Welcome to factasia

factasia.org is all about consumer choice. We advocate rational debate about – and sensible regulation of – the rights of adult citizens throughout Asia to choose to use nicotine related products.

factasia.org is an independent, not-for-profit, consumer-oriented advocacy. We do not promote smoking or the use of nicotine, and we oppose all under-age use of any product containing nicotine.

More than half a billion adults throughout Asia use these products. They deserve a say in whether they should be able to continue to do so, and whether they can choose alternatives that may be a lot less harmful.
