Huff Post Live Segment Focuses on Electronic Cigarettes
Yesterday, a Huff Post Live segment focused on electronic cigarettes, especially the issue of whether their use should be banned in public places. Cynthia Hallett of Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights and Dr. David Abrams of Legacy argued that we just don't know enough about what is in electronic cigarette vapor and so we shouldn't allow their use in public places. I argued that we actually have a very good idea of the components of e-cigarette vapor and that there just is not evidence to support the contention that this is a serious public health issue that warrants banning vaping in public.
