SULLUM: The Public Health Case for Electronic Cigarettes 
Author: Jacob Sullum 
Boston University public health professor Michael Siegel and Zachary Cahn, a graduate student in political science at U.C.-Berkeley, review the evidence concerning the relative hazards of e-cigarettes and conventional cigarettes as well as the former’s potential as a replacement for the latter. “A preponderance of the available evidence shows [e-cigarettes] to be much safer than tobacco cigarettes and comparable in toxicity to conventional nicotine replacement products,” they write. Furthermore, because e-cigarettes more closely simulate the experience of smoking than nicotine gum, patches, or inhalers do, they may be more effective in helping smokers quit. Siegel and Cahn note that effectiveness may not hinge on nicotine delivery.
