FDA E-Cigarettes: Impact on Individual and Population Health
“FDA Center for Tobacco Products scientists have been reviewing the available literature to determine the state of e-cigarette knowledge and have identified research areas that could be addressed. This supplement provides a summary of the current knowledge and research gaps pertaining to e-cigarettes with regards to product design, chemistry and toxicology of e-liquid and aerosol constituents, human factor-based risk factors, abuse liability, clinical pharmacology and human health effects, pediatric issues, and environmental issues.”
SECOND, a new Congressional report on e-cigarettes
was issued. The report includes e-cigarette manufacturers’ survey response related mostly to sales and marketing to youth.
