E-cigarettes are electronic nicotine delivery systems that produce a heated vapor that is inhaled like smoke. The e-cigarettes are heated by a battery in the device. Unfortunately, e-cigarette batteries can overheat and explode, which have caused serious injuries. In addition to the risk posed by fire and explosions, the devices also produce toxins that are inhaled in the form of vapor. These toxins are links to numerous side-effects, including severe lung disease.
