Could New E-Cigarettes Help Prevent Cancer?

According to Reuters, tobacco companies such as Philip Morris International and Marlboro Inc. have now brought scientists in-house to help produce e-cigarettes that could potentially reduce the risk of diseases associated with smoking. If these industries can succeed with their goals, most likely that will mean less regulation by the FDA on their products. Some scientists are looking forward to the opportunity to help produce e-cigarettes that may reduce the risk of disease, while others are still skeptical of the tobacco companies motives. Some scientists and doctors also do not agree with helping a company that still sells harmful traditional cigarettes. It will be interesting to track the path that tobacco companies take in the coming years to see if they can and will create products that reduce the risk of disease.
