Bought a pack of smokes in the UK recently? If so, you'll have noticed that Brits are now being sold cigarettes in an underwhelming mud-brown packaging. This initiative—alongside standardized brand fonts and more extensive health warning labeling—is all part of the EU Tobacco Products Directive (TPD). The directive, which came into effect in May of last year, is a part of the TPD's aim to further reduce tobacco consumption across EU member states, thereby cutting down on those combustion-related diseases that we are forever reminded of on our cigarette boxes.

On May 5, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released its long-awaited regulations on electronic cigarettes and vaping products. These rules, which require every one of the more than 10,000 vaping products on the market to submit a pre–market approval application simply to stay on the market, were widely applauded by antismoking and health groups. What may not have been apparent at the time, but what I have discovered through a detailed analysis of the 499-page regulations, is that these regulations not only fail to protect the public’s health, but they impose a public safety hazard.

Vaping indoors is “unlikely” to pose any risk to bystanders, according to a research paper carried out by three educational institutions.
Presented at the fourth Workplace and Indoor Aerosols conference in Barcelona, the paper is the first of its kind to show that exhaled e-cigarette particles evaporate within a matter of seconds.
