Swedish Minister for Public Health – a knight in shining armour for European ex-smokers

Swedish Minister for Public Health highlighted the health risks of cigarettes vs. snus in Parliament, stressing the need to diversify taxation. Defending snus, he addressed maintaining the sale of tobacco-free pouches in the market and emphasized protecting children from nicotine. Pouch Patrol praised the Minister's stance and urged EU Health Ministers to consider Sweden's approach, aiming for a smoke-free nation. The Minister's arguments align with WHO's goal, positioning Sweden as a leader in tobacco control.
