigarettes (doi:10.1136/bmj.h2133).
