About Electronic Cigarettes
Electronic cigarettes are battery-powered vaporizers that simulate the feeling of smoking, but without tobacco. Their use is commonly called "vaping". Instead of cigarette smoke, the user inhales an aerosol, commonly called vapor, typically released by a heating element that atomizes a liquid solution known as e-liquid. Use of e-cigarettes greatly increased over the few years to 2014, particularly among young people and women in some countries. But in both the US and UK the growth in usage seemed to have slowed in 2015.
