Is Nicotine Really Bad?
I've just finished reading an interesting and insightful article that would make putting increased taxes on e-cigarettes even more counter-productive, because as pointed out in the article we can't find much reason to deem nicotine, in the amounts users ingest, as a hazard to health. It may be that the harms are not completely outweighed by the benefits, but overall I don't believe anyone can say with any confidence that nicotine consumption (by itself) is overall a significant health threat to society. It may even actually benefit the public in terms of reduced rates of health conditions. Of course the problem is mainly or all, down to the chemicals ingested with the nicotine.
