Yes: The nicotine has inherent health problems but much less than all the other stuff in the smoke
Dr. Christian Mayaud

Safer but Not Safe: Most ecigarettes and liquids used in nicotine vaporizers do NOT contain tobacco products. The Risk is in the Flavor used. FLAVORLESS nicotine liquid contains only two ingredients -- glycerin and nicotine. Tobacco contains over 4000 other compounds including over 70 well-known carcinogens. While nicotine alone may be relatively safe, the rest of tobacco smoke is definitely NOT.
