Are Electronic Cigarettes Safe

 Are Electronic Cigarettes safe? - E-Cigarette Clinical Trials

Clinical trials carried out in New Zealand by Dr Murray, Laugeson of Health New Zealand.

 The test found that the E-Cigarette was very safe relative to tobacco cigarettes, and also safe in absolute terms on all measurements applied.

Using micro-electronics it vaporizes separately for each puff very small quantities of nicotine dissolved in propylene glycol, two small well-known molecules with excellent safety profiles. Each puff contains one to two thirds the nicotine in a tobacco cigarette’s puff. The cartridge liquid is tobacco-free and no combustion occurs."
