CALL OF 100 PHYSICIANS IN FAVOUR OF ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES

Initiated and coordinated by Dr. Philippe Presles
Tobaccologist


As physicians and health professionals we see patients severely affected by tobacco smoking daily, many of which will die or be disabled despite our daily care. This is the most serious problem of public health in the world. However, we see further expand the use of electronic cigarettes that clearly help many smokers to turn the page of tobacco. But misconceptions have emerged that limit their diffusion, while its potential in terms of public health is real.

It is therefore appropriate to say that :

  • This is the combustion of tobacco that is harmful to health of smokers, not nicotine. It is well established that nicotine replacement therapy is not harmful to health of smokers who want to quit. The same is true for the nicotine in e-cigarettes;

  • The main toxins produced by the combustion of tobacco, present in the smoke, are the carbon monoxide or CO, responsible for myocardial infarction and stroke, carcinogens from tar, and fine particles resulting in chronic obstructive bronchitis. The dangers of electronic cigarettes are considerably much lower than those of tobacco, since their vapor contains no CO, no tar, and no fine solid particles;

  • The characteristics of the electronic cigarettes should always be compared to those of the conventional cigarette, and if doubts and debates on the perfect long-term safety of some of its components persist, they must be opposed to the absolute certainty of harmfulness of tobacco;

  • Electronic cigarettes can be recommended to all smokers who want to quit smoking, and can be used in combination with patches or with other smoking cessation therapies, if its use is not sufficient to maintain abstinence. E-cigarettes are less addictive than conventional cigarettes, and thus helps to a rapid or gradual tobacco smoking cessation.

We therefore recommend to our colleagues to actively learn about electronic cigarettes, which are a new public health issue in our common fight against tobacco-related diseases. The report and expert opinion on the e-cigarettes from The French Office for Tobacco Prevention (OFT, May 2013 ) is in this respect a remarkable synthesis : http://www.ofta-asso.fr/docatel/Rapport_e-cigarette_VF_1.pdf

We recommend that research to improve e-cigarettes and e-liquids continue actively, so as to satisfy a growing number of smokers and effectively assist them in smoking cessation. To this end, we support the position of the French authorities not to make e-cigarettes as a medicine, and so to leave the opportunity for research to all potentially concerned industry, to improve safety and efficacy of these products.
