Note: I don't want anybody around me that uses cigarettes at all. But just how safe are electronic cigarettes. Manufactures of them claim they are a safe alternative to cigarettes. From what I have read there is nicotine and traces of toxic chemicals including carcinogens. They use a battery with an atomizer to heat the liquid up, don't sound safe to me and who knows what other chemicals that are in them.

there are chemicals in almost everything we consume. our food is loaded with things not good for us, unless you can afford to buy organic. as far as e-cigs from what I have researched they are safe, however there are not enough test to confirm. I treat mine like regular cig and go out side and keep away from others. the good news is I have cut my weekly cost from $35 a week on cigarettes to $6 a week on e-cigs. I feel better, breath better and have more energy.   And I don't stink anymore.

I figure about 5 years down the road after a new study they will tell us that they are highly toxic and just as bad if not worse than actually smoking. I guess we'll see. 

Nicotine in the electronic cigarette is an alkaloid toxin that has been used as an insecticide.

It can produce undesirable side effects in the body:

That said if people want to inhale the stuff and they aren't crashing their cars into me and are a respectful distance from others; then it's none of my business.
