UK inquiry into death of electronic cigarette user
Jonathan Foulds, PhD posted:
This links to BBC coverage of the inquiry into the death of a man in Gateshead, UK, who had been a user of electronic cigarettes. The inquirey recorded an "open verdict". Given that the man had previously smoked regular cigarettes for many years it is impossible to say what caused his illness. As e-cigs become more popular I think we are going to see more of these cases....not necessarily implying a causal effect. The more people use a product, the more people are going to get sick and die while using, just by chance.

I personally think that it is way too early to even speculate on this. And what is really upsetting is that the doctor wants to blame it on the chemicals in the e-cigarette. Most e-cigarette brands disclose the ingredients. Take a look at this website and you will see what's in the smoke juice. In general it is water, nicotine, propylene glycol and/or vegetable glycerin, and ingredients for flavor. Source:

On the other hand we know that tobacco cigarettes contain thousands of carcinogens!
