Tobacco Smoke: Tobacco smoke has more than tobacco itself. Estimates for tobacco smoke range from 4000 to 5000 but ONLY 100 of those pose significant health risks. That is why UNFLAVORED ecigarette liquids are safer (but not safe) Hazardous Compounds in Tobacco Smoke http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3084482/ Chemistry and Toxicology of Cigarette Smoke http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK53014/
