‘The World Health Organization (WHO) has called for stronger regulation on electronic cigarettes, recommending that their use be banned indoors and that the devices not be sold to minors.
The United Nations health organization voiced concerns that the $3 billion (£1.8bn) e-cigarette market was also controlled by established transnational tobacco companies, echoing warnings from independent analysts that “Big Tobacco” could regain its influence over younger demographics with the new devices.
he WHO suggested a range of “regulatory options” including banning vending machines from public places, stopping the sale of sweet, fruit and alcohol-flavoured products, and prohibiting manufacturers from touting the devices’ health benefits (such as their use in quitting smoking) until there is “convincing supporting scientific evidence”.’
