Electronic cigarette doesn't make smoke and characteristic tobacco smell. Electronic smoke is a fume with admixtures of nicotine that forms in integrated vaporizer. But lamp imitates flashes during inhaling.
This device can be also smoked in public places. Scientists from School of Public Health by Boston University of USA have made a research with participation of 222 of people who have acquired electronic cigarettes. 30 per cent of interrogated persons have quit smoking during six months. Approximately 67 per cents of respondents have answered that they have reduced quantity of real cigarettes.
According to opinion of this research initiators such results confirm effectiveness of tobacco substitute for those who want to quit smoking. However not all scientists are so optimistic disposed and express doubts relating to harmlessness of electronic cigarettes. Too little time has passed to determine how does the fume that consumer inhales influence on organism.
