Electronic cigarettes IS not a escape route :WHO
Tobacco use is the single largest cause of preventable death worldwide, contributing to 5.4 million deaths from heart disease, stroke and other disease annually.
world health organisation warned against the use of electronic cigarettes , saying that there is no evidence to prove theywere safe or helped smokers break the habit.. this product is first made in china and nowadays hugely popular in countries like Brazil, Britain, Isreal, Canada.
A typical electronic cigarette is made of metal tube with a chamber which holds liquid nicotine in a rechargeable cartridge. Users puff on it but do not light it, leading some to use it to evade smoking bans in public places, according to the WHO.
However, they inhale a fine mist of nicotine into their lungs, "plus potentially many other toxic compounds which we are not sure of", said to Douglas Bettcher, acting director of the WHO's Tobacco Free Initiative.
"The World Health Organization knows of absolutely no scientific evidence whatsoever that would confirm that the electronic cigarette is a safe and effective smoking cessation device," Bettcher told a news briefing.
"Toxicological tests and clinical trials have not been performed on this product," he said.
