Rapid responses are electronic comments to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on bmj.com. A rapid response is first posted online. If you need the URL (web address) of an individual response, simply click on the response headline and copy the URL from the browser window. A proportion of responses will, after editing, be published online and in the print journal as letters, which are indexed in PubMed. Rapid responses are not indexed in PubMed and they are not journal articles. The BMJ reserves the right to remove responses which are being wilfully misrepresented as published articles.
Vaporizer refills of e-liquid (or “juice”) are available in little colored bottles in different flavors & nicotine concentrations. The colored bottles containing flavors, better to say “flavored bottles of poison”, attract infants and young children. Now nicotine is in the hands of minors, recently there are reports of e-liquid poisonings in childrens and in adults. Accidental e-liquid ingestion is an emerging paediatric problem.
Strictly prohibit the promotion of e-cigarettes in print, on TV and lifestyle advertising. Ban the sale of e-cigarettes to minors and schoolchildren. This may initiate nicotine use and may lead to tobacco smoking in kids, children and among non-smokers.
