Flavor Enhancers Bypassing French Ban Raise Concerns
E-cigarette industry faces concerns over potential risks as it circumvents tobacco flavoring ban through sale of 'flavor enhancers'.

According to reports from French media, the e-cigarette industry has recently been exposed for engaging in a potentially risky market practice by circumventing the ban on flavored vaping products through the sale of so-called "flavor enhancers". This practice has raised concerns over the respiratory health of users, particularly the allure it may hold for young people.


According to Mathieu Morissette, a researcher at the Quebec University Heart and Lung Research Institute, the sale of these flavor enhancers involves circumventing regulations. The e-cigarette industry has successfully bypassed the regulations banning the direct sale of flavored e-cigarette products by selling unflavored base liquids and providing additional flavor enhancers.


During an interview with host Paul Arcand, Morissette pointed out that the motive behind this action could potentially be the tobacco industry's attempt to attract new users.


The industry's such circumvention of regulations may have profound implications for public health, and it has already garnered widespread concern among young people.
