An electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) is a device that allows users to inhale nicotine by heating a vapor of a solution containing nicotine, propylene and flavorings.

As there is no combustion, there is no smoke like a traditional cigarette.

But even though they have been described as carrying a lower risk than cigarettes, a growing number of studies are showing health hazards.

Electronic cigarettes do not produce tar or carbon monoxide, but the vapor contains some harmful chemicals.

Nicotine is the highly addictive chemical that makes it difficult for smokers to quit smoking.

Almost three million people in Britain use electronic cigarettes and more than nine million Americans.

TYPES:

1. standard electronic cigarette

Battery device containing e-liquid nicotine.

Vaporizes flavored nicotine liquid.

2. Juul

Very similar to normal electronic cigarettes, but with a more elegant design and a higher concentration of nicotine.

Thanks to its "nicotine salts", manufacturers claim that a pod supplies the amount of nicotine in a pack of cigarettes.

It is composed of an electronic cigarette (battery and temperature control) and an e-liquid capsule that is inserted in the end.

The liquid contains nicotine, chemicals and flavorings.

Like other vaping devices, it vaporizes the e-liquid.

3. IQOS by Philip Morris

In the form of a ballpoint pen, charged like an iPod.

Vaporize tobacco

It is known as smokeless device "do not burn the heat", which heats the tobacco but does not burn it (at 350 C compared to 600 C as normal cigarettes do).

The company claims that this method reduces the exposure of users to the carcinogen of tobacco burning.
