    BBC News E-cigarette use by children concerns fuelled by research

    Maybe of interest here?
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    "Three times as many children have tried e-cigarettes as have smoked tobacco, according to official figures.

    It has reinforced concerns that using the devices could become a "gateway" to smoking cigarettes.
    The study found 6% of 10 to 11-year-olds in Wales said they had used e-cigarettes, compared to 2% who had smoked tobacco."

    There's plenty more in the news article, including a link to the full Childhood Exposure to Tobacco Smoke (CHETS) report.

    Unfortunately with places like the Poundworld selling the stuff it's so much easier to get a hold of, our local one has got juice sitting on a bottom shelf in the middle of a normal isle where any kid can pick it up and stick in their pocket.
