Regulate E-Cigarettes, Cancer Specialists and Researchers Urge

Two organizations representing cancer researchers and specialists are calling on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to bring e-cigarette regulations more in line with those of traditional cigarettes.

The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) issued the recommendations jointly.

The groups called for e-cigarette makers to give the FDA a full list of their products’ ingredients, HealthDay reports. They want warning labels on all e-cigarette packaging and ads to tell consumers about the dangers of nicotine addiction. They also are asking for a ban on all marketing and selling of e-cigarettes to minors. They want the FDA to require childproof caps on containers for liquid nicotine used for e-cigarettes.
