Reasonable public health professionals still have concerns about e-cigarettes and tobacco harm reduction

15:35 - 15:50

Although Public Health professionals and bodies in the UK are generally more optimistic about the role of e-cigarettes than in other parts of the world, reasonable professionals still have concerns. Between them, Martin Dockrell and Tim Macylo have been key in shaping PHE’s thinking on e-cigarettes and tobacco harm reduction, Martin as a harm reductionist and Tim as a toxicologist.
