But now, a new study says despite claims of unknown effects of e-cigs, they are at least better for you than the real thing.
The study was done by Queen Mary University of London and published in the journal Addiction. It says e-cigs cut tobacco-related deaths. The researchers came to this conclusion after looking over more than 80 previous studies. (Via HealthDay)
