I'm not an expert but I would probably say not as bad a cigarettes. There is arsenic and all other types of carcinogens in them. Nicotine isn't good for you but it's been proven to be more addictive than nicotine. I would think it would be a great way to ease into cutting back.
They are 100 percent healthy , you can order them with 0 nicotine ... there is no harmful chemicals in these products .. nicotine is not harmful .. it is everything else they put in cigars and cigarettes. I use V 2 vapor now and love them .. you can get them with small amounts of nicotine if you like .. it's like flavored steam / vapor .....
those e-cigs have nicotine in them but also many have the same thing in it as nail polish remover. I used to sell them in the mall near me until I got very sick from having to show off the product all day and I wondered how I got sick if it was just steam and nicotine. its not it has other chemicals in it but still not as bad as real cigarettes if used as a regular smoking alternative.
Considering cigarettes actually have chemicals in them along with the nicotine, and the e-cigarettes just have the nicotine, they are somewhat better. Not as healthy a quitting all together, but healthier nonetheless.
Yes electronic cigarettes are much healthier than tobacco cigarettes, because electronic cigarettes contain nicotine but do not contain cancer causing carcinogens, the nicotine is only an addictive substance and causes no harm.
