Flavored tobacco is killing underage smokers, experts say – 18 de marzo de 2015 – Vietnam

Health and legal experts are again calling on the government to impose a ban on flavored tobacco products which have been plaguing the country and exposing children to major health risks.

These risks can be more harmful than those caused by regular cigarettes, experts said, after local media reported that a police raid last week at a café in the southern beach town of Vung Tau found many 12-year-old students smoking shisha, aka hookah.

Police then confiscated 12 bags of the fruit-flavored, sweet-scented tobacco and two smoking water pipes.

The café owner failed to explain the product’ origins and present any license.
