Those who like to get their nicotine fix electronically will be disappointed to hear that a U.S. Food and Drug Administration report earlier this week found that electronic cigarettes, or "e-cigarettes," contain carcinogens and toxic chemicals such as diethylene glycol, an ingredient used in antifreeze.
The draw of e-cigarettes is supposed to be their ability to let smokers regulate their nicotine intake (nicotine is sold in disposable cartridges containing differing amounts) while producing water vapor, as opposed to secondhand smoke. The smoker inhales doses of nicotine vaporized with the help of a solvent such as propylene glycol. E-cigarettes, which were all the rage at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, are battery-operated plastic tubes made to look like cigarettes (or in some cases cigars and pipes).
