Not everyone agreed with the report’s findings. Edward Anselm, MD, a senior fellow at the nonpartisan think tank the R Street Institute, said in a statement that the report “focuses on youth experimentation and completely omits the opportunities for harm reduction these devices offer for adult smokers.”

Dr Anselm, also an assistant clinical professor of medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, said it represented “a continuation of the recent demonization of nicotine by some in the public health community, to the detriment of 40 million adult smokers who could be helped to reduce their risk to tobacco-related disease substantially.”
