Little To No Regulations Has Caused Concerns For Use Of Electronic Cigarettes
Increasing concern has grown in regards to the health risks linked to electronic cigarettes, especially as the tobacco industry gave them praise for being the future. However, the complaints of health problems – breathing difficulties, eye redness, headaches and nausea – have caught the attention of the World Health Organization that said the possible risks justified stringent rules and regulation on control of e-cigarette sales.
And, rules and regulations is not something tobacco companies like to hear or experience. And, until recently, there wasn’t any such rule and regulation these companies like British American Tobacco and Imperial Tobacco, allowing them to enjoy the benefits that came from not having that. Some studies, including some the WHO has cited, have caused at least 30 countries to ban e-cigarette advertisements and using the products inside buildings.
What Is The Concern For The E-Cigarettes
Electronic cigarettes work when the liquid nicotine mix, flavoring and dilutants are heated up. When users inhale the mixture, it turns to vapor. There is no tobacco or cancer-causing chemicals in the smoke, and because of that, the tobacco industry can advertise them as being a way for traditional smokers to quit smoking.
However, the WHO isn’t worried about the current smokers. Rather, they’re worried what the effects are on the passive smokers, many of whom have complained they felt sick when they were exposed to the e-cigarettes.
Another issue the industry is dealing with is the merging of e-cigarette regulation. For instance, Britain has decided a medical approach is best for its country – starting in 2016; any device will need approval by the regulatory board that also approves pharmaceutical drugs. The EU is using another approach, by doing two things:
BATS, however, has noted tobacco companies should have some responsibility so they can do their e-cigarette advertisements to showcase they have a better safety record over the conventional cigarette smoking products.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in April, offered an allowance of its tobacco authority to cover e-cigarettes, enact age restrictions and austere product reviews. According to critics, the proposals didn’t nearly address the tough stance the FDA has taken on conventional tobacco products.
It’s believed that e-cigarettes are found in more than 7,000 flavors and in 62 countries. It’s been estimated that the worldwide sales for e-cigarettes reached billion last year, which is an increase from million in 2008.
