    Banning e-cigarettes could increase cancer

    Colin Mendelsohn: Banning e-cigarettes could increase cancer
    Colin Mendelsohn, The Daily Telegraph

    CANCER Council NSW’s latest *advice to strictly regulate electronic cigarettes like *tobacco products is well meaning, but misguided and could be harmful.

    E-cigarettes are a much safer, tobacco-free alternative to smoking and have helped millions of smokers around the world to quit. They provide the nicotine to which smokers are addicted and the familiar hand-to-mouth smoking ritual, but without all the tars, chemicals and gases that cause almost all the harm from smoking.

    Nothing is totally free from risk, and some regulation of the marketing and use of e-cigarettes is justified, particularly to protect under 18s. But heavy-handed restrictions on “vaping” will inadvertently discourage smokers from switching to this potentially lifesaving, innovative technology.

    Many Australians wrongly believe e-cigarettes are as bad for you as smokes, if not worse. In reality, e-cigarettes are considerably safer. The highly respected UK Royal College of Physicians *recently concluded that the health risk from long-term vaping “is unlikely to exceed 5 per cent of the harm from smoking tobacco”. It follows that smokers who switch to *e-cigarettes will have substantial health improvements.

    There is also growing evidence that e-cigarettes are an effective aid to quitting and should be considered by smokers who are unable to quit with other treatments. According to a recent study, an estimated six million people in the European Union alone reported having quit smoking with e-cigarettes.
    Getting the right regulatory balance is critical. The lives of hundreds of thousands of Australian smokers depend on it.

    In fact, their potential benefit to public health is so great that the Royal College of Physicians report concludes “it is important to promote the use of e-cigarettes … as widely as possible as a substitute for smoking”.

    Cancer Council NSW claims electronic cigarettes could be a gateway to smoking for children and non-smokers. However, the overseas experience suggests the opposite. As expected, some kids experiment briefly with e-cigarettes but regular use in non-smokers is rare. Most importantly, in the UK, US and other countries where e-cigarette use has risen among youths, levels of tobacco use are continuing to fall, in some places at record rates.

    So instead of suppressing e-cigarettes as Cancer Council NSW wants, it’s better to encourage their use with appropriate controls. Banning sales to minors, *requiring child-resistant containers, product quality and safety standards, and restricted use in some confined *spaces are sensible. However, heavy-handed approaches such as bans on advertising, product display, vaping in smoke-free areas and fruity and sweet flavours, could do more harm than good.

    Appropriate advertising of e-cigarettes helps inform smokers of the availability of a safer option to smoking. A sensible advertising code would ensure e-cigarettes were promoted responsibly to adult smokers as a safer alternative while minimising any appeal to children and non-smokers. The UK has such a code and we should too. Similarly, allowing the display of products in retail outlets can raise awareness of a potentially lifesaving product and could trigger smokers to switch.

    There is also no justification on health grounds for a blanket ban on vaping in smoke-free areas. Unlike second-hand smoke, there is no evidence so far that vapour poses any significant risk to bystanders. Prohibiting e-cigarettes in smoke-free areas sends the misleading message that e-cigarettes are just as harmful as smoking. On the other hand, allowing vaping in some areas adds to the appeal of e-cigarettes and could encourage smokers to switch.

    And flavours? They make e-cigarette use more enjoyable and encourage their uptake as a safer alternative to smoking. The more positive the experience, the more *likely it is that the smoker will switch from deadly cigarettes.

    Cancer Council NSW should follow the recommendations of Cancer Research UK, the UK equivalent of our Cancer Council, which supports “a balanced approach towards e-cigarettes, which maximises their potential to help people quit smoking, while minimising the risks of unintended consequences that could promote smoking”. Getting the right regulatory balance is critical. The lives of hundreds of thousands of Australian smokers depend on it.

    E-cigarette crackdown not enough, Tasmanian anti-smoking group says

    E-cigarette crackdown not enough, Tasmanian anti-smoking group says - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)



    Renewed calls for the State Government to ensure vaporisers cannot be sold to children in SA

    http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/renewed-calls-for-the-state-government-to-ensure-vaporisers-cannot-be-sold-to-children-in-sa/news-story/83183fa3422a47833d907a3a6ba2a0eb

    MOVES to legalise the use of nicotine in electronic-cigarettes have prompted renewed calls for the State Government to ensure the vaporisers cannot be sold to children in South Australia.

    The Government has committed to banning the sale of the devices to children but is facing calls to fast-track the necessary changes.
    Federally, authorities are considering whether to amend the rules to allow the use of small amounts of nicotine in e-cigarettes.
    Currently, liquid used in the vaporisers cannot contain nicotine as it is a controlled substance.
    However, some people shirk the rules by importing the addictive drug for personal use.
    E-cigarettes currently fall into a legal grey area in SA and the Government had pledged to release proposed regulations, which would treat them similarly to tobacco cigarettes, early this year.
    Opposition spokesman Vincent Tarzia says clearer rules are urgently needed to prevent children from being able to inhale nicotine using unregulated vaporisers.
    “Given how e-cigarettes are evolving and being regulated around the rest of the world, the State Government must move quickly to prevent the sale of these e-cigarettes to children,” he said.


    Mr Tarzia has a Bill before state Parliament – which returns from a summer break on February 14 – that would ban the sale of the devices to people aged younger than 18 years.
    He is urging Government MPs to support his Bill.
    However, Substance Abuse Minister Leesa Vlahos said the Bill was “simplistic in its approach and does not take account of the legal complexities of regulating e-cigarettes under the Act”.
    It is believed about 20,100 South Australians use e-cigarettes – or about 1.2 per cent of the population – and they are growing in popularity.
    The battery-operated devices vaporise a refillable cartridge of liquid to create a vapour that the user inhales, simulating the action of smoking.
    E-cigarettes have been sold in Australia for about five years but legislation governing their sale and use varies around the nation.
    Western Australia has banned the sale of vaporisers.
    Queensland, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory have put restrictions in place and Victoria will regulate the devices from August this year.
    Last November, The Advertiser revealed that the SA Government planned to ban e-cigarettes in non-smoking areas such as outdoor dining venues, just like tobacco cigarettes.
    Retailers would not be allowed to sell the vaporisers to children, nor advertise or promote e-cigarette products under the proposed regulations.
