Consumers call for testing on e-cigarettes in Italy


Rome, September 4 - Italian consumers' association
Codacons on Wednesday called for a campaign of testing on
e-cigarettes after reports some liquids used for them contain
harmful substances.
The call comes after weekly magazine Il Salvagente
published a report based on tests conducted by Naples Federico
II University that said toxic substances including lead and
arsenic had been found in some e-cigarette liquids.
"The real problem is the lack of a law that regulates the
sector of e-cigarettes and the liquids for them. Chaos reigns,"
said Codacons President Carlo Rienzi.
"While we are waiting for certain rules, the health
ministry and the health-and-safety police should carry out
testing of all the liquids sold for e-cigarettes in Italy...
"All the liquids that could be a health danger should be
immediately taken off the market on the basis of the
precautionary principle".
