The IOM committee's recommendation would require a tobacco company to conduct far more research than FDA requires drug companies to conduct on NRT products before they can be marketed as smoking cessation aids.
Smokers have a human right to truthful health information about far less hazardous alternatives to cigarettes. But this IOM committee obviously disagrees.
In sum, the IOM committee's report protects cigarettes at the expense of public health, human rights and the truth.Bill Godshall
