Experts: Tobacco smoke, not nicotine, is the cause of smoking-related diseases

"Many decades of research into the effects of cigarette smoke on human health have passed, and we know for almost half a century that the primary cause of malignancy and other diseases is constant and repeated inhalation of tobacco smoke," says Professor David T. Sweanor. chairing the advisory board of the Center for Health Law, Policy and Ethics at the University of Ottawa.

Swinor is a Canadian expert who believes that the approach of "reducing the damage" from tobacco smoke is one of the greatest advances in public health. For decades, he has advocated for a reduction in cigarette smoking.

Contrary to popular belief, nicotine is not a substance that causes these diseases. "Nicotine itself is not a problem. "The global health catastrophe we are facing is a consequence of the way we use it," he explained. New technologies and product development have made it possible for nicotine to be consumed without burning, giving smokers a less harmful option compared to cigarettes. Unlike cigarettes, as he explains, devices that heat and do not burn tobacco and snus deliver nicotine doses without burning.

"We can now get rid of cigarette smoke in the way it has been done in many countries where consumers are redirected to other products from those that are harmful to health. "We can use science, technology to define a framework in which cigarette smoking is reduced," he claims. Swinor points to the case of Japan, where a third of the cigarette market has practically disappeared in just three years, after the first device that heats rather than burns tobacco, IQOS manufactured by Philip Morris, began to be sold in that country.
