3. Authorise or ban - that's the big question

What is most dangerous to your health? Smoking, drinking or being too lonely? Professor Karl-Erik Lund, an expert on tobacco issues, says we need to unleash the alternatives to the dangerous cigarettes, snus and e-cigs, to reduce illness and death. Marie Risbeck, an alcohol expert at the Swedish Public Health Agency, believes that Systembolaget is the best way to save lives and public health. Jakob Forssmed, deputy leader of the Christian Democratic Party, thinks that we should legislate against loneliness, because loneliness creates illness. The conversation is led by psychiatrist and senior physician David Eberhard.
