MHLW think after 3 years before the Tokyo Olympics, it is necessary to strengthen the management of passive smoking, is studying the introduction of new science with the punishment measures of tube regulations. Among them, do not use for combustion, electronic cigarettes contain nicotine inhalation of heating steam, the province can not be denied that its influence on human health, and will consider the same as the control object of cigarettes.

The province will consider the prohibition of the use of electronic cigarettes in hospitals, schools and other facilities, and prohibit the use of restaurants in principle, but the establishments in smoking areas do not act as objects of regulation. Due to the effect of heating type electronic smoke on human health, the data are not sufficient at present, and will be re evaluated when sufficient data are collected in the future.

In the future, at the same time the labour ministry will make an agreement with the Liberal Democratic Party to develop new measures to prevent passive smoking, if earlier, will be submitted to Congress next year on health in general promotion law amendment.

First round financing of American electronic cigarette manufacturers

Since then, Juul focuses on cigarette alternatives, while Pax makes a mixture of nicotine and a variety of plants. Last week, Juul hired Kevin Burns as chief executive.

According to the day before a document submitted to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the company has grown from 23 investors to raise $111 million 500 thousand, still need to raise $38 million 500 thousand. A Juul spokesman confirmed the application, but refused to provide more details.

Juul’s flat rectangular devices, such as the shape of the U disk, were listed in the middle of 2015, exceeding the similar devices of the tobacco giant. Bonnie Herzog, a Wells Fargo analyst, quoted Nelson’s first 4 weeks’ data in a report last month. He pointed out that Juul controls 32.9% of the market share, followed by Anglo American Tobacco 27.4% and Austria 15.2%.

According to Nelson’s data, the November report showed that Juul’s income increased by nearly 700% last year to $225 million. The total amount of electronic smoke increased by 40% to $1 billion 160 million.

Juul claims that its mission is to provide &ldquo for 1 billion smokers worldwide; better replace combustible cigarettes to eliminate the use of cigarettes.

The former CEO of Goldman Sachs revealed to CNBC in October that the company was trying to achieve its mission because the supply was limited. He said the company produces 20 million products a month, including devices and smoke bombs, but it does not produce nicotine sticks.

Forbes magazine: heating no burning tobacco: a new wave of damage to the revolution

    this technological reform and industry development have created a win-win situation for enterprises and smokers. The role of HnB in reducing tobacco related hazards is not only reflected in the theoretical level of technology, but also has commercial cases. For example, Philip of the Moelis Company is not heating combustion products iQOS with its easy to use, no ash and smoke, and fully simulated the feeling of smoking and other characteristics, is currently in Japan, Portugal, Italy, Romania and Russia are greatly welcomed by consumers. Since the second quarter of 2016, iQOS has gained 12% market share after its launch in Japan. Bonnie Herzog, an analyst at Wells Fargo, is optimistic about the prospects of the non burning (HnB) products: “ it is estimated that by 2025, the iQOS of Philip Moelis Company will replace 30% of the traditional cigarette business in the developed market.

    in fact, from the last century since 80s, the heating is not burning (HnB) concept has been in development, but only in recent years successfully commercialized, innovation and competition to stimulate a new generation of heat without burning (HnB) products, and these products have been changed in the tobacco industry pattern.

    however, the non burning products have not been able to spread throughout the world, and the pace of progress in each market is different, for example, the American smokers are still waiting. The new non combustion products must be put into the market through the approval of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for tobacco products. Whether American smokers can reduce the risk of smoking by heating non – burning products depends on whether FDA can approve the listing of such products.

American scholars suggest that regulators refuse to apply for iQOS low risk products

    according to the introduction, in the submission of the recommendations to the regulatory authorities of the government of the United States, the researchers pointed out that, so far, Philip · Maurice international tobacco company did not show that consumers in the use of heat without burning products will greatly reduce the hazards and diseases and tobacco related. In fact, the US Food and drug administration has decided to postpone the pre market filing time of such new products to 2022.

The US Food and drug administration again postponed the application for the listing of steam products

    according to the introduction, the family smoking and tobacco control act, issued by the US government many years ago, has given the US Food and drug administration the right to manage the production, distribution and sale of all kinds of tobacco products.

    in May 2016, the US Food and Drug Administration decided to include all tobacco products in its regulatory range, including electronic nicotine and other electronic nicotine transport devices (ENDS). At the same time, the bill also prohibits the sale of steam products to anyone under 18 years of age. Unless their products are listed before February 2007, it is required that steam producers should submit pre market applications before launching all steam products. However, this requirement has caused heavy cost burden to tobacco merchants, because the cost of each steam product is expensive.

    according to the regulations of the US Food and drug administration, it is obvious that only large tobacco companies can undertake the cost of pre listing applications, and even after the application is submitted, they cannot guarantee the approval of the US Food and drug administration.

&emsp,   in this case, the US Food and Drug Administration decided to postpone the submission date of such steam products and non combustion products before August 8, 2022. In order to give the tobacco merchants sufficient preparation time.

Traditional tobacco? Electronic smoke? Heat not burning smoke? Look at the difference between the Japanese and the Japanese

On the same day, according to Japan’s largest news agency “Yomiuri Shimbun” reported about whether the heating is not in accordance with the traditional cigarette burning tobacco treatment, the recent Tokyo municipal government public collection of public opinion, after receiving 2000 against the heating does not burn as feedback traditional cigarette legal constraints, the government of Tokyo said that they can not ignore the 2000 public opinion, and because of the hazards of tobacco and the so-called heat without burning is not completely confirmed by science, and should put heating combustion products and traditional tobacco products differently. According to the analysis of the report of Philip Moelis Company, which sells the non burning products &ldquo and iQOS, the steam released from heated tobacco does not reduce the content of harmful components by 9 compared with that of cigarette smoke. Japan’s tobacco companies (JT), which sells the same products &ldquo, Ploomtech, also said: &ldquo, there is almost no anxiety substance that endangering health, so it should not be compared with traditional cigarettes.

As the capital of Japan, Tokyo has set up the regulations on child passive smoking prevention in October, which has been established and implemented in 2017. In order to cope with the Tokyo Olympic Games, the Chiba City, close to Tokyo, has also formulated the regulations on the prevention of passive smoking. In the city, macho, the village of various levels of the implementation of passive smoking prevention regulations, as well as Hokkaido Mei Bei City, but not for restaurants and Custom Stores.

The passive smoking prevention regulations, because the public familiar with traditional cigarette harm to health, so agree more. However, there are two major controversies on whether new types of tobacco, such as heating, should be treated differently, have two main controversies.

1. is it harmful to the health of non – burning tobacco products?

2. is it still harmful to passive smoking?

In this regard, Ishida Masahiko, a common researcher at Yokohama Municipal University, Japan, proposed a master of medicine.

“ the basis of the passive smoking prevention regulations is to limit the health hazards of cigarette smoke to non smoked people while allowing free smoking. That is to say, if the smoke and steam coming out of heated tobacco will do the same harm to health, it should be restricted like cigarettes. If not, the heating of the non – burning tobacco should be excluded from the restricted object.

According to the heat without burning the existence of the same harm, although the volume is larger still are the major tobacco companies, but public health researchers and research institutions of heating combustion products for human health hazards started from long ago. At present, in the analysis of heat of combustion products produced by the paper, the mainstream is the Swiss researchers do not represent the product of iQOS type combustion heating views, according to the paper, iQOS produced by nicotine, formaldehyde, toxic acrolein, about 84% less than traditional cigarettes.

But only the traditional tobacco and heating without burning tobacco compared to discuss the health effects to users, is still not comprehensive, not for people who smoked any tobacco could not be called a completely healthy, but for not smoking or not to quit smoking smokers, there is no doubt that the heating is not to combustion model of tobacco products can reduce the harm of smoking this behavior.

Ishida Masahiko believes that carcinogens are actually ubiquitous, and there is no completely healthy world without any carcinogens. Therefore, many times we need to set safety threshold for different substances. Suppose that the death risk of cigarettes is 1\/400 (about ten smokers a day, four hundred of them will die from smoking), and the risk of passive smoking is 1\/1000 (one thousand of all passive smokers will suffer from cancer). According to this assumption, heating the non – burning product obviously greatly reduces the harm to the population.

Presumably, the Japanese people’s smoking addiction is really large enough. In order to smoke and health, they really have taken various means and attempts. Do not know if we can learn from them or learn from them?

The EU health commissioner warned that the tobacco product directive was unable to regulate new tobacco products

Will electronic cigarettes be the cause of smoking?

    electronic cigarettes are a non – burning alternative to smoke, which contain batteries, nicotine boxes, and sprayers. The user can breathe in the vaporized nicotine and exhale the white mist. According to personal preferences, chocolate or mint can be added to the pipe to produce a special taste. They are generally believed to be healthier and safer than ordinary cigarettes, because they do not contain tobacco and users do not breathe in the toxic smoke. But does electronic cigarettes provide a way to reduce smoking, or will it lead to more people addicted to it?

    Canadian researchers obtained data from a group of nearly forty-five thousand Canadian high school students, who reported their use of cigarettes and electronic cigarettes themselves. The data also included follow-up to the Ontario and Alberta provinces a year later. In this age group to explore is crucial for understanding the smoking initiation, because according to the researchers, most smokers from the beginning of youth, which makes us feel very worried, because in the last ten years we managed to bring the number of smokers began to decline.

    research shows that: on the personal level, the electronic cigarette may have a causal relationship with smoking, because they can contact nicotine earlier or more exposure to environmental risk factors. The biggest concern now is that teenagers who have used electronic cigarettes, in the long run, will be dependent on nicotine and become addicted. And eating real cigarettes may be their final result.

Indonesia is proposed to restrict the sale of electronic tobacco materials

The decision has been opposed by an increasing number of electronic cigarette users. But trade minister Enggartisto Lukita soon provided a solution. He thought that electronic smokers became &ldquo instead of regular smokers. The move is quite puzzling, and many experts have claimed that they think the effect of electronic cigarettes is not as harmful as traditional cigarettes.

This inevitably led to another discussion about the tobacco industry’s government power in Indonesia, which is the only country in the Asia Pacific region that has not formally signed the WHO Framework Convention on tobacco control.

Dr. Widyastuti Soerojo, head of the tobacco control department of the Indonesia Public Health Association, said: “ the tobacco industry is very powerful here.
