Are e-cigarettes safe?

There has been a lot of debate about the safety of e-cigarettes.

Dr Michael Siegel from the Boston University’s School of Public Health provides evidence that e-cigarettes can be a positive alternative to smoking, contrary to what some authorities like to say:

“…the availability of electronic cigarettes could be a life saver and it is a life saver for many people.. So the idea that the government may take these off the market or restrict them or severely restrict the kinds of claims that companies can make in terms of the truthful aspects of what their products offer… I think it’s unfortunate. “
