PARIS — Governments should ban the use of electronic cigarettes indoors and in public places, and outlaw tactics to lure young users, the World Health Organization said in a report released Tuesday. It also raised concerns about the role of big tobacco companies in the fast-growing market.
Considering the numerous uncertainties surrounding e-cigarettes, which have been on the market for less than a decade, the United Nations organization said it was appropriate to prohibit their use indoors "until exhaled vapor is proven to be not harmful to bystanders."
