United States</a> Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller issued a statement on the announcement issued by the US Food and Drug Administration on September 9, expressing concern about the impact of the FDA’s actions, especially the more harmful effects of withdrawal from the market. The unintended consequences of small cigarette substitutes.
He said that we are worried about the impact of the FDA's actions, especially the unintended consequences of withdrawing less harmful cigarette substitutes from the market. We believe that the best information available shows that most young people do not buy e-cigarettes from e-cigarette stores, and the FDA review will have a great impact. Many adults are using e-cigarette store products to stay away from combustible cigarettes.
Tom Miller said, let us not forget the huge risks to public health: The CDC estimates that 480,000 people in the United States are burdened by tobacco use each year, all of which are caused by cigarette use.
"We believe in strong, science-based supervision of alternative tobacco products, and the FDA is the best agency to undertake this task. Policy makers must provide low-risk nicotine products that may save lives and prevent those people from using it. There is a proper balance between these products, especially young people.” Tom Miller said.
He also quoted this sentence from an article recently published by 15 former presidents of the Nicotine and Tobacco Research Association:
We believe that the potential life-saving benefits of e-cigarettes to adult smokers are worthy of attention, just as the risks to young people are. Millions of middle-aged and elderly smokers are currently at high risk of illness and death. Quitting smoking reduces the risk. "
