Are E-Cigarettes Safe?

A recent study in London has found that E-Cigarettes, an electronic gadget that essentially delivers nicotine using the same motions as cigarettes, has been noted to help some people quit smoking.

On one side of the room are those marketing the device stating that they are safer then regular cigarettes as they don’t have the tar and other cancer causing ingredients. On the other side are people who worry that they simply reinforce smoking behaviour, encourage children to smoke and most concerning, we still don’t know if they are safe for consumption.

In Australia e-cigarettes are yet to be approved for safe use.

What are your thoughts? Do e-cigarettes represent a new “safe” way to smoke or are they simply replacing one harmful activity for another.

Yours in good health.
