Backchat will return next Tuesday when we will talk about electronic cigarettes. The Government has plans to regulate e-cigarettes, heat not burn products and herbal cigareetes in the same way as traditional cigarettes. Is this the right approach, or do you agree with the Hong Kong Council on Smoking and Health that vapour products should be completely banned? What's better for public health? Should e-cigarettes be welcomed as a way to stop conventional smoking? Call us with your questions and comments on 233388266 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
