Spanish anti-cancer association calls for stricter regulation of e-cigarettes

According to a report by Spanish Radio (EFE) on January 16, the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC) has submitted a request to the government, calling for e-cigarettes to be included in tobacco regulations and to restrict related commercial activities to better protect children and teenagers. , preventing them from being exposed to tobacco products through e-cigarettes.

The AECC made the request after the government cabinet approved equal regulation of traditional cigarettes and heated tobacco and a ban on flavored tobacco products. The association said in an announcement that this was a "necessary step" but stressed that some measures have yet to be implemented, including including e-cigarettes in regulations and the establishment of widespread smoke-free zones.

The announcement stated: “The association would like to particularly emphasize that regulatory control of the sales of e-cigarette products is crucial, because the recent Espudes survey conducted by the Ministry of Health showed that the use of e-cigarettes is very worrying.”

AECC President Ramon Reyes discussed e-cigarette issues with Queen Letizia at a meeting. Reyes said the government's decision to regulate traditional cigarettes and heated tobacco equally was "very positive" and encouraged the government to take more steps to reform the 2010 tobacco law.
