The fight against the tobacco industry has come a long way, states like Illinois have passed laws prohibiting smoking in the work place and in public places. But still there are products like e-cigarettes that are taking over the smoking industry, becoming the fastest selling products with sales of up to $1.7 billion.

A recent study found that e-cigarette vapor could contain cancer-causing formaldehyde at levels up to 15 times higher than regular cigarettes. When these electronic cigarettes are operated at high voltages, they can produce vapor with large amounts of these chemical compounds. Formaldehyde is a human carcinogen; it’s a colorless, gas, commonly used in glues and as embalming fluid.
