Smoke, fire and mirrors: The e-cigarette debate
Can a rechargeable battery, linked to an atomiser and cartridge of liquid nicotine, 'massively' reduce the individual and population risks of traditional cigarette smoking?

The jury is out scientifically, with South African role players on either side producing evidence for and against the device.
