电子烟草的拖累

雷恩—20世纪70年代戒烟研究先驱迈克尔·罗素(Michael Russell)和穆雷·哈维克(Murray Jarvik)也许会欢迎电子香烟或“个人尼古丁蒸馏器”(personal nicotine vaporizer,PNV)的开发。这一新型尼古丁提供系统除了可以作为戒烟者的临时辅助手段,也可以成为烟草的长期替代品——让几乎完全消灭烟草消费成为可能。

我们早就知道,人们为尼古丁而吸烟,但死于烟雾。事实上,绝大部分烟草相关疾病和死亡是因为吸入了焦油颗粒和包括一氧化碳在内的有毒气体。尽管尼古丁替代疗法(NRT)帮助许多烟民戒了烟,但吸烟的习惯仍在众多国家无处不在。

以不可燃形式使用尼古丁——如无烟烟草或PNV——可以让数百万烟民大幅减少尼古丁消费现在给他们的健康带来的伤害。在瑞典,鼻烟(snus,一种无烟烟草产品,具有较低的致癌亚硝胺浓度)的广泛使用大幅降低了肺癌数量,目前瑞典的肺癌人数为世界最低之一。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
