ELECTRONIC cigarettes may be the greatest tool in the fight against lung cancer that the world has ever seen.
Its not too often the major news outlets produce content that sides with electronic cigarettes so it’s great to see that Simon Breheny, writing for the Daily Telegraph in Australia, seems to have actually done a little background work on e cig research. and in turn come up with a sane view on the product.
E-cigarettes and reduced risk products should be seen for what they are — the latest in cutting-edge tobacco quitting devices.
It’s against the law to sell these products by claiming they have a therapeutic benefit. But the science is clear — e-cigarettes save lives.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration should recognise the medical benefits of these products and immediately approve their use for thousands of Australians trying to quit smoking.
Governments should be making room for life-saving innovations. Markets for new products that allow individuals to make better choices must be allowed to flourish.
Where governments have failed the free market will succeed.
