Apparently we're about to see action on e-cigs - the health minister, Simon Burns says:
ELECTRONIC cigarettes face a crackdown amid fears they could be harmful to smokers trying to quit tobacco.
Figures show TWO MILLION Brits have tried them and 650,000 use them regularly. But Health Minister Simon Burns said some e-cigs had been “found to pose a potential danger”.
That's news to me but the idea that they might be more harmful to smokers trying to quit than actual cigarettes is frothingly dumb. Those 650,000 regular users are doing their health good not ill - maybe Mr Burns has had a visit from Pfizer?
“It’s illegal to sell e-cigarettes as a ‘quit smoking’ aid unless they’re licensed as a medicine.”
Apart from "no it's not", I have little to say about this except that the makers of medical nicotine must be sweating at the success of e-fags.
