Electronic cigarettes

Electronic cigarettes (e cigarettes) are battery operated products designed to turn nicotine and other chemicals into a vapor. You then inhale the vapor. These products are often made to look like

  • Cigarettes
  • Cigars
  • Pipes
  • Pens

E Cigarettes may contain ingredients that are known to be toxic to humans. Because clinical studies about the safety of e cigarettes have not been submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), you have no way of knowing

  • If they are safe
  • Which chemicals they contain
  • How much nicotine you are inhaling

Nicotine is a highly addictive substance. Additionally, these products may be attractive to kids. Using e cigarettes may lead kids to try other tobacco products including conventional cigarettes which are known to cause disease and lead to premature death.

With e cigarettes there are many unknowns, including the unknown health effects of long term use. Currently, there are no e cigarettes approved by FDA for therapeutic uses so they cannot be recommended as a cessation aid. For smokers who want to quit cigarettes there are FDA approved treatments which have been proved to be safe and to work, including

  • Nicotine gum
  • Nicotine skin patches
  • Nicotine lozenges
  • Nicotine oral inhaled products
  • Nicotine nasal spray
  • Zyban
  • Chantix

Retrieved May 10, 2009. “But then 1992’s “Somewhere in California,” which won the Cannes Film Festival’s short film Palme D’Or, offers the delicious spectacle of Iggy Pop and Tom Waits meeting in some remote dumpy bar, with Iggy playing the shaggy, eager to please puppy while the edgy Waits finds ways to take constant umbrage.”
