Abstract presented at European Respiratory Society (ERS) confirms previous study finding that e-cigarettes modestly reduce airway resistance for ten minutes.

https://www.ersnetsecure.org/public/prg_congres.abstract?ww_i_presentation=59718

But abstract author Christina Gratziou, Chair of the ERS Tobacco Control Committee, issues press release misrepresenting her own abstract’s findings by claiming: “Experts warn that e-cigarettes can damage the lungs”

http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2012-09/elf-ewt083112.php

February 2012 ERS policy opposes “the use of all tobacco and unapproved nicotine delivery products such as cigarettes, chewable tobacco, and emerging products that include electronic cigarettes (e-cigs), snus, dissolvable tobacco and waterpipes.”

News media repeats and further embellishes unsubstantiated claims in Gratziou’s press release

    In my opinion, being a Respiratory Therapist, I think that E-cigarettes are a new rovulotien to provide a safer alternative for smokers to feed their nicotine addiction. Nicotine is positive drug that is contained in many foods we eat and it creates dopamine release which is a positive effect on your body. The E-Cigarettes should be bought and used by the smoker population. E-cigarettes have helped many of my patients live positive lives. It is well worth the time and money.
