Description

In a few short years electronic cigarettes have grown into a multi-billion dollar business, yet conflicting information abounds about the efficacy and safety.

  • Understand how the different parts of an e-cigarette impact it's use and safety.
  • Explain the pros and cons of using e-cigarettes as a cessation device vs the use of FDA approved medications.
