Why Are Electronic Cigarettes Treated Like a Tobacco Product?

Feb. 18, 2015  ( "As the popularity of electronic cigarettes has grown over the past several years, so have concerns over the health risks tied to them.

             "The New England Journal of Medicine, for example, recently published a letter from researchers that set off alarm bells. They reported that some e-cigarettes release formaldehyde, a probable cancer-causing substance (or carcinogen), when heated with batteries set at high voltages. 

 "On Jan. 28, the California State Department of Public Health released a report declaring e-cigarettes a public health threat and calling for regulation.

"The results of one FDA review of 18 different e-cigarette cartridges found toxic and carcinogenic chemicals in some but not others. All but one of the cartridges labeled “no nicotine” did, in fact, contain nicotine."
