The Great Nicotine Myth

Nicotine is one of the last great taboo subjects in the western world, and as a result is subject to some powerful myths and restrictions completely unrelated to its actual properties. As a good example of this, most people would be surprised – even amazed – to learn that there is not even a single published clinical trial of nicotine; an extraordinary fact considering the intense interest in this subject (and which raises many interesting questions). It also means we do not have even the most basic evidence to discuss some aspects of it.
There are four nicotine myths perpetuated in modern culture that have no basis in fact. These are:
1. The myth of nicotine’s dangerous and alien nature
2. The myth of nicotine’s toxicity
3. The myth of nicotine’s potential for addiction
4. The myth of nicotine’s potential for harm
