We Don't Know: Since vaporized tobacco is relatively new, no studies have been done to show for certain. However, since you are not burning the tobacco, you do not get exposed to tar & some other carcinogens that smoking exposes you to. It's best to avoid all tobacco products but vaporized use may show promise to help some reduce & eventually quite smoking.
