Māori health advocates call for lower nicotine levels

By Te Ao Māori News

Newly-released statistics show Māori smoking rates have dropped by nearly 10% from 2006 to 2013. 

Māori health specialists say while this is cause for some celebration, figures show tāngata whenua were still lagging behind non-Māori when it comes to quitting.

Hence their call to Government to lower nicotine levels in cigarettes.
