Most people know the dangers of normal cigarettes, but you may not know
the harmful effects that E-Cigarettes may cause. Many people, especially
young people, use E-Cigarettes without understanding the true danger of
Electronic cigarettes, also known as E-Cigarettes, are electronic devices
that give the user the sensation of smoking without the existence of tobacco.
These battery powered devices work by the user inhaling a flavored aerosol.
There are many other harmful chemicals that vary in the making of E-Cigarettes.
This is due to lose regulations on the production of these devices, but
the FDA conducted a study that showed that electronic cigarettes “possessed
detectable levels of cancer causing chemicals.” Similarl to traditional
cigarettes, nicotine is a known chemical in the making of many electronic
cigarettes. The chemicals of these E-Cigarettes are harmful, but they
aren’t the only things that are dangerous about them.
A recent incident involving E-Cigarettes shows the dangers in the E-Cigarette
devices themselves. A woman in Florida claimed to have been using an electronic
cigarette in her car when it suddenly exploded, causing burns to her face,
torso, and hand, the loss of teeth, and her car erupted in flames as a
result of the explosion of the device. There have been many more reported
injuries due to exploding E-Cigarettes. The selling of these faulty electronic
cigarettes may lead to legal liability for the company where you could
receive compensation for your injuries caused by it and time missed from
work due to injuries.
