A tobacco control expert says the government’s push to urgently pass major pieces of legislation risks undermining its Smokefree 2025 target.

“There is a huge risk that if the government rushes through the Smoke-Free Environments and Regulated Products (Smoked Tobacco) Amendment Bill under parliamentary urgency, it will jeopardize progress towards a Smoke-free Aotearoa, said Dr. Marewa Glover, director of the research center on Center of Research Excellence: Indigenous Sovereignty and Tobacco.

“It is alarming that this bill continues efforts that mislead people into believing that nicotine is the harmful constituent of tobacco smoke,” says Dr. Glover.

“The capping of nicotine in all cigarettes, and potentially in all combustible tobacco products, including cigars and pipe and roll-your-own tobacco, at the subfunctional level (

“What we have is a bill that is essentially a vague outline of a work program for officials in the Ministry of Health giving them the power to decide on critical changes, such as: what constituents or characteristics of the product will be authorized or not, and at what level; or how many and what kind of retail outlets will be allowed to continue selling cigarettes and for how long. It’s ahead of the science,” Dr. Glover said.

Dr Glover says that “most of the power to decide on the severity of the changes is transferred to the Director General of the Ministry of Health. Related documents, such as the Regulatory Impact Statement, grossly underestimate the range of potential negative consequences, such as violent black market activity, and the magnitude of the potential effect of those consequences.

“It is undemocratic and a radical departure from the way smoke-free laws have been written in the past and is manipulative and underhanded.

Parliament needs to give the Bill the time it needs to consider its ramifications, not just rush in so MPs can enjoy a long Christmas break,” said Dr Glover.

For donkey years, political commentary has been about the binaries: Left/Right, Labour/National, Government/Opposition, She Said/He Said. Yet currently, much of the fascinating conflict is taking place within the centre-right. That’s because National, ACT and New Zealand First are all fishing in the same pond for grumpy, resentful voters. Why, for example, did Winston Peters break with his tradition of never naming in advance which major party he would be most likely to support in post-election negotiations? Because he had to…

Dharamsala, November 20

Health experts at Tanda Medical School have expressed concern over alternative advertisements displayed in various parts of the state promoting tobacco products.

Dr Harshvardhan Singh, assistant professor in the Department of Community Medicine at Tanda Medical School, said scientific evidence consistently suggests that exposure to tobacco advertising and promotion is associated with the likelihood that adolescents will start to consume tobacco products.

Rampant indirect advertising by tobacco companies under the guise of brand extension in Himachal was expected to derail state efforts to reduce tobacco consumption, he said.

He said the Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act 2003 (COTPA) and Article 13 of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO-FCTC) prohibits direct advertising promotion and sponsorship. and indirect tobacco products in India.

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has restricted the placement of large billboards along state and national highways. Despite the rules in place, there had been an ever-increasing exposure of brand-extender products from tobacco companies along major highways throughout the state. Large billboards advertising pan masala, flavored elaichi, etc., endorsed by popular Bollywood celebrities, can be seen everywhere, spoiling the aesthetics of the beautiful state, Dr Harshwardhan said.

Experts have written to health authorities to combat the threat of substitute tobacco advertising.

Sunil Raina, director of the Center for Advancing Tobacco Control in HP at the Government Medical College, said Himachal was leading tobacco control in the country and had the unique distinction of being declared the first “smoke-free state”. in 2013. Tobacco use among school children (13-15 years old) in Himachal was the lowest in the country (1.1%) according to the latest Global Youth Tobacco Survey (GYTS).

Tobacco use among adults had declined over the years and among adults it was 16.1% according to the Global Adult Tobacco Survey-2 compared to the national average of 28.6% .

HP had set a goal to reduce adult tobacco use to less than 10% by 2025 and less than 5% by 2030, he said.

However, these substitute advertisements could get in the way of state-set tobacco control goals, Dr. Raina said.

He said tobacco use was the single biggest source of preventable deaths globally, accounting for more than 7 million deaths a year.

On average, those who use tobacco lose about 15 years of their life. India is the third largest tobacco producer and the second largest tobacco consumer in the world, he said.

By Corey Fitzgerald, Public Health Social Worker, U.S. Army Public Health Center
ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. – Lung Cancer Awareness Month takes place in November and provides an opportunity to raise awareness among soldiers, smoking and the risk of lung cancer.

Although there are other causes of lung cancer such as exposure to radiation, radon and asbestos, smoking is the biggest risk factor.
Smoking, smoking pipes and second-hand smoke are also risk factors for lung cancer.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Lung cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States, and more people die from lung cancer than from any other type of cancer. This is true for both men and women. »

Similarly, lung cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related death among veterans.

In addition, more than 7,300 lung cancer deaths occur each year among non-smokers.

Soldiers who smoke are at the same risk of lung cancer as their civilian counterparts.

The 2021 Health of the Force report, the U.S. Army Public Health Center’s annual report on key indicators that impact soldier readiness and well-being, shows that among serving soldiers active who reported using tobacco products, smoking was the most reported behavior at age 15. percent, followed by smokeless tobacco at 11 percent and e-cigarettes at 9.1 percent.

The 2021 Army National Guard Force Health Report showed that soldiers reported a smoking rate of 14 percent.

The use of smoking products among active duty soldiers is about the same as that of the US population.

Soldiers use e-cigarettes for a variety of reasons. Scientific research has raised concerns that e-cigarette use and vaping may also increase the risk of lung cancer. E-cigarette devices and vaping liquids have been shown to contain a range of definite and potential oncogenes – genes that, under certain circumstances, can turn a cell into a tumor cell. Given the growing popularity of e-cigarettes, continued concern is warranted.

Although using e-cigarettes or vaping devices has been considered safer than smoking, Dr. Marc A. Williams, toxicologist and expert in e-cigarettes and vaping with APHC’s Toxicology Branch, warns that there is considerable uncertainty due to the complex mix of chemicals in vaping aerosols. Many of these chemicals are not meant to be inhaled into the lungs, where adverse health effects are likely to begin.
“There is a lack of quality control standards in the safe manufacture of these devices and products, which should make us all deeply skeptical or at least question the overall safety of these devices,” Williams said.

There are things soldiers and families can do to prevent or reduce the risk of lung cancer:

Do not smoke
If you have never smoked, do not start.

Be free from second-hand smoke
Second-hand smoke comes from burning tobacco products and is smoke that has been exhaled. Raising awareness about second-hand smoke can help smokers understand that it can hurt others, not just themselves. The best way to protect yourself from second-hand smoke is to create 100% smoke-free environments. Opening a window, moving to a separate area, or using ventilation or a fan does not eliminate exposure to second-hand smoke. Making your home and car smoke-free creates safe environments where soldiers and families live, learn, work and play.

To leave
Today, much more is known about the science of smoking cessation than ever before. Research shows that smokers who use evidence-based tools to help them quit are more likely to be successful than those who don’t. Here are some resources soldiers and families can use to help kick the habit:

• Education for individuals. This APHC webpage provides a number of links to resources to help soldiers, civilians, and family members achieve the goal of a tobacco-free life, set out in DoDI 1010.10 Health Promotion and disease prevention such as “adopting a lifestyle that avoids using all types of tobacco products and living free from exposure to second-hand smoke.

• You CanQuit2. This is a Department of Defense education campaign that helps service members quit smoking.

• Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), such as the nicotine patch or gum, or a prescription drug. E-cigarettes are not an FDA-approved withdrawal device. Contact your primary care provider to discuss the best NRT for you.

• Smoking cessation advice.

Use the Army Community Resource Guide to learn more about counseling resources at your installation. Using a combination of these tools further increases success rates. »

That’s a far cry from some of the prices fans traveling to Qatar face

A pop-up pub in London will serve a selection of beers and wines for just 66p on selected days of the upcoming World Cup.

The ZYN Arms, launched by nicotine pouch brand ZYN, was designed following nationwide research revealing what fans want most from their football viewing this year.

A poll of 2,000 Britons found a third wanted bar prices to be more affordable and 1 in 5 said a smoke-free environment was the only way they would enjoy watching the great outdoors match.

The refreshing and affordable 66p drinks menu is a nod to England’s victorious 1966 victory.

The pub will be open for 21+ only for three days: November 21, 22 and 23, from 12:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., and will show three matches a day.

You will be able to reserve a table for one of the three games each day.

Brits expecting cheap pints in the Middle East this winter could be shocked after it was revealed they could be charged around £80 a pint.

At one bar, the Champions Sports Bar at the Marriott hotel in Doha, a group stage match will cost £48 to enter, followed by a Budweiser, Corona or house wine at £16 – and that’s by match, as some days have three matches per day.

If you’re still there for the Round of 16, a drink will cost you £180 to get in, while the semi-finals will cost around £240.

This mouth-watering final charge is also for the final – which gives you a three-drink voucher, meaning a bottle of Corona beer will cost around £80 a pint.

Anyone for a lock-in in the ZYN?

The American Red Cross urges residents to check their smoke alarms.

“Seven people lose their lives every day in home fires in the United States,” the Red Cross said.

“Home fires kill more people in a typical year than all natural disasters combined, but working smoke detectors can cut the risk of dying in a home fire in half,” said Tim O’Toole, officer disaster area. “Test your smoke alarms to help prevent tragedy in your home. The sooner an alarm warns you of a fire, the sooner you can get out.

In October, local Red Cross volunteers responded to help more than 340 people in northern Ohio affected by nearly 100 home fires, O’Toole said. This accounts for most of the more than 60,000 disasters the Red Cross responds to each year across the country.

A passenger on a Tel Aviv-Bangkok flight caused a stir last week by accidentally setting fire to the plane’s toilet.

The passenger was smoking a banned cigarette in the lavatory of El Al flight LY81 on Friday when the plane’s smoke detector went off, the airline confirmed.

Panicked, the customer tried to stuff the smoking cigarette butt into the trash can; however, being full of paper towels, the bin soon caught fire.

In a statement, El Al reported that the crew was prompted to burst in with fire extinguishers and put out the small fire midway through the 11-hour flight.

The plane was able to continue its route normally and the crew did not contact law enforcement in Thailand to deal with the passenger upon arrival.

“A passenger on a flight to Bangkok was caught smoking in the bathroom of the plane, and it was feared that a fire could break out in the cabin.

“The crew and captains handled the incident immediately and cautiously using the dedicated fire extinguishers,” the airline’s statement said.

“The flight continued as planned and landed safely at Bangkok airport,” an El Al spokesman said. Israel timeadding that no damage was done to the plane.

“The passenger has been notified and the issue has been forwarded for further review by our legal department.”

The in-flight smoker may still face legal consequences upon returning to Israel.

Smoking has been banned on most airlines around the world since the year 2000; US airlines first banned the habit on short-haul flights between 1988 and 1990, followed by all international and domestic flights from 2000.

In 1994, Canada was the first country to ban smoking on all flights operated by its carriers; Meanwhile, banned China did not officially ban its airline’s flights until October 2017.

Virgin Atlantic banned smoking on all its flights in 1995, with British Airways enforcing the rule in 1998, after first testing smoke-free flights in 1990.

However, the permanently lit “no smoking” signs still fail to deter some flyers: in September an Australian passenger was filmed being escorted off a plane to light up.

In the same month, a Wizz Air flight was interrupted when a passenger ‘insisted on smoking cannabis’ after four-hour delay on the tarmac.

Meanwhile, a tragic Egyptair plane crash in 2016 was allegedly caused by one of the pilots lighting a cigarette in the cockpit.

A report published in April 2022 claimed that Egyptian pilots regularly smoked in the cockpit and that the practice had not been banned by the airline at the time of the accident.

  • Researchers claim that e-cigarettes and tobacco cigarettes have similar negative effects on a person’s cardiovascular system.
  • They add that smoking and vaping at the same time even have serious effects on heart health.
  • They say vaping and smoking cause respiratory tract irritation.

Two studies published today – one in humans, the other in rats – show similar cardiovascular effects of cigarettes and e-cigarettes.

The results also indicate that smoking and vaping together produce even more serious heart health problems.

The researchers reported that the effects on blood vessel function are likely caused by respiratory tract irritation from inhaling a foreign substance, rather than specific components of cigarette smoke or e-cigarette vapor. .

The studies were published in the peer-reviewed journal of the American Heart Association Arteriosclerosis, thrombosis and vascular biology.

“The goal of this project was to determine why an increasing number of inhaled tobacco products, including combustible cigarettes, heated tobacco products, and e-cigarettes, all impair endothelial function despite fundamental differences between these products,” said Matthew L. SpringerPhD, principal investigator of both studies and professor of medicine in the division of cardiology at the University of California, San Francisco, in a statement.

“Thousands of chemicals have been identified in tobacco smoke, some of which are also present in e-cigarette aerosols, either as the original ingredient or as a chemical reaction product of the heating process” , said Dr. Springer. “We sought to find which specific component of e-cigarette smoke or vapor may be responsible for interfering with the ability of blood vessels to function effectively.”

Cigarettes and e-cigarettes cause endothelial dysfunction, the inability of large blood vessels to open wide enough to supply enough blood to the heart and other tissues. This condition may be an early predictor of cardiovascular disease.

The Springer Team reported that the impairment of endothelial function by cigarette smoke is not caused by a specific constituent of the smoke but by the vagal entry of the airways.

In rats studyarterial flow-mediated dilation (FMD) – the ability of blood vessels to widen – was measured before and after exposure to smoke from four types of traditional combustible cigarettes: conventional nicotine, reduced nicotine, conventional nicotine with added menthol, and reduced nicotine with added menthol.

Menthol is added to many tobacco products and can decrease the irritation caused by smoking and can play a major role in facilitating nicotine addiction.

The study found that blood vessel dilation was reduced by all four types of cigarettes, ranging from 20% to 46%. Higher nicotine levels were associated with a larger decrease in foot and mouth disease and menthol was associated with a smaller decrease in foot and mouth disease.

Springer said that shouldn’t suggest that menthol is a beneficial additive in smoking and vaping products, because tampering was still significant and menthol has other harmful effects.

“This study confirms, once again, what we doctors have known for years: that smoking cigarettes is harmful to the lungs and heart,” Dr. Robert Goldberg, a pulmonologist at Providence Mission Hospital in Southern California, told Healthline. “While vaping was initially considered a safer option to help people quit smoking, the ingredients in aerosols have not been evaluated by the United States Food and Drug Administration.

“And, e-cigarette liquid, when heated, is a powerful vasoconstrictor or blood pressure-raising drug and delivers nicotine extremely quickly to your body. This creates a serious health risk to your lungs and heart,” he added.

Goldberg said the original thinking was that vaping was safer because someone wasn’t breathing in harmful smoke.

“But we don’t know the exact chemical makeup of the vaping liquid,” he explained. “What we do know is that other ingredients and chemical compounds present in the liquid pose their own health risks. We are only beginning to understand the toxic side effects that breathing e-cigarette vapors can have on our lungs and our heart.

The rats were also exposed to two main gases found in smoke and aerosols, as well as clean carbon nanoparticles, to assess effects on blood vessel dilation.

Carbon gases and particles showed similar weathering to whole tobacco smoke, although they represent completely different chemical and physical components of smoke.

“We were surprised to find that it is not a specific inhaled foreign body that causes adverse cardiovascular effects. It’s the fact that some kind of irritant is inhaled in the first place, whatever it was,” Springer said. “All inhalants are likely to have similar adverse effects on vascular function.”

This could mean there is less difference in danger between vaping and smoking, Patricia FolanRN, director of the clinical program at the Northwell Health Center for Tobacco Control, told Healthline.

“Many adults have been documented to use both combustible cigarettes and e-cigarettes,” she said. “According to the study, it poses an even greater health risk than using either alone.”

“This information is important to share with the public who may feel they are helping themselves by reducing their consumption of regular cigarettes and replacing a vaping product while using both at the same time,” Folan said.

dr. Thomas Yadegar, a pulmonologist and ICU medical director at Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center in California, told Healthline that “any type of inhaled agent, regardless of origin, has an effect on the blood vessels in the airways. . This is the fundamental premise of the administration of inhaled medications.

“While inhalers and nebulizers seek to expand the airways via blood vessels, inhaling smoke, fumes, dust, or other environmental triggers can trigger a cascade of inflammation,” Yadegar said.

Springer said the absence of a specific toxin responsible for vascular impairment means regulators cannot rely on banning specific ingredients to avoid adverse effects from inhalants.

The second study found that prolonged vaping and smoking both cause changes in the blood that affect endothelial function, albeit in different ways.

“Our results suggest that vaping, although not smoking combustible cigarettes, causes changes in the blood that increase the potential for blood vessel leakage and that both smoking and vaping cause changes in the blood that lead to a endothelial dysfunction and an increased risk of future cardiovascular events in otherwise healthy people,” Springer said.

“It is important that regulators, clinicians and the public realize that vaping is not safe,” he added. “Smoking and vaping may have similar harmful cardiovascular effects, but each condition causes potentially harmful effects that the other does not. These differences indicate that the use of two products, i.e. smoking cigarettes fuels and also using e-cigarette products, may actually be worse for vascular health than smoking or vaping alone.

Doctors say that, whatever your interpretation of the studies, quitting smoking and vaping are the best ways to manage the danger.

We know that the evidence-based way to quit smoking is through offering “quitting coach” advice combined with nicotine replacement therapy (eg patch, gum, lozenge, etc.) sold at your local pharmacies in free sale. Mary Martinasekrespiratory therapist and associate professor of public health at the University of Tampa in Florida, Healthline told Healthline.

“This method is the only evidence-based approach to quitting smoking,” Martinasek said. “Smokefree.gov detail this information. Many states, like Florida, offer these products for free and free “quitting coach” advice.“

“If it’s for a teenager, the American Academy of Pediatrics advised doctors to prescribe nicotine replacement therapies to people under the age of 18,” she added.

Seoul is considering imposing drinking and smoking bans in Han River parks, the city government announced on Sunday. But the plan could fail if a backlash ensues.

The Seoul city government attempted to make Han River parks smoke-free seven years ago, but failed due to strong public backlash.

Last year, the city government also tried to impose a drinking ban in riverside parks, but the local government also made no progress, even after a year-long discussion.

The Seoul city government said it would conduct further investigations and gather opinions to see if a social consensus could be reached, before deciding whether it would actually impose the bans.

To combat smoking, a total of 11 designated smoking areas would first be set up in Han River parks, a move taken by the city of Seoul following complaints from tobacco advocates.

According to a survey conducted by the Seoul city government this year, 9 out of 10 people support a smoking ban in Han River parks.

However, enforcing the smoking ban in the parks would still take time, said the office responsible for managing riverside parks. The office, under the city government, said it would approach the issue more carefully than it did seven years ago so that its plan does not backfire and end. not by failure.

Efforts by the Seoul city government to make Han River parks alcohol-free may face strong opposition as no public consensus has formed on the issue.

Seoul’s attempt to ban outdoor drinking in riverside parks was first raised last year, after mounting calls followed the death of a university student who drank near the Han River last April.

Since then, little progress has been made to ban outdoor drinking in the region.

The Seoul city government said there are legal grounds to impose a ban on outdoor drinking in riverside parks – a favorite pastime of many in Seoul – but would have to go through a series consultations before taking a last call.

In June last year, the National Health Promotion Act was revised to allow the drinking ban to be enacted. Prior to this, riverside parks were classified as green space under river management laws, which prevented the government from imposing such bans as it can in other city parks.

Currently, the existing ordinance restricts and penalizes only drinkers who cause trouble in areas of the park.
