The Ministry of Health has finally and very belatedly come out with an announcement that the Quantum Pendant (Fusionexcel) and SE Pendant (Cosway) are highly radioactive and must be banned by the Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB). This announcement was made by the Minister of Health who said the matter had been discussed in the Cabinet last Friday.
Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM) and the Consumers’ Association of Penang (CAP) welcome news reports stating that the Penang Island Municipal Council (MPPP) has received the green light from the deputy public prosecutor's office to take legal action against those who illegally cleared land in Bukit Relau.
CAP is appalled with the finding that the use of e-cigarettes is becoming popular among the youths in Malaysia.
It is even more appalling that e-cigarettes are widely used by students. This was revealed by a teacher from a secondary school in Penang who caught his students smoking e-cigarette. The teacher handed over the e-cigarette to CAP and informed that approximately 60 students in his school smoke e-cigarettes.
