WHO Urged to Follow Sweden’s Example

The World Health Organization should look at Sweden for inspiration when deciding how to effectively reduce smoking-related deaths, according to the Institute for Tobacco Studies (ITS). In a paper published on Qeios, ITS’ principal investigator, Lars M. Ramstroem, says Sweden provides a prime example of how products that don’t burn tobacco can benefit public health. Sweden has the lowest smoking prevalence among men in the European Union and consequently the lowest tobacco-related mortality. The “WHO needs to apply all science-based strategies to reduce tobacco-related deaths,” Ramstroem said in a statement.
