Do you partake in e-cigarettes? Annoyed by it? Concerned about health-related issues? Here is a bit more information for you....
Apparently, following a study related to e-cigarette consequences, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine discovered this:
”We concur with their primary conclusions that e-cigarettes are less toxic than combustible tobacco products, that there is great variability among e-cigarette products and that there is limited evidence that e-cigarettes may be effective aids to promote smoking cessation. The report also found that there is substantial evidence that e-cigarette use increases risk of ever using combustible tobacco cigarettes among youth and young adults.”
Unfortunately, consumers don't have a quick or easy way to find out differences – and health risks – related to the various e-cigarette devices available for purchase. The FDA won't fully regulate e-cigarettes until 2022, and that only complicates matters even further.

I dislike them because they are health negating habit causing devices. They are used with a widely varying (from manufacturer to manufacturer and from product to product) levels of chemicals known to harm health and have not been proven safe. I also dislike them because the lithium batteries have a history of exploding and/or causing fires. There is also research that shows these devices introduce people to this habit and a fairly large number move on to traditional forms of cigarettes.
