Retail sales in the U.S. could top $1 billion this year, some analysts say, but that would still be just 1% of the market . But some say they could overtake conventional cigarettes within the next decade , helped along by ever tighter anti-smoking laws, increased taxes on tobacco, and, in the long run, a regulatory regime that recognizes the devices as aids to quit smoking. No such claims are currently made by e-cigarette manufacturers, who are forbidden from making such health claims without going through a lengthy approval process. A recent study suggested almost 10% of e-cigarette users go on to quit smoking . That makes them at least as good as other smoking cessation aids approved by regulators,Michael Siegel, a professor at Boston Universitys School of Public Health, told the WSJ.

Electronic Cigarettes — Let’s Think Before We Inhale

Once again the tobacco industry is marketing the disease of addiction. Harm reduction advocates argue that for those currently addicted to traditional cigarettes e-cigarettes are a less harmful substitute. In a perfect world this may be true, but the research on how these products are actually used is scarce and some of it suggests that e-cigarettes aren’t being used as replacement products but instead are being used to simply supplement other tobacco use and to circumvent current no-smoking policies that have taken decades to achieve. Harm reduction advocates also make the case that e-cigarettes are safer than combustible products because they do not present the risks to others associated with second-hand smoke.
