When assessing information presented by the tobacco industry, the US regulator, the Food and Drug Administration and regulatory bodies in other countries, should be aware that they are dealing with companies with a long history of intentionally misleading the public. They therefore should actively protect their public-health policies on smoking from the commercial interests of the tobacco industry and not consider the industry as a stakeholder, concludes a study by experts from the U.S. and Germany.
