E-Cigarettes: A Hazy Hazard

Summary: Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes, e-cigs) are battery-powered devices that deliver vaporized nicotine and other substances such as flavorings to users without smoke or combustion. They are commonly marketed as healthier alternatives to smoking and as smoking-cessation tools. A common misperception is that e-cigarettes only release water vapor. In reality, these devices release nicotine and other chemicals in a vapor form that can expose both the user and those in the immediate vicinity to the contaminants. While the health risks of using e-cigarettes are far lower than smoking regular cigarettes, many toxic compounds are still present.

What is the BOK?

The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
