FDA, e-cigarettes, and demise of combusted tobacco

Summary:
Two professors explore the popularity of e-cigarettes and point out that they could lead to the 'demise' of cigarette smoking and save thousands of lives, but not until they are proven safe and are regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration.

The popularity of E-cigarettes could lead to the "demise" of cigarette smoking and save thousands of lives, but not until they are proven safe and are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). That's the message from two Georgetown University Medical Center researchers in a perspective piece published Oct. 16 in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Food and Drug Administration
In "The FDA, E-Cigarettes, and the Demise of Combusted Tobacco," Nathan K. Cobb, MD, and David B. Abrams, PhD, call on the FDA "to accelerate their regulations to eliminate uncertainty regarding safety, drive the substitution and use of clean nicotine, and hasten the demise of lethal combusted tobacco."
The authors point out that some published studies of e-cigarette devices suggest that they can be as safe and effective as nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products such as gum, patches and inhalers that are regulated by the FDA.
However, the authors explain that the "safety of individual devices cannot be assumed" because of "various chemicals and aerosolization techniques resulting in variable nicotine and contaminant delivery."
In addition to the FDA regulation of e-cigarettes, Cobb and Abrams suggest the agency use its authority to "cripple the addictive potential of lethal combusted products by mandating reduction of nicotine levels to below those of e-cigarettes and NRT products and eliminating flavorings." They also advocate for minimizing taxes on NRT while increasing taxes on cigarettes.
Finally, Cobb and Abrams call on the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research to streamline the approval process and remove regulatory burdens for companies willing to invest in research and development of clean-nicotine products like e-cigarettes.
"If e-cigarettes... are thoughtfully regulated, they could play the same role as NRT, but at a truly national population scale. Their use could shift smokers permanently away from lethal cigarettes to cleaner, safer nicotine products, saving innumerable lives," they conclude.

@Germlat,
For three years now, I quit smoking for my health purposes. I never tried any alternatives because my family advised me if I want to give up smoking, I should give it up fully. I experienced fatigue, depression, insomnia and many other withdrawal symptoms, but fortunately, got the support I needed and become successful with what I wanted.

@Germlat,
@Germlat, I've been smoking for almost 4 years. I tried and tried on giving up, but during my first attempt, I failed. I went back to smoking for three months, but decided to give it up again. And on the second try, I did it successfully. The quitting process was really hard, but worth it.

@Germlat,
E-cigarettes/vaping clearly isn't a miracle replacement for cigarettes.
