Blue Hole New Consumption Report, November 30 news, according to foreign news reports, a new research paper attempts to clarify the confusion surrounding nicotine consumption and its role in smoking-induced diseases. This paper published by the Consumer Choice Center outlines six main reasons why the nicotine war is meaningless and should end.
The researchers wrote: Many governments, public health agencies and anti-smoking activists have not celebrated the decline in the number of smokers and deaths, but have been looking for new enemies. They decided to make a scapegoat for nicotine. As a result, the fight against smoking gradually turned into a fight against nicotine. This approach has dire consequences: fewer people are turning to less harmful alternatives.
The paper was co-authored by Michael Randall, director of the World Electronic Cigarette User Alliance, and Maria Chapulia, research manager of the Consumer Choice Center.
The author lists six reasons to stop the nicotine war:
The researchers recommend that policy makers prioritize practical solutions. "Public health needs to use all available possibilities," they wrote. "People who cannot quit smoking should be encouraged to switch to less harmful alternatives. Nicotine is not the main problem with smoking, but toxins are."
The author also stated that regulation should be commensurate with risk. They wrote: The regulations must be drafted based on the actual risks of the product. E-cigarettes or snuff are less harmful than smoking, so they must be treated differently. When delivered through e-cigarettes, nicotine does not become poison. When nicotine is not a problem in the gums and patches, e-cigarettes will not become a bigger problem. The moral panic over nicotine must end.
"Addiction is complex and cannot be solved by a war on nicotine. When it comes to addiction, public health policy should not only single out one substance. The potential benefits of nicotine must be explored, and a fair scientific effort must be ensured. Public. Policies must accept that many people use nicotine in a recreational way. The war on nicotine will fail, and public misunderstandings about nicotine must be eliminated. They discourage people from turning to less harmful alternatives that harm public health."
