They derecognised websites that offer "electronic cigarette"

Web sites touting the sale of “best electronic cigarette in the UK” as a┬ásubstitute for snuff consumption were discharged for disposal of the National Administration of Medicines, Food and Medical Technology (ANMAT).

The decision of the agency under the Ministry of Health of the Nation was after considering that the efficacy and safety of “electronic cigarette” as a substitute for quitting was not scientifically proven, nor its exact chemical composition is known.

“The public are reminded to not be acquired or used such devices and may be denounced illegitimate internet sales and misleading advertising of health products” , the Ministry of Health said in a statement.

The complaint of the ANMAT to deregister the websites was to the Directorate of Internet Domain Registries, and covered the www.fumarelectronico.com.ar pages, www.ecigarrillo.com.ar and www.argentinagreensmoke.com. ar, as officially it reported.

They were discharged after negotiations, concretized through the Program Monitoring and Control of Advertising and Promotion ANMAT.
