Follow up letter on tobacco tax policy in Israel to Ministry of Health from Clive Bates, Martin Jarvis, Mark Kleiman, Sally Satel, Jeff Stier, David Sweanor. From the covering email:
At present we understand the Ministry of Health does not consider there to be an established difference in health risk. Given what is known, we think it should be assumed that the risks from the heated products are significantly lower, at least until some evidence to the contrary emerges – none exists to date. We explain this reasoning in the letter.
This follows a letter of 8 May to the Finance Ministry.
