Rebecca S. Williams, MHS, PhD, a UNC Lineberger member and researcher with the UNC Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, was senior author of a recent study that investigated whether e-liquid industry prohibits Internet sales to minors and employs safety measures to prevent accidental poisonings.

In the study, researchers found that irrespective of trade association membership or vendor popularity, online vendors of e-liquids are not taking the proper precautions in preventing sales to minors.
