In a move to warn the public of the potential health risks of e-cigarettes, the health ministry is planning to conduct an independent assessment of the chemical components in JUUL products with the consumer safety watchdog.

"As we did when heat-not-burn (HNB) IQOS e-cigarettes were first introduced, we will soon request the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety to conduct a study of JUUL e-cigarettes," Jung Young-gi, a ministry official, confirmed over the phone on Sunday. "We will check for the different types and levels of toxic substances present in these products."
