Vapen has been associated with 200 health problems, including heart disease, chest pain and pneumonia, has revealed an official file.
Health watchdog the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has registered 74 reports of health problems presumably caused by e-cigarettes since 2014.
Of the 74 cases, 49 were classified as & # 39; serious & # 39 ;.

Experts are now calling for a national system to record every e-cigarette problem amid growing security concerns, according to The Sunday Times.
They are already banned in Brazil, India, Thailand and Singapore.
The MHRA insisted that all health problems be assessed and emphasized that they are not concrete evidence of the side effects of vapen.
But they said people who reported the ailments attributed their problems to the e-cigarettes.
It comes as a 57-year-old Briton, Terry Miller, has been named & # 39; the world's first victim of the deadly lipoid pneumonia disease likely due to vapors.
The former factory worker died in 2010 and his widow Glynis has since criticized British health watchdogs for their claims about the safety of e-cigarettes.

Doctors referred Miller's death to an investigation after finding oil in his lungs. A coroner has pronounced an open verdict.
In the US, 13 people died as a result of vape and 800 became ill.
Dr. Gareth Walters, adviser on occupational and interstitial lung diseases at the NHS Foundation Trust, says that we cannot yet estimate the risk because there is insufficient information.
Users of e-cigarettes are advised to check their shortness of breath or signs of cough or fever.
