Dangers of cigarette use
The U.S. Center for Disease Control is launching an ad campaign warning consumers against the dual use of e-cigarettes and regular cigarettes.
E-cigarettes are battery-powered devic- es that heat a nicotine-laced liquid to produce an inhalable vapour. Some three in four adult e-cigarette users in the U.S. also smoke regular cigarettes. Those who cut down the number of cigarettes they smoke by adding another tobaccot product, like e-cigarettes, still facef serious health risks. Smokers must quit smoking completely to fully protect their health because even a fewf cigarettes a day are dangerous.
Most experts agree that while ecigarettes may be safer than traditional cigarettes, but data suggests many ecigarette users are also continuing to smoke regular cigarettes.
