The World Health Organization or “WHO”, says that electronic cigarettes are worse than tobacco cigarettes. A technical officer for WHO said this in an interview with the Philippines news station. Their reasoning? – Get this… electronic cigarettes do not have filters and therefore, nicotine is going straight to the lungs entirely unrestrained.
Thanks to Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos (of Ecig-Research.com) for the share.
Electronic Cigarettes need to be registered and regulated with high level controls because of this danger and other constituents that might be found in the products. – Says Dr. Florante Trinidad of the Western Pacific regional branch of the World Health Organization.
Though Dr. Trinidad’s statement may not represent all those within the organization, it certainly doesn’t give off a wise nor knowledgeable appearance. In fact, the statement is completely bogus being that anyone whom has performed any research on tobacco cigarettes will know that it isn’t the nicotine that is the source to complications, it’s the smoke they produce.
This is a previously-unheard statement. For the first time, a WHO official is publicly and directly suggesting to e-cigarette users (vapers) that it is safer to go back to tobacco cigarettes. Everyone who has seen this video got the same impression. The biggest issue is that this statement is scientifically false, misleading and dangerous for the health of e-cigarette users who may be intimidated and relapse to smoking. – Says Dr. Farsalinos
