US Health Officials Warn Against E-Cigarette Use


By Chris Scott Barr

If you’re looking for a way to kick your smoking habit, there’s a a chance that you’ve at least considered e-cigarette solutions. We’ve seen a few around, and always the manufacturer has gone to great lengths to express how much safer they are from a regular tobacco cigarette. Well apparently you might want to think twice before dropping the cash on one.

According to US health officials, these things might be plenty harmful to your health. First, since they still promote the use of nicotine, they probably won’t help anyone kick the habit. In fact, users will be likely to return to cigarettes. That’s not the biggest concern. Apparently when testing samples from e-cigarette manufacturers NJOY and Smoking Everywhere they found samples with diethylene glycol, which is used in antifreeze, as well as several different carcinogens. Long story short, these things aren’t the way to go if you want to quit smoking.
