Last minute emails were sent to all the MEP’s who yesterday decided to vote almost unanimously YES for new legislation that undoubtedly will kill hundreds of thousands of europeans through continued smoking and very limited access to attractive vastly less harmful alternatives to cigarettes. Nowhere more so than in the lower income brackets of European society.
The YES vote yesterday will leave the last decision up to the council of ministers. Do let us pray that at least they have the sense to look more at science than re-election.
This is the most recent publication on the subject in the New England Journal of Medicine. Basically saying that the entire cadre of MEP’s are dead wrong!
