E-cigarettes R bad.: Technically speaking, we don't really know the safety of those electronic cigarettes in the long term; newer studies are revealing evidence of harm. But what they do help with is removing your emotional and mental attachment to actual cigarettes, which could ultimately help you quit everything. As well, there seem to be fewer ingredients in them; there are 42 carcinogens in cigarettes.
