Electronic Cigarettes, Will it Catch On or Stay a Fad?

Did you see the crazy episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, when a dinner party guest was smoking an electronic cigarette? Since then, electronic cigarettes have become a hot topic with bloggers and the FDA. So what is the appeal and benefit of electronic cigarettes?

Currently the FDA is appealing the initial ruling by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon. The judge’s decision gives the FDA no authority to regulate or stop electronic-cigarette makers Smoking Everywhere Inc. and NJoy from entering the country.

The FDA’s fight is to ensure these electronic cigarette companies, with products that contain tobacco, are marketing their products correctly and not as a safer alternative to traditional tobacco.

ECigarette is the only alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes that addresses your habit of having something in your hand and in your mouth without containing tobacco or nicotine.

From our research it seems that most electronic cigarettes are being marketed as a safer alternative even though some still contain nicotine. These electronic cigarette websites still have this warning label in small print at the bottom of the webpage:

Warning: Nicotine is highly addictive. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat,  cure, or mitigate any 
disease or condition. You must be over the age of 18 to buy and/or use this product with a nicotine option. If 
you have a demonstrated allergy or sensitivity o nicotine or any combination of inhalants, if you are pregnant or 
breast feeding, or if you have heart disease, diabetes, high bold pressure, asthma, consult your physician 
before using this product.

Although, these electronic cigarettes do eliminate the dangers of second-hand smoke so you can smoke around others without causing ill effects.

Electronic cigarettes emit a virtually odorless vapor that simulates actual smoke, but dissipates quickly in the air. This enables smokers to smoke these electronic cigarettes in places where regular cigarettes are prohibited. One website even advertised that you can smoke these cigarettes in bed and not bother your partner.

Actress, Katherine Heigl, recently appeared on David Letterman and smoked an electronic cigarette raving about the benefits. Watch the video here.

Do you think this electronic cigarette fad will catch on or fizzle out?
