Open letter to WHO’s Dr Margaret Chan on e-cigarettes

Below is a link which opens to a letter sent to WHO Director General Margaret Chan, June 16, 2014 regarding e-cigarettes. 129 public health and medical professionals from 31 nations have signed it, urging a more evidence-based approach to e-cigarettes.

There are a number of important messages in the letter, and one of the things which should be emphasized is the public health impact of e-cigarettes, because it remains unregulated, risk profiles and potential harms these may pose to the public are unknown.

Please do share among other colleagues and friends in  the tobacco control community and to media.
