The EU commissioner keeps spreading falsehoods about vaping

Meanwhile, in yet another statement spreading falsehoods about vaping, EU Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, Stella Kyriakides, questioned the effectiveness of vaping as a smoking cessation aid, and even claimed vaping acts as a gateway to smoking.

Director of the World Vapers’ Alliance (WVA) Michael Landl, said it is distressing that the EC is still ignoring the science about vaping and making such claims. “It is shocking that the EU Commission still peddles these worn-out and debunked theories. The Commission systematically ignores the wealth of scientific evidence pointing to the benefits of vaping, not to mention the first-hand experience of millions of vapers. Vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking and a more effective method to quit smoking than traditional therapies such as gum and patches. The Commission’s approach to vaping will do nothing but cost lives.”

The statement in question is a written response to a query by MEP Sara Skyttedal regarding the future treatment of vaping and snus, and where they fit in Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan. “Overall, smokeless and emerging tobacco and related products contain nicotine, a toxic and highly addictive substance – responsible for well-known health consequences – and they prolong the nicotine addiction3 . This is why these products are regulated and in the case of oral tobacco, banned in the EU,” concluded the statement.

Sadly, instead of considering the science on nicotine, Commissioner Kyriakides insists on refusing to listen to science, experts, and consumers. “The statement shows that the EU Commission intends to further crackdown on vaping. This is not a good sign regarding the upcoming Tobacco Products Directive update. This strengthens our conviction that consumers need to raise their voices. We need to convince our representatives in the European Parliament to push back on the Commission’s hostility towards harm reduction,” added Landl.
