The answer to this question is Yes and that is scientifically backed up however there is still some concern that although significantly better there may be some carcinogens when PG and VG are heated . Breathing in any smoke, tar, thousands of chemicals found in tobacco cigarettes is scientifically proven to be harmful. The smoke and carcinogens found in tobacco cigarettes were of such concern that they have been thoroughly tested and proven deadly.
In regards to e-cigarettes, there are many claims about e-cigarettes but the fact of the matter is that the government does not feel that e-cigarettes are of such a great concern that they must be tested and analyzed for safety or that they have been tested to be proven safe. I am confident that if such testing were done and e-cigarettes were found to be in fact more dangerous, that the government would release those findings to the public immediately just as they have done with various tobacco products.
