Smokers, Children and Bystanders: Evidence, E-Cigarettes and the Politics of Harm Reduction

15:30 - 15:45

This session will look at the origins of the ethical debates surrounding e-cigarettes and the conflicts that they have highlighted between harm reduction and precaution principles.  There has been a marked divide between those that focus on (UK PHE) smokers and (US) children and now bystanders.  Where we land will depend on both ethics and evidence but what should the bottom line be in the face of disagreement?

  •  Why have NAS and PHE come to such different conclusions about the evidence on children & bystanders
