A few days ago, our colleagues from the health site " Why Doctor »Published an interview with Prof. Bertrand Dautzenberg as part of a program called« Questions to the experts ». What are the truths about e-cigarettes? Should we reimburse it? Is it risky to vape? The famous practitioner of the pneumology department of the Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris was there to give his position.
“THE MOTORWAY A CONTRE-SENS OR THE MOTORWAY AT 150 KM / H! "
We obviously remember that famous sentence that the Professor Bertrand Dautzenberg likes to propose to draw a parallel between the risk of smoking and that of vaping: " Smoking is a bit like taking the motorway in the wrong direction, vaping is driving in the right direction but at 150 km / h ”.
For the show " Questions to experts "Presented by" Why Doctor "on the theme" The e-cigarette: today's truths“, Professor Bertrand Dautzenberg had a new opportunity to convey several messages concerning vaping.
Regarding the possibility of reimbursement of the e-cigarette such as the patch, he specifies " No, the e-cigarette is not a medicine. Smokers buy e-cigarettes as a pleasure product and there is no problem. »
