The Truth About E-Cigarettes

The Truth About E-Cigarettes | E-Cigarettes | Halo Cigs | Scoop.it
Scientists have yet to find that electronic cigarettes pose a significant health risk to users. 'National Geographic' seems to think that's a reason to panic.
Halo Cigs's insight:

We know much of the news today was focused on the Attorney Generals from 40 of the States pushing for FDA regulation of the e-cigarette industry. But we thought this was interesting and would get lost in the shuffle, so we wanted to bring it to your intention. Basically we have one publication calling out another for a misleading article. It's always interesting to see different perspectives, stances, and agendas from different parties. This is a perfect example. Here is the link to the National Geographic article that is being called out:

Please take time to read both and share your thoughts.

Another View: States should consider e-cigarette policies

Another View: States should consider e-cigarette policies | E-Cigarettes | Halo Cigs | Scoop.it
Electronic cigarettes have the potential to improve public health if adults use them instead of regular tobacco—but not if they end up hooking young people on nicotine.
Halo Cigs's insight:

Another article that states e-cigarettes are marketed towards children and young adults to get them addicted. I guess adults don't like flavored things.
