The FDA is looking into “low risk” tobacco alternatives, such as electronic cigarettes. While customers continue to flock to the e-cig, the FDA and others are investigating claims that they are not any safer than traditional tobacco cigarettes. While the verdict is still out, and probably will be for many years, customers will still continue to buy e-cigs. Even though the data is known concerning the safety of tobacco cigarettes, sales are still soaring. As an online tobacco merchant, you should be aware of any changes that the FDA may push onto the market.
E-cigs, or electronic cigarettes, are gaining popularity for many reasons. From the price point to the ease of use, to the supposed safety of the device, customers are throwing out their traditional tobacco cigarettes to switch over. However, while some evidence supports its safety, other evidence does not show that it is any safer an option. This is why the FDA is looking over the product. The FDA is looking to change the way that online tobacco merchants market this product, as many market them as the safer alternative.
