E-Cigarettes: Perspectives, Regulation and Health Effects


René Ebersbach (Editor)

Series: Smoking and Tobacco Use
BISAC: MED078000

E-Cigarettes: Perspectives, Regulation and Health Effects reviews the current literature relevant to college students and e-cigarette use, with an emphasis on the perceived risks and benefits of use, and discusses how this information may be applied to future interventions in this population.

E-cigarettes are battery-operated devices, vape pens, e-hookah, e-cigars, e-pipes, or other electronic nicotine delivery systems. They are designed to heat a liquid solution that emulates smoking using a smoke-free technique.

Ongoing studies of nicotine salts and by-products such as N-nitrosonornicotine and nicotyrine and their physiological effects are also reviewed.
