Same as cigarettes: It is the smoking not the way you smoke. Don't smoke.

Wish I could: But we have little data. Up until now, e-cigarettes have not been regulated by the food and drug administration (regulations have been proposed but not approved). While it is likely that inhaling vaporized nicotine is less harmful than smoking combusted tobacco products, we do not know what the propylene glycol, other ingredients (flavorings, additives, preservatives) are, let alone what they do.
