    So when the black market makes an illicit cartridge / heatstick for the IQOS, will it be ban in the USA too?

    The thing that irked me the most in the article, was the quote about "95% less harmful". I have responded on the BusinessTech Facebook page as follows:


    "BusinessTech - your article quotes PMSA'S MD, Marcelo Nico, as saying that IQOS "reduces the level of harmful chemicals by 95% compared to cigarettes". Scientific research seems to disagree. Tobacco Control seems to disagree. To summarize their findings

    "While IQOS may expose users to lower levels of some toxicants than cigarettes, they also expose users to higher levels of other toxicants. Likewise, IQOS likely exposes users to lower risks of some diseases and higher risks of others. PMI’s research, confirmed by independent research, also highlights the fact that reduced exposure claims are misunderstood as reduced harm claims. These facts raise serious concerns that HTP and their marketing will harm youth and young adults and undermine cessation among smokers without providing health benefits to smokers who use them."

    The above was quoted from here: https://tobacco.ucsf.edu/sites/g/files/tkssra4661/f/wysiwyg/Full supplement-final proof.pdf

    Thanks for your reply to them.
    I see they are also trying to paint vaping and smoking in the same light
