Electronic Cigarettes: What's The Bottom Line?

  • E-cigarettes have the potential to benefit adult smokers who are not pregnant if used as a complete substitute for regular cigarettes and other smoked tobacco products.

  • E-cigarettes are not safe for youth, young adults, pregnant women, or adults who do not currently use tobacco products.

  • While e-cigarettes have the potential to benefit some people and harm others, scientists still have a lot to learn about whether e-cigarettes are effective for quitting smoking.

  • If you’ve never smoked or used other tobacco products or e-cigarettes, don’t start.

  • Additional research can help understand long-term health effects.
