Are e cigarettes and vapor cigarettes just as harmful as real cigarettes? Can they cause cancer as well or are they better for you?

Are e cigarettes and vapor cigarettes just as harmful as real cigarettes? Can they cause cancer as well or are they better for you?

Addiction: If you are trying to stop smoking tobacco, they may help you. If you are thinking of taking up e-cigs as a non-smoker, you are VERY ill-advised. You're asking to become a slave to the most potent of all addictions. The cancer risk is probably real though not really so high. But who wants to a slave to something that's not even really any fun? ...Read more

Hi someone told me that smoking e-cigarettes can put water into your lungs ?!? Is it possible by any way?

Hi someone told me that smoking e-cigarettes can put water into your lungs ?!? Is it possible by any way?

Not that I know of: But we don't really know what they do, since the courts have ruled that the fda doesn't have jurisdiction over them, and they are really not regulated. There are oils, propylene glycol, flavorings, additives, preservatives in addition to the nicotine, and what these do to our respiratory system (and other systems) is simply not known. They are probably safer than smoking cigarette tobacco-. ...Read more

Can damage from smoking water-filtered shisha be related quantitatively to smoking other tobacco products, such as cigarettes?

Can damage from smoking water-filtered shisha be related quantitatively to smoking other tobacco products, such as cigarettes?

Let me explain: Just like regular tobacco, shisha contains nicotine. In fact, in a 60-minute hookah session, smokers are exposed to 100 to 200 times the volume of smoke inhaled from a single cigarette.
