PHE’s Response to the SRNT Paper


Public Health England’s (PHE) Martin Dockrell and John Newton have responded to the paper written by the fifteen past presidents of the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco Research (SRNT).

The editorial article is published by the American Journal of Public Health and lends further weight to pro-vaping arguments.

Mirroring the SRNT paper, Newton and Dockrell repeat: “Early divisions among public health experts led to polarized coverage in the media, confused messages to the public, and inconsistent policymaking between jurisdictions.”

They point out that while America has fixated on the fictional fear of a teen epidemic, the UK has balanced concern over youth initiation with the “potential benefits for smokers of easy access to nicotine vaping products.”
