It seems that stupidity has definitely crossed the borders and even the oceans! Following the huge controversy over the "vapotage" that comes from the United States, some French policies go up in the slot without necessarily having all the information. For Michèle RivasiMEP Europe Ecology Greens, e-cigarettes must be regulated in the same way as tobacco at European level.
« NO TOXICOLOGICAL STUDIES ON E-CIGARETTE »According to Michal RIVASI
According to the information of our colleagues from RTL , Michèle Rivasi, the MEP Europe Ecology the Greens will ask for a revision of the tobacco directive in the European Union to apply the precautionary principle on the e-cigarette.
Asked by RTL, it is concerned about the so-called lack of health studies on this product in Europe. " The e-cigarette has been presented as a consumer good but no toxicological studies have been done on it", She laments at the microphone of RTL.
It is obvious that if we apply the same rules to e-cigarettes as to conventional tobacco it means that we must implement identical health messages, photos, neutral vials, advertising bans, the impossibility of putting these products in showcase. It also means that it will be forbidden to vapote in public places.
« That there are people who die from the use of the electronic cigarette, it is absolutely necessary that it is mentioned when people buy this product. Teens need to be alerted that there may be more risk than benefits", Says Michèle Rivasi.
