#CPDD What’s Hot – Could E-cigarettes have a Public Health Potential?


[Music] [Matthew Johnson speaking] There’s a lot of concerns, and its appropriate about the potential downside e-cigarettes but we shouldn’t
lose sight of the fact that this may be one the biggest game changers
in terms of changing the course of tobacco use and the incredible mortality
that comes from it. People reported a rather large reduction in the amount of tobacco
cigarettes that they smoked since using e-cigarettes, in fact among
those who reduced we saw a 60 percent reduction from 10
cigarettes a day to 4 cigarettes a day. So we think there’s a lot of
public health potential in terms, from harm
reduction perspective for e-cigarettes. Although certainly more
research is needed to investigate potential harms
from e-cigarettes. [Music]
