British experts are taking a different route in terms of societal acceptance for e-cigarettes. While there is a growing skepticism and opposition in the U.S., these experts believe that if smokers are going to switch to e-cigarettes, there will be a significant reduction in death as well as disability caused by the country's most notorious killer – tobacco smoking.

"You can know the whole Bible, you can know all the liturgical rubrics, you can know all theology, but that knowledge does not make loving automatic," Francis said on Wednesday, as reported by the Catholic News Service. "Love has another path."
The Roman Catholic Church leader suggested that to ignore the suffering of another person is to ignore God, and delved into the parable of the good Samaritan, as found in the Bible. more >>
