    E-cigarettes: 'cancer risk close to zero'

    "There's no tobacco in the product, so the potential cancer risk should be dropping to close to zero. Even if it's not exactly zero, the consequences of taking tobacco out of people's lungs and bodies will be huge for cardiovascular disease as well as lung and other cancers," he said.

    Medical regulation could hamper progress
    Yach said that the "potential positive disruptive power" of electronic cigarettes could be overshadowed by regulating them as medical devices. He believes they should be treated like any other consumer product that is subject to the South African Bureau of Standards' approval.

    According to Yach, regulating electronic cigarettes as pharmaceutical products would "hinder further development" of these products, "which is essential for electronic cigarettes to become a full replacement for cigarettes".
