This segment of What’s Ahead sharply admonishes the Food and Drug Administration’s cruel and wrongheaded crusade against e-cigarettes.
The agency refuses to green-light even a single application, putting the vaping industry in legal limbo. It should follow the science, as other countries are doing.
Real world experience and studies have demonstrated that nicotine vaping is 95% safer than traditional cigarettes. It’s by far the most effective way to stop smoking—better than nicotine patches, gums and other antismoking aids. That’s why British health authorities strongly recommend vaping to reduce cigarette smoking. In fact, the country’s national health service hosts vaping shops in its hospitals. And France doesn’t tax e-cigarettes, in sharp contrast to the levies it imposes on traditional tobacco products.
Contrary to myth, vaping isn’t a gateway to teenage smoking, which has actually been declining.
