Call for FDA regulation of e-cigarettes

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been urged to act quickly to regulate electronic cigarettes.

Four Democratic representatives wrote to the FDA commissioner, Margaret A. Hamburg, quoting a recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that had found the percentage of adolescents using electronic cigarettes was growing rapidly.

CDC data was said to have suggested also that electronic cigarettes could serve as a gateway product to nicotine addiction.
