    Scientific Review of Existing Evidence Advocates E-Cigs for Tobacco Harm Reduction

    Conclusion – A Dangerous Dichotomy

    The final important point is the researchers’ allegation that the “quit or die” approach favored by anti-smoking groups is potentially damaging. They comment that “E-cigs represent a middle ground between nicotine maintenance using the most deadly of delivery mechanism, smoking, and the nicotine abstinence demanded by the tobacco control community.” This dangerous dichotomy is neither justified nor beneficial, there is a third option, and it has the potential to save millions of lives around the world.

    I hate this sort of language! "Nicotine maintenance"! We're not desparate junkies queued up for our dose of methadone! It's sneaking in the medical model through a side door. Nicotine is a recreational substance, similar to caffeine. So how was your caffeine maintenance dose this morning? Sounds ridiculous!
