Immediate ban of e-cigarettes urged

The Council on Smoking and Health (Cosh) on Monday called for an immediate ban on e-cigarettes, highlighting its danger through two separate studies.

In one study, it found at least two cancer causing chemicals in 13 of the e-cigarette brands available in the market. The test, carried out by the Baptist University, found harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde and PAHs – both known carcinogens – in these brands.

Dr Chung Shan-shan from the university’s biology department said these chemicals pose a high degree of risk to its users.

The second study found more young people make a major section of e-cigarette users. Cosh urged the government to enact a total ban on the device as soon as possible, before the situation gets worse.
