Washington State Director of Health Claims that Smoking is No More Hazardous than Using Electronic Cigarettes. Where is the Evidence?
Michael Siegel has a post in his Tobacco News Analysis blog about how public health continues making claims about e-cigarettes and vapor products that are based on zero evidence.
The press release quotes Dr. Wiesman as follows:
“This is an urgent health concern that must be immediately addressed. Many kids believe e-cigarettes are safer, but scientific evidence suggests they are not.”
What exactly is the evidence suggesting that e-cigarettes are no safer than tobacco cigarettes?
