There are reports from the US and the Netherlands about e-cigarette users who suddenly come down with unknown lung diseases.
Prof Frank Bayens insists that any link between the electronic cigarette and lung disease is yet to be made scientifically: “It’s far from being proved that the electronic cigarette really causes lung disease.”
Research in the US revealed that victims are believed to have filled their e-cigarettes with “other substances” than those sold in tobacco stores.
Prof Frank Bayens: “All research, and this research has not yet been finalised, shows that we are not talking about e-cigarettes filled with nicotine containing substances. We’re talking about cannabis oils purchased illegally. These can trigger acute reactions.”
