RIVM has recently published a partial English translation of a 2014 report (RIVM report 2014-0143) describing the most important results of its analysis of the health risks associated with e-cigarette use compared with traditional tobacco smoking. It was affirmed that e‑cigarettes are less harmful than tobacco cigarettes, although it was noted that their use results in much higher exposures to glycerol and propylene glycol (as carrier liquids).
