COLLEGE STATION, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Electronic cigarettes are helping people kick their smoking habit, but do they still cause cancer?

The FDA hasn’t quite decided on that, but e-cigarette salesman Andy McDowell says the electronic smokes are still the better alternative to other products designed to help smokers quit.

However, the FDA won’t approve of e-cigarettes yet because they think they may cause cancer. The weird thing is, McDowell argues, real cigarettes are proven to cause cancer but are still legal.

He says, “If tobacco cigarettes are still legal and people are smoking them even though they contain tar and other harmful toxins, then why not replace them with e-cigarettes which just contain nicotine?”

McDowell thinks it’s “obvious” that e- cigarettes are less harmful and has used them to quit smoking himself, so he’s urging the FDA to get with the program.
