As surprising as it may seem, the World Health Organization (WHO) is strongly opposed to e-cigarettes.

In its view, nicotine is an enemy that must be defeated. Vaping does allow nicotine consumption, and even though it removes most of the risks of smoking, the WHO is still strictly against nicotine consumption. That means it is equally opposed to vaping.

The WHO therefore takes every opportunity to tell us what a dangerous invention the e-cigarette is, and regularly advises countries to ban it.
