The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announces a new marketing strategy for e-cigarette vendors. This announcement comes just weeks after a federal judge ordered the FDA to look into the health effects of e-cigarettes. The judge specifically declared that the FDA acted illegally by allowing the sale of e-cigarettes without the registration of the vendors and the products being tested with the FDA. With e-cigarettes and vaping becoming an increasingly popular phenomena among youth, this is an important step to ensuring the public’s safety.
What is the Current Marketing Strategy for E-Cigarettes?
Previously, e-cigarette vendors were allowed to market as they wish without being required to register with the FDA and comply with FDA regulations. Now, the FDA is taking an active step by providing e-cigarette sellers a new marketing strategy to ensure their product is in compliance with FDA regulations. This marketing strategy also includes testing of e-cigarette products, as well as, increased observation of product labels, designs, and warnings.
Why are E-Cigarettes Considered Dangerous?
Besides the obvious nicotine content that many e-cigarettes contain, most people consider e-cigarettes dangerous for three reasons. First, the lack of health information regarding long-term health effects from smoking e-cigarettes. Second, there have been over 100 reported explosions of e-cigarettes with many resulting in serious physical injuries. Lastly, the seemingly targeted marketing campaign of e-cigarettes to youth. E-cigarettes have become increasingly popular among teens and young adults while concerns about long-lasting health effects are going unanswered. In fact, one study into the health effects of e-liquids in e-cigarettes showed that certain types of e-liquids increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Read more here.
