    Nicotine and toxicant yield ratings of e-cig brands in New Zealand March 2015

    "Summary

    Electronic cigarettes (e-cigs) contain nicotine but not toxins, and so they do not kill smokers. We checked out 14 brands sold in New Zealand. We found toxic aldehydes had an average concentration of under 0.5% of that found in Marlboro cigarette smoke. Nicotine concentration was one-half to two-thirds that in a Marlboro. E-cigs are comparatively safe to switch to."

    True, but you can read the Abstract: https://www.nzma.org.nz/journal/read...-mar-2015/6483

    It is a bit of dinky little study. But every little bit helps.

    They also made a Competing Interests Disclosure:

    Competing Interests

    Agencies which sold EasyPuff, Elusion, Greensmoke, and KiwiCig contributed to expenses of testing, as had Ruyan for 2008 samples. These contributions did not influence the design or conclusions of this study.
    Thankfully, no big tobacco brands. I think?
