Health authorities are worried about the widely believed misconception regarding e-cigarettes. A large number of people think that e-cigarettes are as dangerous as ordinary cigarettes.
Latest report from Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) shows that use of e-cigarettes has increased. The numbers of vapers have reached 2.6 million only in Britain.
In 2014, number of electronic cigarettes smokers were around 2.1 million. In only five months, the figures have climbed up to 2.6 million. Most of new e-cigarette smokers are ex-smokers.
