The popularity of E-cigarette, a device powered by battery that allows users to inhale nicotine-causing addiction, raises concerns among policymakers around the world who consider it as a new door addictive to the young.

Although vape exposes consumers to lower levels of toxins than smoking, the WHO said the device still provides health risks to consumers.

“Although the specific level of risk associated with the electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) has not been consistently estimated, ENDS is definitely dangerous and should be subject to monitoring,” the WHO said in a new report on the global smoking outbreak.

There is also evidence that is not strongly supporting its claims of efficacy in helping smokers who try to quit smoking.

“In most easily accessible countries, the majority of E-cigarette users continue to use the material and cigarettes simultaneously, which have no impact on the risks and health effects,” the report said.
