Are”E-cigarettes” dangerous products?

“E-cigarettes” are advertised as a 100% healthy alternative to regular cigarettes and are they are promoted as a safe alternative to smoking and a way to help people quit smoking. The only problem, says the Food and Drug Administration, is there is no scientific evidence to back up the claims made by the e-cigarette manufacturers, distributors and marketers. The FDA fears that e-cigarettes could endanger a user’s health and are analyzing the electronic cigarettes.

Electronic or “e-cigarettes” use a battery and LED light to simulate smoking. The products contains nicotine and other compounds are atomized and inhaled by the user. The FDA says that some analysis of electronic cigarettes show they contain carcinogens and toxic chemicals including diethylene glycol which is an ingredient used in antifreeze. Nicotine is a highly addictive drug and it is very difficult to abstain from once a user becomes addicted, regardless of the delivery method.

The FDA is also concerned that there are no age restrictions on the sale of electronic cigarettes, especially to teenagers.

  1. Alex says:

    I got the ‘Smoke Tip’ e-cig. its awesome. it has literally cured my chronic bronchitis. My lungs have recovered completely. my doctor did a chest x-ray after listening to my dramatically improved lung function and found NO SIGNS OF Bronchitis or pneumonia for the first time in 5 years. I actually heard him say “How the F@CK?” as he was looking at my x-ray. He had taken a x-ray 1 month prior and it showed an extensive infection.

  2. I smoked cigarettes for forever and giving them up was literally impossible. I bought all of the quitting products but not one helped. Then I saw the electronic cigarette . The electronic cigarette uses a nicotine liquid that contains nothing but nicotine. No cancerous substances at all. They have actually changed my life.
