I just wanted to throw it out there.
Mr. Rankin had another question, which I want to ask in a different way. I'm wondering if anybody has thought about it from an economic point of view. If you had an extra dollar to spend, where would you help people the most? Would it be in spending it on reducing smoking or on reducing exposure to radon? Has anybody tried to figure out which one of those two will have a bigger effect on lung cancer? It's an economics question, so maybe it's too hard to calculate or something.

Okay.
The y axis of these graphs doesn't cross at zero. Presumably there's a whole bunch of lung cancer from smoking, and then on top of that you're seeing the effects—

Mr. Chairman, I am sitting in today on behalf of a colleague, Dr. Hedy Fry. I don't have the medical background that she does, of course, but I do have an interest in this issue and I know someone who is trying to quit smoking and is using e-cigarettes in the hope that will help.
What is the evidence in terms of assisting people to stop smoking actual cigarettes by using e-cigarettes?

I will let you answer that, but maybe you can answer this as well. Is there any doubt in your mind that for someone who is trying to stop smoking, an e-cigarette is less harmful than an actual cigarette with tobacco in it that's lit and burning and there is smoke produced?
