Many consumers may think that e-cigarettes are a safer way for smoking. But this new trend of alternative smoking has lead many new consumers. The whole point for e-cigarettes was to provide a healthier alternative than regular tobacco cigarettes. Both e-cigarettes and regular ones are unhealthy for our health.

E-cigarettes statistics has grown over the years. Lately, new consumers are High School students because it is very accessible to buy a vaporizer. Being a New trend maybe young adults get attracted to this because they fall under peer pressure. Also, there have been many incidents in which people have had because of carrying vaporizers in their pockets.

In the news I have seen many videos in which people have been burned because of vaporizers. Usually people carry their vaporizers in their pockets like how they used to carry their cigarettes. Out of nowhere it has caused explosions which has led people to have serious burns. Personally, I do not smoke and i just see it as a waste of money. In the end, it is unhealthy for our health.

yes, i think both kinds of cigarettes are not good for anyone's health. personally, i am a non-smoker. from my perspective, i think e-cigarettes are less harmful to me when i have to be the second-hand smoker. in some events in my country, when they smoked the regular cigarettes in a room, i just wanted to die because of the horrible smoke. however, e-cigarettes do not produce that much horrible smell of the smoke. therefore, i prefer people to smoke with e-cigarettes if they have to. but the best thing to do is to quit smoking.
