By David G. SmithThe Washington TimesDecember 12, 2016, 10:51:21When it comes the smoking of cigarettes, the science is clear, according to Dr. David Gans, director of the tobacco control program at the National Cancer Institute.
He says it’s much less complicated than many smokers imagine, and the science isn’t as clear-cut as the public might think.
The evidence, he said, is compelling that the harmful effects of cigarette smoke are well known and that cigarettes can cause serious health problems.
“It’s not that we can’t figure out how to make a safer product,” Gans said in an interview.
Gans, who is the senior director of research and policy development for the National Institutes of Health, has been working with the tobacco industry for more than three decades, helping them to develop and market cigarettes. “
We don’t know what’s in it, and we don’t want to know.”
Gans, who is the senior director of research and policy development for the National Institutes of Health, has been working with the tobacco industry for more than three decades, helping them to develop and market cigarettes.
The industry has developed dozens of products, including flavored cigarettes, e-cigarettes, hookah pipes, eCigarettes, vaporizers and hookahs.
But no product has emerged as a winner.
Gans said that there are numerous problems with the current design of cigarettes.
He points to the use of cigarette shells, which can create more nicotine in the smoker’s lungs.
The shells are also not the most efficient way to burn tobacco.
Gan said there are also a number of other problems, including a lack of knowledge about the impact of the products on people.
He noted that studies show that e-cigarette use is associated with a reduction in the number of cigarettes smoked, which could make smoking more attractive to younger smokers.
The industry has been lobbying the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to remove the ban on marketing tobacco products that contain nicotine, including e-cigs.
That has led to a stalemate.
The FDA said on Friday that it would not rule on the ban until it is certified by the National Academy of Sciences.
The academy has said that it is willing to consider the science of e-cig use in determining the safety and effectiveness of the devices.
The issue of the e-Cigarette industry is the subject of an upcoming study published in the journal Addiction, which will examine the health effects of vaping and other nicotine-containing products.
The study will use the results of a pilot study of electronic cigarettes.
Researchers from the University of California, San Francisco, found that nicotine in electronic cigarettes, especially at the higher levels found in e-liquid, can significantly increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and death.
The researchers also found that users of eCigs who are overweight or obese are at greater risk for developing cardiovascular disease.
The study was funded by the U,S.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The CDC declined to comment on the research.
The tobacco industry has also been working to push the FDA to lift the ban.
The U. of T. is the only U. S. university to endorse a position that tobacco is a public health threat.
The American Lung Association has said it would continue to fight the ban and would be happy to continue to advocate on behalf of those who do.
“We are fighting for the right to continue smoking cigarettes,” said Dr. Andrew Zimbardo, the associate director of medical affairs for the American Lung Foundation.
“This is a big fight for the lungs.”
Zimbardo said the study is a good first step, but it’s important to get more data on the health impact of vaping.
“The more we know, the more we can do to help people quit,” he said.
Zimbardi said the FDA’s decision to not issue a ruling on the eCigan tobacco ban is disappointing, because it means that vaping is going to be legal in the U of T campus.
He added that it’s also important to make sure that vaping products are not used to boost nicotine levels.
“Vaping is a really dangerous product, but this is just a beginning, and this is not a big issue in Canada,” Zimbardi told The Associated Press.
“They can regulate it, they can ban it.
They can regulate how much it is, they have a very good system.
So we hope that we’ll see a ban eventually.”
