What is the future now for the E-Cigarette?
A doctor from Tyneside has called for more research into "electronic" cigarettes following the death of one of his patients.
It comes after an inquest recorded an open verdict into the death of Terence Miller from Gateshead.
Mr Miller, who used large quantities of the substitutes, had suffered from a lung disease - severe lipoid pneumonia.It looks like the man in question had a miriad of health problems and I think that anything inhaled would have severly put him under stress, including exhaust fumes from our roads.
Banning the E-cig can't be very far away. Full story here.
