Researchers develop nicotine-free, disposable e-cigarette

Researchers have developed a new electronic cigarette which they claim has none of the nicotine found in many existing e-cigarettes. It is being launched under the brand 5 Colors. According to the manufacturers, they meet a growing demand for a socially-acceptable way to enjoy a cigarette, the Daily Express reported. Produced in a range of colours and fruit flavours - including apple, blueberry, grape, peach and strawberry - they contain no smoke, nicotine, tobacco or tar. With conventional smoking now banned in public spaces, the 5 Colors electronic cigarettes have the attraction of being legal for indoor use, saving users the trouble of standing in the cold and rain outside pubs, clubs, restaurants and workplaces.

A single 5 Colors electronic cigarette costs £6.99 (£24.95 for a pack of five) and, according to the manufacturers , provides the same number of puffs - around 300 - as a traditional pack of 20 regular cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes differ because they do not burn any organic matter. Instead, they use a batterypowered element to heat a nontoxic liquid which creates a vapour rather than a smoke - giving rise to a new trend called "vaping" . Since there are no toxins in them, electronic cigarettes have no known health risks. The UK Electronic Cigarette Consumer Association said ecigarettes - which unlike electronic cigarettes such as 5 Colors do contain nicotine - have been shown to be safer than some quit-smoking drugs and there has not been a single incident of death or disease associated with their use.
