THEWorld Health Organization (WHO) never takes a break when it comes to tackling vaping to such an extent that it becomes a bad habit that results in violent intercourse several times a year. More worried about the potential effects of vaping than the ravages of smoking, more worried about vaping than about the behavior of the pharmaceutical industry, WHO publishes a new report produced jointly with Bloomberg Philanthropies.
Un new report de The World Health Organization (WHO) recently set the web on fire. Posted Tuesday by Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the boss of the UN agency and produced jointly with Bloomberg Philanthropies, this poisoned report is a real attack in order against the vape.
Their goal is simple: to make a new generation addicted to nicotine. We cannot allow this to happen - Michael R. Bloomberg
« Nicotine is highly addictive and electronic nicotine inhalers are dangerous and need to be better regulated Is the shameful conclusion of Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of WHO.
« Where such devices are not prohibited, governments should adopt appropriate policies to protect their populations from the harms of electronic nicotine inhalers and to prevent their use by children, adolescents and other vulnerable groups. ».
CONTINUE TO BAN OR STRONGLY REGULATE VAPING!
To date, 32 countries have banned the sale of electronic nicotine inhalers. Seventy-nine others have adopted at least one partial measure to ban its use in public places, ban advertising, promotion and sponsorship, or require the display of health warnings on packaging. This means that there are still 84 countries where they are not subject to any form of regulation or restriction.
Michael R. Bloomberg, WHO Global Ambassador for Noncommunicable Diseases and Injury and Founder of Bloomberg Philanthropies, said: “ Over a billion people around the world still smoke. And as cigarette sales have plummeted, tobacco companies have launched aggressive marketing of new products - like e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products - and pressured governments to limit regulation. Their goal is simple: to make a new generation addicted to nicotine. We cannot allow this to happen. »
Le Dr Rüdiger Krech, Director of the Health Promotion Department of the WHO, highlighted the challenges related to the regulation of these products. " These products are extremely diverse and evolve rapidly. Some can be changed by the consumer, so that nicotine concentration and risk levels are difficult to regulate. Others are marketed under the label “nicotine free”, but after analysis it often appears that they contain the addictive element. It can be almost indistinguishable from products containing nicotine from others, or even from some products containing tobacco. This is just one of the schemes the industry has put in place to circumvent and undermine tobacco control measures. »
In conclusion, the WHO report states that while electronic nicotine inhalers need to be regulated to best protect public health, tobacco control must continue to focus on reducing tobacco consumption. worldwide. Clearly, understand that we must give power and total control to the pharmaceutical industry.
