At the Georgia Cancer Center's cessation program, electronic-cigarettes or e-cigarettes are not recommended as an alternative to conventional cigarettes nor as an aid to quitting. They contain toxic chemicals and metals including: propylene glycol, formaldehyde, cadmium, lead and nickel. The nicotine in electronic-cigarettes is especially harmful to the developing brain of youth. They pose a health risk to the brain of a developing baby, so pregnant women should avoid electronic-cigarettes.
Other health consequences of e-cigarettes include:
E-cigarettes do not emit "harmless water vapor." The secondhand aerosol contains nicotine, ultra-fine particles that lodge deep into the lungs, and low levels of chemical and metal toxins that are known to cause cancer.
