    Höjd skatt på snus en folkhälsorisk

    Higher tax on snus a risk to public health
    Leaders today 00:30 | Updated today 06:37

    290 percent , it is the percentage increase in the tax on snus for the period 2006 to 2015. To put things in perspective, the corresponding increase in the cigarette tax only been 50 percent during the same period.

    Last in order of tax surcharges are in government right now current spring bill where one chooses to raise snus tax rate by 22 percent.

    The government chooses to defend the increase by claiming that they are done by public health and tobacco use to society associated with high costs. Retail Institute was commissioned by the Food Federation and Food Workers Union , based on the impact of the new excise tax may bring. The conclusion presented in a report made ​​clear that the tax increase could lead up to 7000 more daily smokers . Because it is scientifically proven that snus is associated with 10 to 1000 times lower health risks than smoking appears the Government's public health arguments both toothless and empty.
    Snus has for many smokers have been a natural transition when one wanted to downsize or quit smoking completely . This makes a disproportionate burden on the snus a public health hazard rather than a health benefit as more tobacco users no longer see snus as a viable alternative to cigarettes.

    It may seem so to the government, or rather, Anders Borg , has not been particularly well-informed on the issue, but no. Accountant Borg 's certainly not a stupid person, he knows exactly what he's doing. He counts namely, dollar for dollar and based on that logic , snus is a grateful prey. Unlike cigarettes , snus is a national product and may not be sold in the EU, thus eliminating the potential smuggling that could occur if the surrounding markets allowed snus. It is clear that smuggling of cigarettes increases the frequency when subjected to heavy excise taxes, same with alcohol. Anders Borg knows all this and see why snus as a stable source of revenue to the state because it mainly produced and consumed within the country.
    Taxing tobacco products hard is an easy policy to pursue , it is seldom criticized because the purpose is for the public good , public health. This time , the simple path policy to be stuck in a leghold traps as more and more experts now suggest that a high snus cat indeed may be a risk to public health .

    That may be for the Treasury an economically smart move by Anders Borg to push through his snus tax. However, he seems to have misjudged the snus is one of the Swedish people and that too tough stance towards the black gold under the lip can lead to a widespread popular discontent . In the same way as the duo Reinfeldt and Borg surrendered by the proposal to reduce grants when the students were angry , will now a U-turn current snuff Mantro ?How much more expensive is alcohol and snus

Although the tobacco contains more nicotine because he would but recorded directly on the gums , a portion snus is less harmful than a cigarette. This also means the Institute for the Prevention of Alcohol and Drug Problems , however, notes that instead there is a risk of damage to gums and oral mucosa .

    In Switzerland, the professional basis importing and selling portioned Swedish snus is prohibited. For personal use may be imported per two months maximum of 1.2 pounds. "But the customs fees are horrendous ," says Grob. And that snus substitute " Thunder " , which is available at kiosks in Switzerland, was with " proper , Swedish snus " not comparable.

    Professor: and always translated with goole translate

    Professor : - Snus is good for public health

    Professor Willy Pedersen says the increased use of snus in Norway is good news for public health.
    A new study of Norwegian 16- year-olds substance abuse and tobacco use shows a dramatic decline in the number of daily smokers. While every fourth age 16 smoked in 2002 , the figure for 2010 fell to just seven percent. The number of snus users in the age group increased from 4 percent in 2002 to 12 percent in 2010 , writes Forskning.no .
    - Smokeless tobacco is less harmful than cigarettes. Snus has estimated only 10 percent of injury risk as smoking entails. It would of course be nice if children did not begin to sniff either, but from a public health perspective, this is good news and a vast difference from the situation ten years ago . There is every reason to celebrate, says Pedersen.
    The question is whether it is the same youth who before would have smoked that day smoker instead.
    - We either against a good number of those who now sniff , would have smoked ten years ago . Therefore , I believe this is a positive development , says Willy Pedersen.
    Sociology Professor Willy Pedersen is behind the study with associate professor of psychology Tilmann von Soest at the University of Oslo.
    In the study , researchers surveyed the development of drug use among 16 -year-olds between 2002 and 2010, and looked at smoking and smokeless tobacco in the context of social background, school performance , social networking , sports participation , mental health, and use of alcohol and cannabis.
    The study is published in the international journal Addiction . ( AFP )

    SM so far really are my favourite. Their barrier is the price. The retail price on something that costs them about 60c to make is way too high. Market domination? Price drop across the board and they will weed out any competitor in a simple sniff...which btw is what I found myself doing reading the professors statement
