A retired Brighton doctor has defended e-cigarettes from what he described as “the ultimate Brussels insanity”.
Anthony Kenney, 74, from Ovingdean, said in a letter to The Times published today (Friday 4 March): “The tobacco companies must be delighted by the demise last week of the UK charity Quit, which has been helping smokers to stop since 1926.
“Sir Richard Doll, who demonstrated the link between tobacco cigarette smoking and lung cancer and strongly supported Quit, must be turning in his grave.
“The tobacco companies must be even more delighted by the possibility of electronic cigarettes (probably safe) becoming as expensive as tobacco cigarettes (definitely dangerous).
“A high tax on e-cigarettes represents the ultimate Brussels insanity.”
Anthony Kenney delivered 3,000 babies during his career as an obstetrician and gynaecologist and oversaw a further 20,000 births.
