Ban on Indoor E-Cig Smoking Requested
(WGGB) — E-cigarettes have been marketed as the alternative to using tobacco smoke. But now, one agency is requesting that it’s use be banned, even indoors.
The World Health Organization is suggesting that the vapors from e-cigarettes still increase the levels of toxins in the air, including nicotine. The agency is now calling for standardized regulations preventing indoor usage.
It’s also requested that advertisers and the industry not be permitted to make unproved health claims for their e-cigs.
The e-cigarette industry has grown significantly to about $3 billion dollars per year.
