The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that the government will regulate e-cigarettes in the same way they regulate traditional cigarettes and tobacco products.

Earlier this month, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced it will regulate electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, the same way it regulates traditional tobacco products. Many smokers turn to e-cigarettes to stop smoking; despite some claims of effectiveness, there are still concerns, as the health risks of e-cigarettes are largely unknown.

Here to discuss e-cigarettes are program leader of Cancer Etiology, Control and Prevention at the University of Cincinnati Cancer Institute, deputy director of the Center for Environmental Genetics, Professor at theUCDepartment of Environmental Health and Epidemiologist Member of theUCCancer Institute and Cincinnati Cancer Center, Dr. SusanPinney; Professor at theUCCollege of Pharmacy, Dr. JanePruemer; and Professor at theUCCollege of Medicine and Director for the Toxicology Excellence for Risk Assessment (TERA) Center, Dr. MichaelDourson.
