The Swedish Experience
The Swedish Experience with tobacco is unique and stems from the high prevalence of snus use among tobacco users in Sweden. While total tobacco consumption levels in Sweden are comparable with other countries in Europe, Swedish men smoke substantially less than men in other countries. In addition, the risk of a man dying from a tobacco-related illness in Sweden is lower than in any other European country. According to some experts, Sweden is considered the “harm reduction capital of the world”.
