But Dr Murthy warned that nicotine exposure is harmful to the developing brain and said that teachers, parents and health officials should discourage under 25s from taking up the habit Buy Cheap Cigarettes Online.
"Most e-cigarettes contain nicotine, which can cause addiction and can harm the developing adolescent brain," said Dr Murthy.

"Health care providers, parents, teachers, and other caregivers should advise youth about the dangers of nicotine and discourage tobacco use in any form, including e-cigarettes."
Dr Murthy said the negative health effects and potentially harmful doses of heated chemicals in e-cigarette liquids are not completely understood.

Professor Kevin Fenton, national director of health and wellbeing at Public Health England said:
"We recognise the concern about youth uptake of e-cigarettes in the US where establishing regulations, especially on marketing has been difficult. The position in the UK is very different. We have comprehensive regulations in place including a ban on selling e-cigarettes to under-18s and tough restrictions on advertising, as well as minimum standards for safety, maximum nicotine levels and health warnings on packs.
"Our review of the evidence found e-cigarette use carries a fraction of the risk of smoking, a conclusion reiterated by the Royal College of Physicians earlier this year. No new evidence has been published to contradict this, however we are closely monitoring any emerging evidence ."
