You’ve probably noticed a lack of Heat not Burn news updates recently. There’s a simple reason for that – there’s been a lack of news. The coronavirus pandemic has actually managed to distract a lot of public health experts from trying to ban anything that’s fun, so we don’t have quite as many dubious reports and pointless health campaigns going on. We’ve managed to find a few stories, though, so here they are.
Here at Heat not Burn UK we’re always watching the news for anything that relates to your favourite reduced-harm nicotine products. Most of what we find is pretty dry – usually some article about the effect of iQOS sales on share prices that we can barely understand. Sometimes we do come up with interesting little gems, though, and this week our biggest finds were two new devices that are now on sale in trial markets. We’ll be doing our best to get reviews for you as soon as we can – but here’s what we know for now.
Here at Heat not Burn UK we’ve spent the summer testing new devices and topping up our tans, but there’s been some interesting stuff going on around the world. The big news from a few months back, of course, is that iQOS finally managed to get approval from the US FDA. Now that’s about to translate into actual products on American shelves, as PMI prepare to open the USA’s first iQOS store. HnB is starting to make headway in the Persian Gulf too, as Dubai Airport’s iQOS shop is set to be joined by a string of retailers across the country. There’s still resistance, of course – India seems to be trying for a ban on HnB products – but overall the news is looking pretty good!
