The industry is facing a crisis of credibility as its products have been linked to a number of deadly illnesses, including a new coronavirus outbreak in Australia and the deadly rise in deaths linked to the coronaviral coronaviruses.
The number of e-cigarette sales in Australia is estimated to have reached nearly $10 billion last year, with more than half of that coming from Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.
More than 40 per cent of the e-cig sales are coming from China, followed by the United States, India, and Australia, with a quarter of sales coming from other emerging markets such as South Africa and Brazil.
The emergence of the electronic cigarette, which is widely seen as safer than traditional cigarettes, has brought concerns about its impact on public health.
The e-cigs, which emit less nicotine, can be inhaled or swallowed and can be used by children, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.
There are also concerns about their impact on children, with some studies finding e-vapor use to be harmful to their developing brains.
However, the World Health Organization has found no evidence to suggest that e-Cigarettes are any more harmful than conventional cigarettes to children or adolescents.
Some health experts have also raised concerns about the use of e,vaporizers in the workplace, with the World Economic Forum (WEF) warning that e cigs could be “harmful to workers and their physical and mental health”.
The use of electronic cigarettes is not new, with traditional cigarettes and other tobacco products being sold for decades, but they have grown in popularity over the past few years.
The WHO has also issued a warning that the new e-liquid is potentially dangerous for users, noting that it could be contaminated with carcinogens.
According to the WEF, more than one million Australians have died from tobacco-related illnesses, with many more cases linked to other health problems, including lung cancer.
The Australian Government has also warned that the introduction of e cigarettes is causing the spread of the coronas pandemic, which has claimed the lives of more than 8,000 people.
The Government has taken several steps to help consumers avoid the risks of using e-liquids, including banning e-Liquids in pubs, restaurants, shopping malls, and cinemas.
The State Government has said it will continue to monitor e-juices and their effects on health.
A number of states have also passed laws banning e cig use, including Queensland, South Australia, and Western Australia.
However the introduction and sale of e cig products in Australia has remained controversial, with health groups and many consumer groups calling for the ban to be lifted.
The Royal Australian College of Physicians has previously warned that e cigarette use could be linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, respiratory problems, and premature death.
“There is no evidence that e cigarettes are safe,” a spokesperson for the College said.
“Our expert committee has been looking into the safety of e cigarette products and has not found any evidence that they cause adverse effects to users or bystanders.”
