Mike Bloomberg Statement on the FDA’s Decision to Clear the Market of Flavored E-Cigarettes
SEP. 11, 2019
The FDA's announcement that it will clear flavored e-cigarettes from the market' is the right one, but words are not enough. This decision is long overdue - the timeline for action is yesterday, not tomorrow. The agency must now move quickly to adopt a flavor ban that is comprehensive and that takes effect immediately. And it's up to us, the public, to hold them accountable – and I intend to do exactly that.

IN MIKE'S WORDS
The science is clear: employ data-driven approaches to large public health problems and death and illness rates fall.
