Safety of Electronic Cigarettes Up for Debate

More individuals are consuming electronic cigarettes in order to assist them in quitting tobacco, although the devices aren’t Food and Drug Administration approved for smoking cessation. Users of the e-cigarettes state this vapor is a lot less toxic than regular smoke because there isn’t tar from combustion of tobacco.
