"The public would be better served if U.S. Government officials focused their energy and attention on irresponsible manufacturers, and eliminate those who use inappropriate flavor names and employ marketing strategies that appeal to the youth," said Stamler. "The FDA Deeming Rule that went into effect on August 8, 2016 to regulate vaping products does not address this issue, nor the good manufacturing practices and the safety of certain flavorings that most irresponsible manufacturers are using in their e-liquids."
The UK Royal College of Physicians took a much different approach last April and stated that vaping is about 95% safer than smoking and can be used effectively in smoking cessation. The U.S. Surgeon General's report does not mention this.
"We are extremely disappointed that the US Surgeon General Report makes no mention of the UK
Royal College of Physicians comprehensive report published earlier this year, which arrived at different conclusions about the vaping products' potential to reduce harm in various populations, including youth, while duly acknowledging potential risks," said Patricia Kovacevic, General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer at Nicopure Labs. "Generally, we believe the government's repeated failure to proactively communicate comparative reduced risk of vaping versus smoking is detrimental to public health and does not meet the HHS public health mandate."
