Johnston says e-cigs may reverse two-decades of progress on smoking reduction

"E-cigarettes are just as addictive as the real thing and most are mislabeled, researchers warn" - Daily Mail. 7/22/2015.

The news on e-cigarettes is grim, with recent research finding that they are just as addictive as regular cigarettes, that they contain the strongest form of nicotine, that nicotine levels in e-cigs don't match labeling, that e-cigs may not be effective in helping smokers quit, and that they may be drawing teens into smoking who would not otherwise have started. Lloyd Johnston says: "I worry that the tremendous progress that we've made over the last almost two decades in smoking could be reversed on us by the introduction of e-cigarettes."
