The United States decided to take a step towards the electronic cigarette, which is understood to be harmless because many people prefer it to standard cigarette but kill it much faster than normal cigarettes. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will soon ban flavored electronic cigarettes.
The electronic cigarette, which was marketed as harmless cigarette when it first came out, has caused more than 450 cases in a very short time and has become the cause of at least 6 deaths, not innocent. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is also taking steps to ban electronic cigarettes.
The announcement was made today by Alex Azar, Secretary of Health and Human Services. In a statement, these devices pave the way for a new generation of nicotine addiction said.
Electronic cigarettes are not legally marketed:
According to HHS, the FDA is currently in the process of drafting a policy aimed at non-tobacco-flavored and unauthorized electronic cigarettes. On August 8, a rule came into force, requiring companies to sell tobacco products to the FDA in the next two years.
HHS said that the electronic cigarette systems currently on the market are not marketed legally, and that this should be regulated by the state. The FDA will introduce a new arrangement of flavored electronic cigarette products that do not have pre-marketing authorization, with new policies expected to be announced in the coming weeks. Ned Sharpless of the FDA made the following statements:
"After its preparation, this compliance policy will become a powerful tool the FDA can use against the prevalence of electronic cigarette use among young people. if we see a trend, we can take additional measures. "
The FDA has been criticized for being late:
The US has made electronic cigarettes a focus in recent months, but the FDA has been the focus of many criticisms because of its slow movement. FDA's lack of regulatory measures was one of the first points in people's criticism.
Since the beginning of August, an anonymous lung disease that has become common among electronic cigarette users has been on the agenda. The cause of this disease, which has extremely serious consequences, is not yet fully explained. Although there is no official statement, the reason for the disease among electronic cigarette users is thought to be electronic cigarettes.
