Queen Mary University of London Research findings
A scientific review carried out by researchers at Queen Mary University of London has found that ecigarettes cause less harm than tobacco smoking to users and bystanders.
Professor Peter Hajek, of the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies at QMUL, said "The evidence we currently have is clear: e-cigarettes should be allowed to compete against conventional cigarettes in the marketplace. Healthcare professionals may advise smokers who are unwilling to cease nicotine use to switch to e-cigarettes."
The review carried out by an international team of tobacco researchers has been published by the scientific journal Addiction.
