Recent Swiss reports confirmed that several chemical products added to cigarettes may increase the level of dependence and therefore the consumption of cigarettes. Observational studies demonstrated the association between smoking and type II diabetes, that smoking one to four cigarettes daily increases significantly the risk of disease and that the relative risk of breast cancer among non smoking women exposed to passive smoking is increased by 30%. The safety of nicotine replacement therapy for patients with cardiovascular disorders has been confirmed. Among new pharmacological approaches, varenicline, rimonabant, topiramate and nicotine vaccine all appear promising.
