It’s true. Using e cigarettes is far safer than smoking cigarettes.
First of all, “e cigarettes do not produce tar or carbon monoxide – two main toxins found in cigarettes”. One of the biggest reports was published in 2015 by the Public Health England Report stating that “e cigarettes are 95 percent less harmful than tobacco”.
An e cigarette contains e liquid which itself does contain nicotine. Although nicotine is addictive cancer research UK’s Dr McEwen confirmed that “ nicotine does not cause smoking related diseases; such as cancers and heart disease”.
So nicotine is addictive but it causes no harm and more people everyday are switching to e cigarettes as a safer/ healthier alternative to smoking cigarettes. As shown in the ‘Action on smoking and health study’ that almost half of the UK’s 2.8 million e cigarette users are former smokers.
