Professor Steve Manske from the University of Waterloo is available to speak to the media on the Canadian Cancer Society’s new report on the use of flavoured tobacco among Canadian youth.
Professor Manske can also address the various provincial releases related to the national release, such as those from the Ontario Campaign for Action on Tobacco and Campaign for a Smoke-Free Alberta.
A research associate professor in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences and senior scientist with the Propel Centre for Population Health Impact at Waterloo, Professor Manske analyzed data from the national Youth Smoking Survey for the report.
“These robust data highlight the disturbing role flavoured tobacco products play in hooking Canadian youth," he said. "Closing the loopholes in existing legislation is critical to the health of our nation. An alarming proportion of youth tobacco users consume flavoured products.”
