Are E-Cigarettes Safe?

According to MNN.com, “When e-cigarettes were introduced to the U.S. market in 2007, they were billed as a safe alternative to conventional tobacco cigarettes. But since then various studies have found that these e-cigs may not be so harmless after all.”

E-cigarettes vapor contains two cancer-causing chemicals, propylene glycol and glycerine as published in a journal of ‘Environment Science and Technology’ in 2016.

Berkeley Lab researcher and the study’s corresponding author Hugo Destaillats said in a statement, “Advocates of e-cigarettes say emissions are much lower than from conventional cigarettes, so you’re better off using e-cigarettes”

He added “I would say, that may be true for certain users — for example, long-time smokers that cannot quit — but the problem is, it doesn’t mean that they’re healthy. Regular cigarettes are super unhealthy. E-cigarettes are just unhealthy.”

Recently San Francisco officials voted on Tuesday for a complete ban on the sale of e-cigarettes becoming the first city in the US to ban e-cigarettes.
