    Are e-cigarettes the new condom - Glimpses through the mist

    By Kristin Noll-Marsh - You may know of Kristin as a Rep for CASAA.

    "Safe sex public service announcements are done by celebrities and condom companies even sponsor sporting events and teams. The CDC reports that studies found that harm reduction (also called "prevention") programs had significant impact on reducing sexual risk behaviors and notably, the HIV prevention programs were not shown to hasten initiation of sexual intercourse among adolescents, even when those curricula encouraged sexually active young people to use condoms.

    New kid on the block
    So, when a new product came on the market, around 2003, that could significantly reduce the risks of smoking, it seemed a no-brainer that they'd be embraced by the same folks who promoted condoms. While e-cigarettes may have some low risks to users and little to no risks to bystanders, clearly the health benefits of millions of smokers using a safer product far outweighed those tiny risks. Tobacco harm reduction experts estimated the risks to the smoker would be reduced by 99% and to bystanders by nearly 100%. Now those are numbers a safe sex promoter would obviously understand!....."
