The International Network of Nicotine Consumer Organisations (INNCO) calls on local governments to conduct health impact studies on proposed flavour bans as research analysis finds anti-vaping arguments counterproductive to reducing harm caused by smoking.
INNCO is a non-profit organisation that supports the rights of 98 million adults worldwide who use safer nicotine to avoid toxic forms of tobacco. INNCO is funded by individual contributions from thousands of adult ex-smokers and by a grant from the Foundation for a Smoke-Free World.
INNCO says that with the ninth session of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) scheduled to take place next month, it is recommending that local governments proposing e-liquid flavour bans first conduct health impact studies to determine how many adult vapers will return to smoking and how many fewer smokers will quit.
