Head of state’s anti-smoking positioners had pronounced earlier in the week that electronic replacements of smoking have not been in any way affective in downsizing the amount of smokers in many states, such as New York.
Harlan Juster, director of the Health Department’s Bureau of Tobacco Control, justifies that New York users of the e-cigarettes could potentially ruin the progress made by smokers that have quit among the years. Juster states “We know that the… devices are being used at a much higher rate, but the quit rate for smoking isn’t changing. We are certain that more research is needed, but to date no study has shown that quitting is enhanced by (their) use.”
Litigation for the standing of how the e-cigarette industry should be shaped began on Monday to coordinate a new regulation. The Clean Indoor Air Act came to use in determining how to monitor e-cigarettes, which had its deciding factor be to not use any form of smoking in public locations whatsoever. However, supporters of the e-cigarette felt as though Monday’s prosecution was unfair because the industry only heard what they wanted to hear.
Chief Development officer of Amsterdam-based Revolution Vapor, Joe Bittlingmaier, says “I think they lined up a panel of people to tell them exactly what they wanted to hear” when asked of the proceeding. The banning of e-liquid would put his company, as well as others, out of business if there had been another bill proposing to terminate the industry.
The conversion from regular cigarettes to electronic cigarettes gives off the impression that the market is attempting to seduce a younger crowd into picking up the habit, as Juster declared. The correlation among the causation, however, does not show any evidence in younger people being influenced to smoke.
Those who oppose the e-cigarette believe that the fabricators are using different flavors, such as cherry and bubblegum, to receive attention from a younger crowd, in hopes of attaining more business. The tactic of using desirable flavors was used by tobacco companies that believed this would get people to enjoy the taste of smoking and continue using the product.
“People who tend to look at these as cessation devices aren’t looking at the population as a whole. They’re looking at the individual user only and saying, ‘This might help this user.’ But not if it gets 10 new kids to smoke. That’s not worth it. That’s not a calculation I’m willing to make,” Juster said.
The federal Food and Drug Administration wants to regulate the e-cigarettes as regular tobacco products are standardized. These means that selling to minors will be prohibited and health warnings must be included on the e-cigarette package as well, even though the amount of studies there are cannot prove whether the e-cigarette has the same effect on the human body as traditional cigarettes do.
Those such as Michael Burgess, government relations manager for the American Cancer Society Action Network, Inc, calls the e-cigarette “another gimmick to re-glamorize the dangerous practice and get more people smoking.” Among no lines does the industry decorate the title of e-cigarette to be a getaway from traditional cigarettes, let alone would the FDA approve this.
Phil Daman, an attorney and president of the Smoke Free Alternatives Trade Association clarifies “We don’t claim to be cessation products. In fact, we go out of our way to say these are not cessation products. We simply say these are an alternative— an alternative— to tobacco consumption. “E-cigarettes, such as ProSmoke, have the ability to control the amount of nicotine desired in the system to assist in giving the feel of smoking a traditional cigarette, without the negative effects of tobacco.
If smokers make the transition to smoking e-cigarettes rather than traditional cigarettes, then there is a “reason to be hopeful of the potential of e-cigarettes to reduce the disease burden caused by tobacco,” as spoken by Andrew Hyland, chairman of the Department of Health Behavior at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
Hyland cautions of the anonymous effects of e-cigarettes, but administers that the best thing to do for smokers is quit smoking in any form. There are no concrete decisions on what the outcome will finalize to. Regular cigarettes have been tested for many years and have proven the side effects that are equipped with them. Whether e-cigarettes are an alternative or equivalent to regular cigarettes is up to experiments in progress. There still is not enough evidence to come to a final verdict on whether e-cigarettes are better option for today’s society.
Much of the information cited by opponents of e-cigarettes is inaccurate, randomly chosen from unofficial studies that were not controlled or scientific, and by no means repeatable. Much of the new information being released in new studies, that are mutually agreed upon in the scientific and health communities, shows the exact opposite to the inaccurate data cited by those battling this growing industry. Many just need to turn their ear to electronic cigarette users to hear how it has positively affected their lives.
