Abstract

Over the past decade the use of electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) or so-called vaping has become increasingly popular in many parts of the world. The e-cigarette is a battery-operated device which releases vapours of flavoured nicotine instead of tobacco smoke. The e-cigarette is a way to consume nicotine which gives the ‘high’ without the consumption of tar and other cancerous chemicals normally present in conventional tobacco cigarettes.
