Electronic Cigarettes By Kayla Whitemyer
Electronic Cigarettes (“ecigs”) • May also be called a personal vaporizer • Delivers nicotine by means of a vapor instead of actual smoke • Doesn’t have tobacco, tar, flame, carbon monoxide, stub, ash, or any of the harsh smells found in traditional cigarettes
How it works • Ecigs work differently depending on the company and version, but they all contain certain elements. • They have three different elements: a. cartridge of liquid nicotine b. atomizer c. battery • Liquid nicotine is vaporized by atomizer this produces the vapor effect
Electronic Cigarettes Inc. -has an atomizer button that controls the release of vapor -doesn’t look like a cigarette http: //www. electroniccigarettesinc. com/ -has a disposable atomizer, which means that each nicotine cartridge has a disposable atomizer in it. -disposable atomizer lessens any clogging and increases amount of puffs per cartridge

Health Risks of Ecigs • NOT been approved by the Food and Drug Administration because the FDA consider them to not have enough scientific proof that they are safe and effective • Ecigs have not been on the market long enough to determine any health risks despite the constant reassurance from electronic cigarette companies.
