Foreign aid disasters of our time.
This is well worth a read. About 70% of the opposition to alternatives to tobacco at the WHO is funded by the UK Department of Health.

The greatest part of the stupid in the iniquitous Tobacco Products Directive came from the UK.

RE: Foreign aid disasters of our time.
Oooh, that's an angry thing to read alright.

"The evidence that such alternatives to smoking are extraordinarily successful is not hard to find. In the US the rise of vaping has been pivotal in High School smoking rates halving in just six years. In Japan heat not burn devices have seen cigarette sales fall 27% in just two years while in Norway oral snus has led to smoking among young women plummeting from 30% to an astonishing 1% since 2000.

Yet the WHO opposes them all."

It's a sponsored article, I'd love to know who sponsored it.

"In the US the rise of vaping has been pivotal in High School smoking rates halving in just six years."

That single line right there explains all of the massive push to vilify JUUL. It has nothing to do with concern of teen vaping. It is all about concern over the loss of now and future customer$.
