Public Health Consequences of E-Cigarettes
Requested by Congress in P.L. 114-113, this new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, evaluates the available evidence of the health effects related to the use of electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) in users; vulnerable populations of users such as youth, pregnant women, and individuals with underlying medical conditions; and nonusers exposed to second-hand and third-hand aerosol generated by use of the these devices. This comprehensive report contains conclusions in areas such as smoking initiation and cessation, health effects when compared to combustible tobacco cigarettes, and health effects related to cancer, cardiovascular disease, and respiratory and oral diseases.
These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on January 23, 2018 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
