Harm reduction beyond e-cigarettes: how do heated tobacco products compare?
Time: 12:10 - 12:25
Date: Thursday 16th November 2023
Recent device and flavour restrictions announced by various governments will likely reduce e-cigarette use and may encourage some smokers and ex-smokers to switch to alternative harm reduction products, including heated tobacco products. This talk will present latest research from individual- and population-level studies on the effectiveness and safety of these products compared with e-cigarettes to assess their potential impact on public health should shifts in the harm reduction market occur.
