E-cigarettes (e-cigarettes, also known as electronic nicotine delivery systems, electronic non-nicotine delivery systems, or ‘ENDS’) are battery operated devices that heat a liquid (called ‘e-liquid or ‘e-juice’) to produce a vapour that users inhale.  

On 25 March 2015, the CEO of NHMRC issued a statement on electronic cigarettes, to inform the Australian community about the current status of the evidence about the potential risks and benefits of electronic cigarettes.
