L'OMS manoeuvre contre la cigarette électronique.

Un groupe d'universitaires britanniques renommés en appelle à une meilleure compréhension des avantages potentiels de l'e-cigarette dans la réduction de la pandémie de tabagisme. Cet appel solennel est lancé avant la 7ème session de la Conférence des Parties (COP) de la Convention-cadre pour la lutte antitabac (CCLAT) . Il s'agit là d'un traité mondial de santé publique qui devrait être signé au terme d'une rencontre organisée en Inde du 7 au 12 novembre 2016. Une rencontre cruciale quant à l'avenir (officiel) du levier cigarette électronique dans la réduction des risques tabagiques.

Menace plutôt que chance

A la veille de cette rencontre l'Organisation mondiale de la santé a publié un rapport sur ce thème 1. Un rapport que dénoncent de manière argumentée les pragmatiques spécialistes universitaires britanniques 2. Ce document n'est pas, selon eux, équitable. Leur critique examine chaque élément du rapport de l'OMS et identifie les lacunes dans la façon dont la preuve est présentée et des problèmes avec la façon dont le rapport pourrait être interprété interprétations de nature à encourager les Etats à adopter des restrictions excessives sur les cigarettes électroniques qui pourraient saper les efforts visant à réduire le tabagisme...

Un nouveau rapport de l'OMS ne parvient pas à évaluer correctement les éléments de preuve sur les e-cigarettes et pourrait même saper les efforts internationaux pour réduire le tabagisme, dit un groupe d'universitaires basés au Royaume-Uni.

UK academics are calling for better understanding of the potential benefits of e-cigarettes to reducing the smoking pandemic ahead of an international gathering of countries that have signed the World Health Organisation's Framework Convention for Tobacco Control. The 7th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP) of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), a global public health treaty, will be held in Mumbai, India from 7th-12th November 2016. At this meeting, Parties to the treaty (countries and other jurisdictions) will discuss whether similar policy measures recommended to reduce tobacco use should be applied to e-cigarettes. In advance of the COP the World Health Organisation published a report about Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS) and Electronic Non-Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDDS), also known as e-cigarettes. This aimed to summarise the evidence about these devices. Academics from the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies, a UKCRC Public Health Research Centre of Excellence, have today published a robust critique of the WHO report setting out a series of concerns about the content of the document which, in their view, does not fairly represent existing evidence on e-cigarettes. Their critique examines each element of the WHO report and identifies flaws in the way the evidence is presented and problems with how the report could be interpreted, potentially encouraging countries to adopt excessive restrictions on e-cigarettes which could undermine efforts to reduce smoking. The UKCTAS critique points to evidence set out in the recent Royal College of Physician's' report Nicotine without Smoke' and subsequent research which recognise that e-cigarettes are far less harmful than smoking and that smokers who find it difficult to stop should be encouraged to use them. The WHO report fails to accurately present what is already known about e-cigarettes. In particular, it: positions e-cigarettes as a threat rather than an opportunity to reduce smoking; fails to accurately quantify any risks of e-cigarettes compared with smoking; misrepresents existing evidence about any harms to bystanders; discounts the fact that e-cigarettes are helping smokers to quit; does not recognise the place of some promotion of e-cigarettes to encourage smokers to switch to these less harmful products; fails to understand that the flavours in e-cigarettes are useful for people trying to stop smoking; mischaracterises the current e-cigarette market and appears to support very restrictive policies on e-cigarettes without including any good policy analysis. In addition, the WHO report does not acknowledge that significant restrictions on e-cigarettes could lead to unintended consequences, including increases in smoking. Finally, the researchers point out that the WHO briefing is based on four unpublished papers which are still undergoing peer review, which does not allow for open, transparent scrutiny of the evidence. This does not, therefore, provide a good basis for policy making and risks undermining rather than promoting the aims of the FCTC, which is a treaty that was designed to help countries reduce smoking rates and save lives.

WHO's anti-vaping scientific castle of cards toppled

The UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies (UKCTAS) has produced a devastating critique of the WHO paper on Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems' (e-cigarettes or vaping products to everyone else). The paper by WHO is for the 7th Conference of the Parties to WHO's tobacco control treaty, the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, (FCTC COP-7) which will be held in Delhi 7-12 November, 2016.
