Abstract

Objective-To compare the nicotine content of 12 unfiltered brands of bidi cigarettes (hand rolled cigarettes imported from India) with 8 popular brands of filtered and unfiltered US and conventional cigarettes from India. Main outcome measures-Identical laboratory procedures were used to determine nicotine content tin duplicate) and physical characteristics. Results-The nicotine concentration in the tobacco of bidi cigarettes (21.2mg/g) was significantly greater than the tobacco from the commercial filtered (16.3 mg/g) and unfiltered cigarettes (13.5 mg/g). Conclusions-Bidi cigarettes contain higher concentrations of nicotine thanconventional cigarettes. Therefore, it is logical to presume that bidi smokers are at risk of becoming nicotine dependent. These findings belie a popular belief among US teens that bidis are a safe alternative to commercial cigarettes.
