The World Health Organization this week published new warnings about vaping. According to Science Magazine, the warnings have prompted strong pushback from public health experts in the United Kingdom. They claim WHO was spreading “blatant misinformation” about the potential risks and benefits of e-cigarettes. The squabble comes amid growing controversy over the risks and benefits of e-cigarettes. Of particular concern is their effect on young people, for whom vaping has soared in popularity. In recent months, public health officials in the UK have generally supported vaping as a useful alternative to traditional cigarettes.
