According to foreign reports, with manufacturers of e-cigarettes and some other tobacco products facing September 9, 2020, the deadline for the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to apply for putting their products on the market, six leading public health and medical organizations are urging the FDA not to authorize the sale of any flavoring products.
The FDA should not authorize the sale of any flavor tobacco products, including e-cigarettes or e-liquids, because there is clear evidence that flavor products appeal to young people and drive the current prevalence of e-cigarettes among young people and young people. There is no evidence that flavoring products can help smokers quit smoking, the statement said.
In a report published earlier this year, U.S. surgeons concluded that there was not enough evidence to conclude that e-cigarettes in general would increase the number of quitters, the groups wrote.
Research shows that in the past month, 97% of young people use e-cigarettes, while 70% say they use e-cigarettes because they like the taste I like.
On the contrary, there is no reliable evidence that flavored e-cigarettes can help adult smokers quit smoking.
The organizations also called on the FDA to act quickly to remove products that need to be applied for but have not yet been submitted from the market starting from the September 9 deadline.
The organizations making the statement are the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, the American Heart Association, the American Lung Association, the smokeless children’s movement and the truth initiative.
