In an open letter to the World Health Organization some of the world’s leading scientists and medical experts have said that e-cigs could save hundreds of millions of lives from the dangers of smoking.

The open letter, which can be read here (pdf file), in a nutshell says that any regulation against e-cigs and vaping or classifying e-cigs and vaping as a tobacco product would only prolong the public consumption of cigarettes. Or as I like to say they’re basically asking the WHO to have a little common sense.

Compared to tobacco use vaping is still in its infancy. Let’s not kill it in the crib before it has a chance to save lives from the horrors of smoking related disease.

Thanks to my good friend Neal for the tip.
