E Cigs… Good or Bad?

It’s been more than 3 months since the state wide smoking ban, and for some smokers a new alternative has been gaining a lot of attention. They’re called E-Cigs, or otherwise known as electronic cigarettes. The nicotine water vapor inhaler is a battery operated device that contains cartridges filled with nicotine and other chemicals.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration are concerned about the E–Cigs. Based on laboratory tests, the FDA believes the popular smoking devices contain carcinogens and other toxic chemicals dangerous to humans, and the Marquette county health department agrees.

Another concern that the Marquette county health department brought up was flavored E–Cigs being tempted to children. The department believes the flavored devices may seem candy–like to children.
