How does regulation affect tobacco users?

Using the PATH Study to see how regulating tobacco products affects behavior and health

On September 19, 2011, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) initiated a prospective, longitudinal cohort study to assess tobacco use behaviors and health across the nation.

The Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study is designed to support FDA efforts to regulate tobacco products under the 2009 Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act for purposes of protecting the public health. To fulfill this mandate, FDA requires a solid evidence base to inform its regulatory activities.
