    Blatant propaganda regarding e-cigarettes. Ordinary tobacco cigarettes are regulated by the FDA does that make them safe? ….of course not

    Why not give your readers some balanced advice?
    read what the Royal College of Physicians have to say
    see https://www.rcplondon.ac.uk/news/promote-e-cigarettes-widely-substitute-smoking-says-new-rcp-report
    and
    https://publichealthmatters.blog.gov.uk/2016/12/09/hertfordshire-e-cigarettes-policy-aims-to-help-smokers-quit/
    The data that you quote is misleading eg
    1) use is defined as even 1 puff not as any reasonable person would expect as regular use
    2) How many of the teens use nicotine free e-cigs?
    3) How many of the teens were former smokers?
    4) Virtually zero non-smoking teens have started to use the devices

    Most important thing to remember ….e-cigarettes are estimated to have as a maximum 5% of the Harm of traditional conventional tobacco cigarettes.

    Why is that information not conveyed to your readers? To not disseminate the facts and truth on this matter is shameful and despicable..your readers DESERVE BETTER!!

    “E-cigarettes are not approved by the FDA”

    But actual cigarettes are. Worth thinking about, perhaps.

    Or carry on smoking we need the money. This lazy irresponsible jernalism harms. Do your homework and be a proper jernalist for a change.

    If you are a smoker or a vaper please ignore this article. Whoever wrote it doesn’t understand smoking or vaping and has been too lazy to do any research.

    The leading authorities in the UK have reviewed all the scientific evidence and have agreed that vaping could save millions of lives. Look at the links from Alan Beard.

    I was a smoker for 42 years and I just couldn’t quit. But in July 2012 I switched to vaping. Within a few months I felt so much better that I started training. Now I do off-road marathons. I owe it all to vaping.
