All right so with all of that said let's talk about the IQOS. You’re probably wondering what is the IQOS? Or is the IQOS better than smoking? Or IQOS vs Smoking Vs Vaping?
So I was a cigarette smoker for about eighteen years of my life. Way back in 2009 I discovered this crummy little electronic cigarette from China. I started using it and it was a little bit of a rough transition but eventually I completely made the switch from combustible tobacco cigarettes to far less harmful vapor products. Millions and millions of people around the world share that very similar story. The real success story in switching to vaping is that it's a tobacco harm reduction tool which means that it's not inherently safe or 100% safe it was designed to be less harmful than the deadly combustible tobacco cigarettes that are currently available on the market. So I want us all a little bit to keep in mind the harm reduction aspect of this because much like the liquid nicotine vapor products were all used to the IQOS is a form of tobacco harm reduction the FDA recently approved. The IQOS is to be sold in the United States. Although it's not really available anywhere just yet their only test market is in Atlanta, Georgia. They have an IQOS store set up in Atlanta, Georgia where you can go in and try the products.
Even though the IQOS did go through PMTA; the pre-market tobacco application; in order to be allowed to be sold on the market; the FDA makes it very clear that the IQOS is not an fda-approved product.
But the FDA themselves also do recognize the difference between combustion and heat not burn. Combustion is the enemy the FDA says. Through the FDA scientific evaluation of the company's applications peer-reviewed published literature and other sources the agency found that the aerosol produced by the IQOS tobacco heating system contains fewer toxic chemicals than cigarette smoke and many of the toxins identified present lower levels than in cigarette smoke. They estimate that heat not burnt tobacco products are around 89 to 91 percent less harmful for you than burning combustible tobacco cigarettes.
