ABSTRACT

Korean Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco (KSRNT Chairman: Baek Yoo-jin, a professor at Hallym University Medical School), had encountered the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s epidemiological report on the epidemics of an E-cig related lung disease(Sept. 17), and we are very concerned about the promotion of e-cigarettes (including devices) and reckless advertising activities in the blind spots and the increase in number of e-cigarette users (especially in the young population, including adolescents). We strongly urge the National Assembly and the government to come up with effective policies to strengthen the regulation of tobacco products, including e-cigarettes (including devices).
