Electronic Cigarettes: Boon or Bane?

Description

There’s a relatively new product on the market, which is being promoted as a safer alternative to smoking. “E-cigarettes” are designed to look like “real” cigarettes and mimic the smoking experience while delivering the nicotine that smokers crave, but without the cancer-causing tar in regular cigarettes. Join us for a discussion led by two tobacco researchers to learn more about this product and what questions still need to be answered about its safety.
