Electronic cigarettes (or e-cigarettes) are a new and emerging trend in today’s society, and are designed to mimic cigarettes.  E-cigarettes are flooding the market and can be found  in a variety of flavors, nicotine levels, and varieties, all claiming to be a safer and “less dangerous” alternative to smoking cigarettes.  Because electronic cigarettes are currently unregulated, there is limited information available to the general public regarding the contents and health effects associated with these products, however, health research is currently underway regarding use and safety of e-cigarettes.
