The World Health Organization advises against E-cigarettes

E-cigarette maker targets Colorado

The second question posed by the WHO is Is use of electronic cigarettes (ENDS) an effective method for quitting tobacco smoking? Again, the global health body answers by saying this has not been scientifically demonstrated. ENDS are often touted as tobacco replacements, smoking alternatives or smoking cessation aids. But we know that for smoking cessation products to be most effectively and safely used, they need to be used according to instructions developed for each product through scientific testing. There are no scientifically proven instructions for using ENDS as replacements or to quit smoking. The implied health benefits associated with these claims are unsubstantiated or may be based on inaccurate or misleading information. Based on this information, the WHO concludes that consumers should be strongly advised not to use any of these products, including electronic cigarettes.

Wed Jul 10, 2013 2:50pm EDT Totally Wicked Responds to the European Parliament Decision to Regulate Electronic Cigarettes that Will Cost Lives Tobacco cigarettes kill 700,000 people every year in the EU.* E-cigarettes have the potential to disrupt the business model of the established tobacco industry. However, rather than encouraging this, MEPs on the European Parliaments Environment Committee have today voted to have e-cigarettes regulated as a medicinal products, a move that the Parliaments own Legal Affairs Committee said, constitutes a ban. E-cigarettes can only be considered medicinal if they directly treat a disease. E-cigarettes do not do this; they simply deliver clean nicotine without the tar, carbon monoxide, and volatile hot gases of cigarettes. For people who switch from cigarettes, they hugely reduce risk, while satisfying the need for nicotine and some of the behavioural aspects of smoking. Far from helping those smokers who want to switch, medicines regulation will add costs, impose burdens, apply restrictions, and hold back innovation.

Since at least 2009, the federal Food and Drug Administration has warned about potential health risks associated with e-cigarettes. In addition to nicotine, the products contain substances such as propylene glycol and artificial flavors that might, the agency warns, penetrate deeply into the lungs. However, the products at least for now are not regulated. More than a dozen states, including Colorado, have banned the sale of e-cigarettes to minors.
