This product is known as 'smokeless cigarettes' in world, which enters tobacco act with phrase "new tobacco products that do not fall into category of cigarettes and or tobacco products".
"Reduced damage" is a scam
The cigarette industry also classifies se new products as "reduced damage" in industry, claiming that tobacco is less lethal than burning. The appearance of a cigarette-like product warms up to 350 degrees without burning tobacco in its capsule. That's why it doesn't smoke. But smoker takes nicotine. There is no evidence that this product is not harmful to health. Prof. Dr. Dağlı said: "There is no safe dose of nicotine because re is no safe new product." The basic medical and ethical approach is to accept that any product can be harmful until proven by neutral scientific institutions where it is absolutely harmless. Likewise, new products are not harmless, ' damage is reduced ' claim is easily understood. A product that has no harm should be less taxed. The public should not be offered. "

Dr. Çağla Uyanusta, chairman of Turkish Thoracic Association's Tobacco Control Study Group, has been threatened with se products, which allegedly did not enter category "Cigarettes and or tobacco products", but which contained a tobacco derivative and main ingredient of addiction.

According to international contracts signed by Turkey, Dr. Uyanusta said he was obliged to take measures on nicotine addiction, a disease that should be treated, "re is no safe dose of tobacco and nicotine. Nicotine is addictive no matter what dose. Removing nicotine by heating or burning does not eliminate addictive effect. For health of our people, se products should not be provided with ease of tax and should be preceded by supply, "he said.Harmful to every angle
