E-cigs, though reportedly safer than actual cigarettes, are still harmful to the expectant mom especially if she uses it herself. Yikes! Then again, you're right. I guess it's better and safer to use e-cigs if you've got pregnant women and kids at home.

Let's see which is the lesser evil. I'm sharing this piece from an article about e-cigs at http://www.primehealthchannel.com/el...e-effects.html


It is a fact that no electronic cigarette company is endorsed by any health organization. This is the reason why there has been an effective Electronic Cigarette ban in a number of countries like Canada. While Electronic Cigarettes are less dangerous compared to real cigarettes, they are still a threat to smokers. For an effective removal of smoking habit, it is best to give up smoking completely. It is best not to try to stop smoking with Electronic Cigarettes.

Hmm...

@Fanny - Thanks for that info. Electronic cigarettes are the lesser evil. My hubby uses one and I've tried it a few times. The different flavors are a whole lotta fun! Then again it is still best to be used in moderation no matter how lesser of an evil it may be.

Perhaps e-cigs are very much helpful if a person is on a "withdrawal phase".

Yikes, it's equally harmful. But I second Abana, if it's being used as an aid during the withdrawal phase then I'd go for one.

It's still not a good idea for a pregnant mum to be puffing an e-cig. Disgusting IMHO! Imagine risking your baby's life...
