NAQC Newsroom: Tobacco Control

An Opinion Piece of The Regulatory Challenges of Electronic Cigarettes!

Tuesday, July 16, 2013  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
The opinion piece was published by JAMA this week by Drs. Neil Benowitz and Maciej L. Goniewicz, and can be located at the link below.

Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes or electronic nicotine delivery systems) heat a nicotine solution to generate vapor that is inhaled, without the combustion of tobacco and its toxic constituents. Use of e-cigarettes is increasing in the United States and around the world. Current smokers in the United States report an 11.4% prevalence of ever use of e-cigarettes and 4.1% use in past 30 days.1 They likely pose less direct hazard to the individual smoker than tobacco cigarettes and might help smokers quit smoking or reduce harm by smoking fewer tobacco cigarettes.On the other hand, there are potential harms, including promoting continued smoking of cigarettes and renormalizing cigarette smoking behaviors.
