Earlier this month, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced it will regulate electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, the same way it regulates traditional tobacco products. Many smokers turn to e-cigarettes to stop smoking; despite some claims of effectiveness, there are still concerns, as the health risks of e-cigarettes are largely unknown.

Here to discuss e-cigarettes are program leader of Cancer Etiology, Control and Prevention at the University of Cincinnati Cancer Institute, deputy director of the Center for Environmental Genetics, Professor at the UC Department of Environmental Health and Epidemiologist Member of the UC Cancer Institute and Cincinnati Cancer Center, Dr. Susan Pinney; Professor at the UC College of Pharmacy, Dr. Jane Pruemer; and Professor at the UC College of Medicine and Director for the Toxicology Excellence for Risk Assessment (TERA) Center, Dr. Michael Dourson.
