Letters: Another view of e-cigarettes

October 13, 2013

Re "New product, old concerns," Letters, Oct. 8

Raymond J. Melrose, a USC pathology professor emeritus, advocates regulating "e-cigarettes just like it does other tobacco products until these can be proved safe."

For people who are already addicted to nicotine, e-cigarettes are a potentially lifesaving alternative. Regulation will only create additional barriers to switching.

It's truly ironic that Melrose, a former high-ranking official of the American Cancer Society, advocates policy changes that would risk more cancer deaths.
