Electronic Cigarettes – replacement for regular cigarettes?

E-cigarettes have the potential to benefit adult smokers who are not
pregnant if used as a complete substitute for regular cigarettes and
other smoked tobacco products.

E-cigarettes are not safe for youth, young adults, pregnant women, or
adults who do not currently use tobacco products.

While e-cigarettes have the potential to benefit some people and harm
others, scientists still have a lot to learn about whether e-cigarettes are
effective for quitting smoking.

If you’ve never smoked or used other tobacco products or e-cigarettes, don’t start.


E-cigarettes are known by many different names. They are sometimes called “e-cigs,” “e-hookahs,” “mods,” “vape pens,” “vapes,” “tank systems,” and “electronic nicotine delivery systems.”

Some e-cigarettes are made to look like regular cigarettes, cigars, or pipes. Some resemble pens, USB sticks, and other everyday items.


E-cigarettes produce an aerosol by heating a liquid that usually contains nicotine—the addictive drug in regular cigarettes, cigars, and other tobacco products—flavorings, and other chemicals that help to make the aerosol. Users inhale this aerosol into their lungs. Bystanders can also breathe in this aerosol when the user exhales into the air.

E-cigarettes can be used to deliver marijuana and other drugs.


ARE E-CIGARETTES LESS HARMFUL THAN REGULAR CIGARETTES?

E-cigarette aerosol generally contains fewer toxic chemicals than the deadly mix of 7,000 chemicals in smoke from regular cigarettes. However, e-cigarette aerosol is not harmless. It can contain harmful and potentially harmful substances, including nicotine, heavy metals like lead, volatile organic compounds, and cancer-causing agents.

WHAT IS IN E-CIGARETTE AEROSOL?

THE E-CIGARETTE AEROSOL THAT USERS BREATHE FROM THE DEVICE AND
EXHALE CAN CONTAIN HARMFUL AND POTENTIALLY HARMFUL SUBSTANCES:
It is difficult for consumers to know what e-cigarette products contain. For example,
some e-cigarettes marketed as containing zero percent nicotine have been found to
contain nicotine.
