E-Cigarettes 95% Safer Than Smoking – Public Health England Research and Recommendations

A recent study published by Public Health England has started virally circulating the web in the past 24 hours.  Many news sites have picked it up (I personally first saw the article tied from a Reuters article).  While it has been reposted/shared/mentioned all across social media, I decided to take an in-depth read into the
