Electronic cigarettes: pros and cons

August 2, 2017

A brief literature overview on electronic cigarettes (ES) and associated health risks is provided. Possibility of nicotine dependence relapse
with a risk of cardiovascular and other complications especially
in older people who have given up smoking is pointed out. For people
with nicotine dependence combined with chronic respiratory diseases,
a change from tobacco cigarettes to ES can make sense, bearing in mind
the final goal of complete smoking cessation.
