Rome, June 4 - Italy's National Health Council
proposed Tuesday that electronic cigarettes be banned from
schools to protect youngsters.
The proposal from the council's advisory board will go to
the health ministry.
Electronic cigarettes have triggered controversy as their
use spreads.
Last week, consumer association Codacons said the devices
should be banned in public places, just as their low-tech
cousins have been banned.
In a formal petition to the health ministry and to industry
ministry, the association said the content of emissions from
electronic cigarettes should also be carefully analyzed.
Scientists still have not ascertained how harmful, if at
all, these devices are, said the consumer group.
And until it is clear what harmful substances might be
contained and diffused by e-cigarettes, they should be banned in
public just as conventional cigarette smoking is current banned,
said Codacons.
E-cigarettes usually contain an atomizer that passes vapour
into the user's mouth.
Some deliver nicotine and proponents say because nothing is
burned, as in a conventional cigarette, there are no toxins
released.
