The Food and Drug Administration has said it is generally safe for use in food. However, the long-term risks of inhalation are not clear. A German cancer institute reviewed research on e-cigarettes and said secondhand exposure may raise a child’s risk for asthma. Further, the German study said: “Adverse health effects for third parties exposed cannot be excluded because the use of electronic cigarettes leads to emission of fine and ultrafine inhalable liquid particles, nicotine and cancer-causing substances into indoor air.” As the devices are touted as an aid to quit smoking, U.S. cigarette makers are jumping into the market with flavors that include strawberry and pina colada. Meanwhile, the FDA is studying e-cigarette health effects and whether to regulate the devices as it regulates tobacco.

Are e-cigarettes safe?

I know that we dont know all the facts on whats in it yet, but I do know its a lot safer than regular cigarettes. But are they? Its a burning question the U.S. government cant answer. Unlike tobacco products, e-cigarettes arent regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.

It may say there’s no nicotine in (e-cigarette cartridges), but in some products that have been tested there have been high levels of nicotine found within them. She said she’s also concerned that because the devices, in some cases, look like real cigarettes, it is normalizing cigarette use. Candy-flavoured e-cigarette cartridges may also be attractive to youth, Brunet-Fechner said. As well, there also isn’t enough known about the impact the vapour from e-cigarettes might have on others, so she advises workplaces and other public venues against allowing the devices. In an email statement, Health Canada said because the safety, quality and efficacy of these products remains uncertain, it continues to advise Canadians not to use e-cigarettes, as they may pose health risks.

Electronic cigarettes: No smoking, but lots of fuming

EU vote on electronic cigarettes ‘makes no sense’

Customers can sit at one of six “bars” with a bartender to try the different flavors of juice. Vapers note that their e-choice is still less harmful than cigarettes, and more pleasant in taste and smell, even if they must go outside to indulge. Nonetheless, there is still risk to the person puffing on an e-cigarette, if the juice contains nicotine. Even without the chemicals in traditional cigarettes, nicotine is bad for cardiovascular health and pregnant women, Siegel says.

Eonsmoke Electronic Cigarettes Reaches 15,000 Retail Locations in USA

By Martin Banks in Brussels 4:18PM BST 14 Jul 2013 The vote was intended to make tobacco smoking less attractive to young people through mandatory warnings, minimum pack sizes, and rules on flavourings. However, the revision of the EU ‘Tobacco Products Directive’ would classify most e-cigarettes as a medicinal product, despite the fact that in the UK alone 25 percent of all attempts to kick the habit are made using e-cigarettes, making them the most popular aid. The European Commission had proposed that e-cigarettes containing 4 milligrammes or more of nicotine must be classed as medicinal products but an EU parliamentary committee went further, voting to classify all e-cigarettes as pharmaceuticals, regardless of the nicotine content. Users of e-cigarettes (known as vapers) have protested, arguing that through e-cigarettes they were able to kick the tobacco habit.

A Senate committee analysis of Corbett’s bill notes that the cigarette industry has successfully resisted having the product regulated as a drug by the FDA. In response, anti-smoking activists are pushing to have them regulated like tobacco. Stan Glantz, a professor of tobacco control at UC San Francisco who supports Corbett’s bill, said e-cigarette companies brought the increased scrutiny upon themselves. The companies, he said, “talk out of both sides of their mouths. When it’s convenient to be a cigarette to avoid FDA (medical) regulations, they’re a cigarette. And then other times, they say, ‘We’re not a cigarette.’ ” In 2010, Corbett succeeded in passing legislation to ban the sale of e-cigarettes to minors.

Antismoking groups push for veto of R.I. e-cigarette legislation

That subjects them to the same taxes, regulations and licensing requirements as traditional cigarettes and cigars. It is also consistent with what the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has said it intends to do if and when it adopts its own regulations, according to OFlaherty. Rhode Islands new law, in contrast, places them under a new classification: vapor products, a term also used in Arizona, Missouri, Washington, South Carolina, and North Carolina, according to Conley, of the e-cigarette advocacy group. Other states classify them as alternative nicotine products or simply as e-cigarettes, he said. The Rhode Island law defines vapor products as any noncombustible product containing nicotine, such as an electronic cigarette, that employs a mechanical heating element, battery or electronic circuit, regardless of shape or size, that can be used to heat a liquid nicotine solution contained in a vapor cartridge as well as any vapor cartridge containing liquid nicotine solution that can be used with or in a vapor product. Rhode Island e-cigarette vendors on said Tuesday that the new law should not hurt business, since they do not sell to minors as a policy.

Totally Wicked Responds to the European Parliament Decision to Regulate Electronic Cigarettes that Will Cost Lives

UTSA scholars to study health effects of electronic cigarettes

Speaking after the announcement, Fraser Cropper, Chief Executive Officer of Totally Wicked said: Do policy makers really want to protect an industry that kills 700,000 people at the expense of a market-based, consumer-led public health revolution that has the potential to save millions of lives? Let us not hide from the stark facts, because that is exactly what they have done today. If todays vote had truly been about public health then MEPs would have voted to ban tobacco cigarettes. If policy makers are unwilling to ban tobacco cigarettes then they have a moral obligation to ensure that any regulatory regime they introduce to regulate e-cigarettes, a recognised safer alternative to tobacco cigarettes, continues to allow them to be sold freely and in a way that is attractive to existing tobacco cigarette smokers. Today MEPs shirked their moral responsibility. Those MEPs that have failed their constituents by supporting fallaciously misrepresented facts, knowingly purveyed to drive through this obvious ends driven regulation, must now take full accountability for their actions.

Electronic cigarette controls: Stephen Williams and Amish Badiani

“E-cigarettes are perceived as safer than actual smoking, and some people even perceive them to be an attractive weight-loss tool,” said Fogt. “This study aims to quantify the metabolic consequences of inhaling vaporized nicotine.” Cooke added, “This study is an important first step to understanding the physiological complications and public health concerns surrounding the use of e-cigarettes. It will also give us a better understanding of the health effects of pure nicotine without the harmful poisons found in tobacco products on the autonomic nervous system.” If this study confirms the scholars’ hypotheses, additional research will be needed to further understand the immediate effects of vaporized nicotine, the impact of dosage and age on an e-cigarette user’s health and the long-term effects of e-cigarettes.” The UTSA Department of Health and Kinesiology serves more than 1,000 students in four undergraduate degree programs, a minor and a master’s program.

The use of them, including by Daily Politics guest Laurie Penny on-air, can lead to complaints from others who think people are smoking traditional cigarettes, and so breaking the law.
