Makers of Electronic Cigarette call it a safe, healthy alternative

	BOSTON -- Makers of a new product say it can give smokers satisfaction without the health risk.</p>
<p>
	The &quot;E-Cig&quot;, or Electronic Cigarette, is claimed to be safe because there is no tobacco, tar, or smoke. The pen-sized cigarette is made of plastic and metal and is battery charged. The tiny white cartridges contain water, propylene glycol, nicotine, and a tobacco flavor, and supply enough nicotine for up to two packs of cigarettes.</p>
<p>
	&quot;There is no second hand smoke, there is no tobacco in this product as far as I know,&quot; says Jonathan Winickoff, MD, Massachusetts General Hospital.</p>
<p>
	7NEWS put the new product to the test by giving smokers a chance to try the E-Cig for a week.</p>
<p>
	&quot;You actually inhale something and you get nicotine from it so its definitely a big help, I&#39;d say,&quot; remarked Joe Callahan, who has been a smoker for 10 years.</p>
<p>
	&quot;I found it awkward especially like in public and people are like &quot;what&#39;s that?&quot; and I was constantly explaining but you know,&quot; said Erica Cassesso, an on and off smoker of 11 years.</p>
<p>
	&quot;It&#39;s a little difficult to inhale, it takes a lot of force,&quot; said Angela Harrar, a decade long smoker, &quot;which might be one of the reasons why I didn&#39;t take to it as much as I had hoped.&quot;</p>
<p>
	None of the testers said they were able to extinguish their cigarettes completely, but they did say it helped them cut down by substituting the E-Cig for real ones. The testers also said they liked how they could get a nicotine fix inside public places.</p>
<p>
	The E-Cig is sold online for about $99 dollars.</p>
