I am on the road or in meetings for much of the day so I'll leave you to discuss e-cigarettes.
According to the headline on the BBC website today: "Proof lacking on e-cigarettes safety, experts warn".
If you think about this, the headline could equally read: "No proof that e-cigarettes cause harm, experts say" ... but that's not really much of a story.
I was asked to comment but I don't know very much about e-cigarettes and I didn't want to say something for the hell of it. Eventually, after a bit of thought, I said:
"Given what we currently know [about e-cigarettes], there seems little cause for alarm and I would caution against any form of scaremongering.
"I don't know anyone who uses e-cigarettes as a permanent replacement for cigarettes, but they are useful in certain situations - on a long-haul flight, for example - where smoking is banned.
"That apart, they can be quite expensive so I can't imagine anyone using them for any length of time, or in any quantity, so one would assume that the health risks, if any, are minimal."
They didn't use it.

Thanks for your comments. I've learned a lot about e-cigarettes I didn't know before. Very useful.
