Tobacco habits of snus users internationally (2017)
In this survey including respondents from three continents (Europe, North America and Australia) it was confirmed that 73 % of the respondents were all former smokers of cigarettes and only 7 % were both using snus and cigarettes. The survey therefore confirm scientists researchers L M Ramström and J Foulds (“Role of snus in initiation and cessation of tobacco smoking in Sweden”) that the success factor to quit smoking by those using snus is between 71-72% for men and women in Sweden.
Sweden has the demonstrably lowest proportion of smokers in Europe and also has the lowest mortality rate per capita in heart and lung diseases. This is The Swedish Experience since Swedes consume the same amount of tobacco in total as the average in EU. Something we can thank the Swedish snus for.
