Not really: They may be better than regular smoking , but some contain non healthy ingredients as well. Speak to your doctor and show him the brand that you might intend to use and get his opinion as well.

No: FDA has questioned the safety of electronic cigarettes as
variable amounts of nicotine and traces of toxic chemicals, including known cancer-causing substances were found in their informal study.
