E-Cigarettes News

E-cigarettes, also known as electronic cigarettes or vapes, are handheld devices that simulate the experience of smoking tobacco. They work by heating a liquid (commonly referred to as e-liquid or vape juice) that typically contains nicotine, flavorings, and other chemicals to create an aerosol, which the user inhales. Introduced in the early 2000s, e-cigarettes have been marketed as a less harmful alternative to conventional cigarettes, potentially aiding in smoking cessation. However, their impact on health is still a subject of ongoing research and debate. While e-cigarettes are generally agreed to contain fewer toxic substances than traditional cigarettes, they are not free of health risks and have been linked to respiratory and cardiovascular issues. The rise in e-cigarette use, particularly among young people, has also raised concerns about nicotine addiction and the potential for e-cigarettes to serve as a gateway to traditional tobacco use. Regulatory responses vary globally, with some countries embracing them as harm reduction tools and others imposing strict regulations.
