To the editor:

Some four years ago the FDA warned of a crisis of addiction when it tried to ban flavored fluid for e-cigarettes.

White House officials were considering including a ban as part of a new tobacco control rule. Over a course of 46 days they met with more than 100 tobacco and industry lobbyists and small business advocates. A cost benefit analysis suggested the economic burden on vaping shops appear to outweigh potential health benefits of a ban.

They concluded wrongly that vaping was safe.

Mistakes are costly, we need to do a better job.
