Electronic cigarettes are becoming more and more popular, and part of the analysis predicts that the electronic cigarette market may exceed traditional cigarettes within 10 years. Electronic smoke is the use of atomizer to convert liquid nicotine into steam, rather than burning tobacco.
England's chief medical officer (CMO) Davies (Sally Davies) said in a statement: "we do not know the electronic cigarette harm to adults, not to mention the child; but we do know is that the electronic cigarette is not zero risk."
Davies said, electronic cigarettes will produce toxic chemicals, and each product liquid nicotine concentration is also different, may cause extreme harm to the health of young people".
The global electronic cigarette market was estimated at more than $2 billion last year, according to Euromonitor, a market research consultancy.
