The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said it wants e-cigarettes to be banned from public indoor spaces “until exhaled vapour is proven to be not harmful to bystanders”.

WHO has reviewed existing evidence around electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) and has submitted a paper which includes a range of regulatory options.

The UN health body wants a ban of e-cigarette sales to minors, warning that they pose a “serious threat” to foetuses and youths, and banning ‘e-cig’ makers from making health claims without strong scientific evidence

The recommendations will be debated by member states in October.

Companies and organisations in the UK are already starting to implement their own e-cigarette policies, as many non smokers believe smoke free workplace rules should include the use of e-cigs.
