Η Κίνα σκοπεύει να πάρει μέτρα για να ρυθμίσει την αγορά των e cigarettes, καθώς ανησυχεί για την health των καταναλωτών και φυσικά γιατί οι πωλήσεις των ηλεκτρονικών τσιγάρων αυξάνονται συνεχώς τα τελευταία χρόνια.
Its national health committee China has launched an investigation into e-cigarettes and plans to issue new legislation for the industry, health authority chief Mao Qunan said at a press conference this weekteam.
The effort came as Chinese start-up e-cigarette companies seem to have "escaped" in their quest to attract attention to the world's largest smoker market.
Vaping suppliers στην Κίνα είναι αυτή τη στιγμή και μη γνωστά εργαστήρια. Τουλάχιστον 20 εταιρείες ηλεκτρονικού cigarettey in China have increased their funding since the beginning of 2019, according to data collected by Crunchbase.
All of these companies are pitted against the state-owned monopoly China Tobacco, which is the world's largest cigarette maker and supplies the government colossal tax revenue.
Some researchers support the use of e cigarettes can help adults stop smoking while others have shown that electronic cigarettes are just as addictive as traditional cigarettes.
The other major controversy is the growing use of electronic cigarettes among adolescents, which has led to California's ban on sales of these products.
China, on the other hand, is reportedly implementing more controls in the new smoking technology. Research shows that the heated aerosol from e-cigarettes can contain “many harmful substances” and that additives in e-cigarettes can “create health risks” such as said Mao. It also said that controversial nicotine level labeling could lead to poor smoking behavior and lax device standards could lead to an explosion of battery and other security incidents.
Like the US, China has also seen a worryingly high participation rate among young people, which is another reason that pushes Beijing to keep industry under control. The use of electronic cigarettes by children, adolescents and young adults has proven to be unsafe because nicotine, which is highly addictive, can damage brain development.
In May, China drew up a set of standards (PDF in Chinese) for electronic cigarettes that determine the level of nicotine, the type of additives, accessories and designs allowed in battery-powered smoking devices.
