History backs some who are concerned this is a wolf-in-sheeps-clothing routine
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/01/2013 -- According to new reports, British American Tobacco is aiming to turn electronic cigarettes into medicines in the United Kingdom. That is a welcome move to many, but leave a rather bitter taste in the mouth for others.
In the 1950s, when it was only just becoming clear how dangerous tobacco was and the industry was in a panic, cigarette-makers came up with “safer smokes”. Filter-hipped, low-tar and “light” cigarettes were all part of a movement to remove the perils of smoking.
The reality of the matter was that the cigarettes were not safe at all. Smokers inhaled deeply or simply smoked more of each of the products, while scientists later found none truly had a strong advantage when it came to health. What was worse was that the industry knew that fact, and internal documents seized later proved they promoted safer cigarettes in order to discourage individuals from quitting.
When one looks at this history of smoke-and-mirror tactics, one can see why there are many who would be suspicious of the companies looking to promote electronic cigarettes. At the end of 2012, British American Tobacco bought up a company named CN Creative, which creates “electronic cigarettes”. It is now planning to utilize the UK authorities to be granted recognition a particular product as a medicine.
And while there are those who believe this may be history repeating itself, and that the companies should not be trusted, it likely is not such a simple case of deceit. Certainly it is a moral gray area to attempt to help cure a disease which you in fact started; however, the fact of the matter is that, as of now, electronic cigarettes could be seen as a safer alternative. The question will be whether or not we find out in the future that electronic cigarettes are also unsafe, and whether or not the tobacco company knew about it if it occurs.
There is currently growing evidence that these e-cigs are safer than the standard smoking. The seem to be especially useful for the hard-core smoker who has failed to quit, or simply does not even want to quit the habit in th least.
Another important question is how clear is it that the e-cigs are better than current available quitting alternatives. Especially given the fact they are being promoted by the tobacco company, are the other alternatives away to punish the companies that started the mess in the first place.
