E-cigarette maker to challenge EU rules: Totally Wicked, a Lancashire based manufacturer of electronic cigarettes, has been given the go ahead by the Royal Courts of Justice in London to challenge controls over the production, sale, and marketing of the devices, set to be introduced by the European Union in 2016.

Can users of waterpipes be helped to quit through smoking cessation interventions? | Cochrane

Waterpipe smoking is a traditional method of tobacco use, especially in the Eastern Mediterranean Region, but its use is now spreading worldwide. It is smoked socially and often shared between friends or family at home, or in bars and cafes that provide waterpipes to patrons. In the absence of relevant data, many waterpipe tobacco smokers believe this form of tobacco use is less lethal and addictive than other methods of tobacco smoking, because the smoke passes through water on its way to the user. At least in some cultures, women and girls are more likely to use a waterpipe than other forms of tobacco, and it is popular among younger smokers. Current evidence suggests that waterpipe smoking may be as addictive as other forms of tobacco use, that some users have difficulty quitting on their own and that they may experience similar risks to health as cigarette smokers.
