Heads Up – News – Updates 4.18.2019

Call to Action update in Florida.  FDA-funded research concludes it’s better for public health to encourage parents who smoke to switch to vaping than focus on minors experimenting. A different study finds “pleasant smells like chocolate” help stop cigarette cravings, while yet another finds higher strengths of nicotine and dual use is a good thing when using NRT.

CASAA on T21:

FL – Keep Vaping Legal for ALL Adults Who Smoke

THE MORE YOU KNOW: Researchers suggest higher doses of nicotine and dual use (using NRT before quitting smoking) has small but higher odds of success. Meanwhile, ANTZ continue to decry higher nicotine and dual use of #vaping products with 2x efficacy.

Two NRTs Better than One

RESEARCH: FDA/NIH-funded study finds strong evidence minors who try vapor products before or instead of #smoking, or have parents who switched to #vaping, are far less likely to smoke. Recommends getting parents to switch rather than focus on teen vaping.

THE MORE YOU KNOW: Research suggests SMELL of chocolate, apple, peppermint, lemon or vanilla is effective for helping adults who smoke fight cravings, but according to ANTZ, the TASTE of those same flavors in #vaping products aren’t helping adults quit?

Sniffing pleasant aroma could reduce the urge of smoking
