When the Facts are too boring

The following is the English translation of an article Dr. Rutqvist wrote today in Aftenposten.no.  This is a link to the original article by Dr. Rutqvist.

Life could have been spared the Norwegian smokers had been advised of the health difference between snus and cigarettes.

Smokeless tobacco is 90 percent less harmful than cigarettes. You know Tom K. Grimsrud in the Cancer Registry. Yet he chooses in Aftenposten on 14 August to continue to spread disinformation about the link between tobacco and adverse health effects. A debate about the health effects of pleasure products is important, but only if it is based on facts and not scare.

In the article in Aftenposten Grimsrud argues that it is a bad idea to replace cigarettes with snuff and snus increases the risk of cancer. Royal College of Physicians has concluded that smokeless tobacco is at least 90 percent less harmful than cigarettes. It is now over 10 years since the EU from a scientific standpoint removed cancer warning on snuff box. Fact is that if everyone who smoked went over to snuff it would have had major positive health effects.

Life could have been spared the Norwegian smokers had been advised of the health difference between snus and cigarettes. This has happened in Sweden, and is about to happen in Norway.....
