National Center's Stier Talks Tobacco Risk Reduction on Israeli Radio

While attending a health policy conference co-sponsored by the National Center and the Jerusalem Institute for Market Studies, Risk Analysis Division director Jeff Stier was interviewed about harm reduction measures related to tobacco by the Israeli Broadcasting Authority’s radio news.

Jeff points out there there are “alternative products” such as smokeless tobacco and e-cigarettes that can “lower the risk of cigarettes” as a public health concern.  The problem in promoting these potentially beneficial alternatives is that critics seeking a “risk-free society” seem averse to anything but a complete prohibition all tobacco-related products.
