Rome, June 27 - Italian Health Minister Beatrice
Lorenzin on Thursday said she signed an ordinance banning
electronic cigarettes in schools.
Lorenzin said the measure followed the opinion expressed by
Italy's Superior Health Council (ISS), which urged prohibiting
the so-called e-cigarettes in schools and to minors under 18 but
not in public places.
Earlier this month the ISS, which is an advisory body to
the ministry, said about 500,000 Italian smokers had taken up
electronic cigarettes while over two million had tried them.
The habit is also reportedly growing among smokers between
15 and 24 years of age, according to a joint survey by the ISS
which polling institute Doxa released earlier this month.
Critics warn that e-cigarettes, which turn liquid nicotine
into a flavored vapor, have not been fully evaluated for
potential risks either to users or those nearby.
