The NHMRC have recently released a national CEO Statement on e-cigarettes.

Whilst noting that the safety and health effects of e-cigarettes are contested, and that the lack of long-term evidence makes it difficult to assess the relative harms and benefits of using e-cigarettes compared with smoking tobacco cigarettes, it does assert that use can be harmful through exposed to chemicals and toxins that have the potential to cause adverse health effects.  It also notes that people who have never smoked may be more likely to take up tobacco smoking if they use e-cigarettes.
