Electronic or Electrocutive Cigarettes?

Whether you burn a cigarette with match stick or with charge the result is obviously the same.

Electronic Cigarette or simply abbreviated as E-Cigarette/smoke/pipe/cigar/liquid was developed by Ruyan America Co. headed by Mr. Hon Lik in 2004. It was then marketed by Ruyan Group Holdings Ltd in China. Without any solid documentation approval by any international Health Organization or WHO it is still being used and widely available online.

Amazon is selling this product with the brand named Gamucci with a price tag of $60.

The E-Cig is made up of 3 main components, a battery, an vapourizer, and a nicotine cartridge. It is self extinguished. When you breathe in the vapourizer turns a small amount of liquid nicotine into vapour nicotine which is delivered through mouth.

There are some speculations that E-Cig is less harmful as compared to traditional one. However recent laboratory experiments by US Food and Drug Association (FDA) has announced that they have found traces of carcinogens and diethylene glycol (toxic anti-freeze agent). Highly addictive flavors like chocolate and mint contain nicotine which may appeal to young people.

According to FDA Health care professionals and consumers may report the serious side effects or product quality control online, mail or tele contacts listed on previous links.

My humble question to FDA is that 'If you are much concerned about the Health of other people then why not E-cig can be banned world wide by you or WHO'?
