In brief: Safer, not without
Elctric cigarettes provide nicotine, the substance that induces addiction and craving of smoking.
Regular cigarettes contain many other chemical substances/preservatives, some are carcinogenic (causes cancer), thus they are worse than electric ones. Some e-cigarettes were found to have dangerous chemicals/carcinogens as well. Thus, a bit safer but not without risk. Consult doc. Good luck.
