In a new report, the World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended stricter rules for the use of e-cigarettes.
These include a ban on the marketing and sales of e-cigarettes to children, and on using the devices indoors in both public spaces and workplaces.
In the report, WHO also calls for a halt to claims that e-cigarettes can help tobacco smokers to quit until there is sound evidence to support this. It also warns that, while the devices appear to be less harmful than tobacco cigarettes, they could carry health risks for young people and unborn babies.
