NEW YORK, June 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- They're supposed to be better than smoking real cigarettes. At least that's what consumers are told. But, is that really the case? Electronic cigarette "e-cigarette" lawsuits are popping up everywhere lately and there's no telling what kind of information may come out about the possible detrimental side effects of using these products.

It was recently revealed by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) that two popular brands of e-cigarettes contained carcinogens and other dangerous substances including a highly-toxic chemical used to make antifreeze. Despite this some companies market e-cigarettes as being less harmful than tradition cigarettes, a claim that could be misleading.

Because e-cigarettes have yet to be fully evaluated by the FDA there is no way of knowing how much nicotine or chemicals a user is taking in.  Limited testing has raised some red flags regarding the battery-operated devices.

"The scary thing about some of the e-cigarettes out there today is that people can be made to believe that smoking them is completely safe and without negative side effects," said James Sheridan of the Pegasus Servicing department. "In reality, there needs to be a great deal more research into these devices to determine whether they can do any damage to an individual."
