E-cigarettes addiction

The consumption of e-cigarettes has increased among youngsters in Pakistan. According to a survey, more than 10 per cent of the population is addicted to e-cigarettes that come in different flavours. Youngsters use them as an alternative to conventional smoking in the belief that it has low health implications. However, e-cigarettes are injurious to health as they can cause lung cancer, brain tumour, weak immune system and chronic bronchitis. The authorities must control the illegal sale of e-cigarettes, and suspend the licence of those who violate such orders.
