[Correspondence] Electronic cigarettes: adolescent health and wellbeing

We read with interest John N Newton and colleagues’ Comment (Feb 6, p 639),1 in which they incorrectly state that “experimentation with ECs [electronic cigarettes] has had no detectable effect on youth smoking rates and increased availability of ECs has not interrupted declining trends in youth smoking in many countries”. We believe that this statement is incorrect and is not supported by evidence in the literature.
