Although research has yet to identify specific long-term health risks, scientists are coming to the same conclusion—e-cig use is a far safer alternative than smoking.  Despite the evidence, public perception of e-cig safety has declined, while demands for stricter regulation and bans have gradually intensified. That the public’s perception of vaping diverts so radically from scientific evidence leads us to believe this may be an intended result of an organized disinformation campaign.
