E-cigarettes: Debate continues on safety, regulation


Electronic cigarette use is rising rapidly and continues to generate significant public debate. Critics of e-cigarettes cite negative effects on public health efforts to reduce smoking and the potential of this new nicotine-delivery device to engage young people as new smokers. E-cigarette advocates assert that these devices can support smoking cessation and minimize harm from cigarette smoking.
