WHO Calls for E-Cigarette Regulations

E-cigarettes(CNN) — E-cigarettes were marketed as the answer to the foul results of tobacco smoke.

But the World Health Organization now suggests the vapors from e-cigarettes increase the levels of toxins in the air, including nicotine.

The agency is calling for standardized regulations to prevent advertisers and the industry from making unproved health claims for e-cigs.

The e-cigarette industry has grown to about $3 billion per year.

    Yah, i’m not a big fan of cigarette smoke. I think it was a great thing when laws were passed to ban it in the work place, or any public place for that matter. I support the E-Cig industry and it’s users. I live in a neighborhood filled with smokers, I can’t go into my own backyard without smelling the stench of foul stale cigarette smoke. If everyone smoked e-cigs what’s the worst you would have to deal with the fresh scent of strawberry or cherry. I’ll take that any day.

    LMAO the smoke that the World Health Organization blows out their rear end adds more toxins in the air than any other chemical. Give me a break. They would just freak if they saw all the black smoke clouds that come from public transportation.

    All this is are Libbers’s picking on something new that they can regulate. The E-Cig is a much improved method for smokers. Democrats please stop being commies.
