Electronics-Cigarettes - Safe or Not ?!

What is an Electronic Cigarette?

Electronic cigarettes (e.cigarettes) are battery-operated devices which allow smokers to have a "smoking experience" (complete with nicotine if they choose) without actually inhaling smoke.

Instead of smoke, the user inhales water vapor with flavoring and his choice of nicotine level.

The devices are generally made up of a battery, a cartridge, and an atomizer. Some e.cigarettes have cartridges that come with new atomizers built in. Others use a separate atomizer, which needs to be replaced periodically. Some e.cigarettes require the use of a separate liquid to be added to the cartridge by the user, while others come with sealed cartridges that are disposable once the cartridge has been used up.

A variety of flavors is available, depending on the manufacturer of each brand. The devices are being sold as a way to smoke in places where smoking is otherwise prohibited.
