I like Natural News

but that article is pure garbage and proves exactly how much they know about the eCig industry: Nothing. The free market is doing a WONDERFUL job of providing a MYRIAD of eLiquid (nicotine) varieties. Around me, there are at least three shops that sell 100% certified organic eLiquid with no chemicals. Even the few vaporized carcinogens that chemical-laden eLiquid puts into people's lugs pales in comparison to the amount that cigarettes do. To call it "trading one bad habit for another" and scaring people away from a wonderful alternative to tobacco with propaganda is ridiculous. Me and at least 10 of my friends have quit smoking because of eCigarettes, and the effects don't lie. You can breathe again, you stop coughing crud up in the morning, etc. Whoever wrote that article has clearly never been a smoker and has clearly never used the product they're lambasting.

I'm not gonna get up on a soapbox here and tell people that nicotine isn't bad for you; it is. It's a stimulant, and like all stimulants, it's not the best thing you can do for your heart. But simply consuming nicotine without the smoke or carcinogens is about as bad for your heart as drinking a few too many cups of coffee a day, as most Americans do. Same net effect.
