The truth about electronic cigarettes

Electronic cigarettes are battery-operated devices that deliver nicotine by means of an aerosol, aka vaping.  They are promoted as a means of weaning people away from cigarette smoking, but, as the chart above shows, they do no such thing.

Cigarette smoking was declining long before vaping was introduced.  Electronic cigarettes are not different from old-fashioned cigarettes.
