UEL public lecture on how safe e-cigarettes are to ‘smoke’

A public talk on whether electronic cigarettes are safe as an alternative to tobacco is being held at the University of East London.

A research survey found three-out-of-four people used e-cigarettes as an alternative to smoking, with almost nine-out-of-10 not having smoked for several weeks or had dramatically cut down. Most used them in pubs, restaurants and clubs where smoking is illegal.

Lecturer Dr Lynne Dawkins explains how e-cigarettes work and what they are when she gives the talk on July 3 at 7pm at the university’s Stratford Campus in Water Lane. Refreshments available—but there’s no smoking!
