Doctors dismiss tobacco industry evidence on plain packaging as 'irrelevant'

Evidence used by the tobacco industry to torpedo plans to introduce plain cigarette packets in England was largely irrelevant and of low quality, doctors have said.

Out of 77 pieces of apparently scientific evidence offered by the four main tobacco companies during a Government consultation on the policy in 2012, only 17 actually addressed the question of standardized packaging, and 14 of these were studies that had been funded by the tobacco industry, according to a report in the online medical journal BMJ Open.
