Do E Cigarettes Affect Indoor Air Quality?

Tobacco cigarettes are known for their pungent smell, thick clouds of smoke and the lingering odour they leave behind. E cigarettes have none of these negative associations, and the vapour that is released is minimal and doesn’t hold much of an odour. Even the varying flavours of e cig cartridges don’t make much difference, and at most you may notice a slightly sweet smell.

E liquid is integral to vaping, and without this flavoured juice the whole experience wouldn’t be possible. The minute vaping comes up in conversation or you whip out your e cigarette, people invariably ask what flavour e liquid you are using.

The History Of Electronic Cigarettes

The idea of an e cigarette was actually first conceived way back in 1963 by a man called Herbert A. Gilbert. He even registered a patent for his idea which was based on "a smokeless non-tobacco cigarette". A number of companies showed interest in the idea and expressed their desire to manufacture the device, but for reasons unknown the device was never commercially produced and was unheard of after 1967.
