Tutunul sau tabacul este o plantă din genul Nicotiana, familia Solanaceae. În lume există peste 70 de specii de plante de tutun, principala din ele din punct de vedere comercial fiind Nicotiana tabacum.

Frunzele uscate de tutun sunt fumate în țigarete, trabucuri și pipe.

Folosirea tabacului este un factor de risc pentru multe boli, în special cele ce afectează inima, ficatul și plămânii și poate cauza apariția cancerului. Conform Organizației Mondiale a Sănătății, tutunul este singura cauză majoră a decesului prematur în lume.[1]
