 Leading Lung Organizations in the World Favor Banning or Restricting E- Cigarettes' Use
Experts from the world's leading lung organizations have released a position statement calling for a ban or restriction on the use of e-cigarettes until their health impact is better known.

President Dean Schraufnagel, MD, lead author of the statement said that the gravity of tobacco used on global health and the historical behavior of the tobacco industry that had included deceit about the health effects of tobacco, intentional marketing to children, and manipulating nicotine levels in cigarettes to maintain addiction should prompt them to proceed cautiously.

The position of FIRS on electronic nicotine delivery devices includes the safety of electronic cigarettes that has not been adequately demonstrated and the addictive power of nicotine and its untoward effects should not be underestimated among other points.
