For those who don’t know what an e-cigarette is, it isn’t more than an electronic nicotine delivery system, a handled device that is often used by regular tobacco cigars consumers with the main goal of reducing the smoking habit or nulling it at all.
Also known as e-cigs, vaporizers or vapes, they were introduced to the market in 2004 and his global usage has risen up a lot since then.

“Australia has to be a country open to any healthy alternative options to the many problems that products may cause on the human body, one of the most harmful of them all, is ironically the most consumed,” consulted health experts say.

The Point of the Proposal
A constant petition that has been made not only by doctors but by many other associations is regarding the smoking rate of real cigarettes, which reports have made clear that have fallen in an immense scale in the friendly e-cigarettes countries.
The real part of the problem is that a number of smokers that are truly willing to quit the habit is small. This may be the solution to a problem that affects millions around the globe, one that doesn’t only affect the consumers’ health but also the ones who are near.
