The British Medical Association Raises Concerns about E-Cigarettes in Public Places Norfolk
A call by the BMA to include e-cigarettes in the ban on smoking in public places has sparked a lot of debate.
E-cigarettes have been shown to eliminate the dangerous, carcinogenic chemicals present in conventional cigarettes. However, a spokesman for Greater Anglia said that “in common with other train operators, we have recently made the decision to include e-cigarettes in the smoke ban on the trains in the stations”.
A lack of rigorous, peer-reviewed studies to support the use of e-cigarettes has sparked the British Medical Association to raise concerns about whether the devices, which are designed to replace conventional cigarettes, actually succeed in helping smokers quit.
The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency has decided to regulate the products, and Dr. Vivienne Nathanson, director of the BMA Professional Activities, is in support of the regulations.
“We can now build on this and press for good research which looks at the efficacy and health implications of e-cigarettes, either breaks or reinforces smoking behaviors,” she said in a statement.
However, Tom Pruen, the chief scientific officer with the Electronic Cigarette Industry Trade Association, says regulating the e-cigarettes like medicine may kill off the industry. People who use e-cigarettes to smoke don’t use them in medicinal ways.
