E-Cigarettes: Can This Technology Help You Quit?

Electronic cigarettes have become a popular replacement for traditional cigarettes and are helping many “quit” smoking (at least traditionally).  However, because they are relatively new to the market, research is still being compiled on whether or not they are safer than regular cigarettes, and if they are even effectively helping people quit.  Currently in Canada, e-cigarettes are not government approved and have not been recognized as safe by Health Canada.  It is said the sale of e-cigarettes will outweigh the sale of normal cigarettes by the end of the decade.  The following article from The Toronto Star discusses the popularity of e-cigarettes and the arguments from supporters and those who aren’t so sure.  What’s your opinion?
