In a development that would reduce serious potential health problems, including cancer, caused by use of e-cigarettes, the Karnataka government has banned electronic cigarettes in the state with immediate effect from Wednesday.  Health Minister UT Khader said that the decision has been taken on the recommendation of the committee on cancer prevention. He said e-cigarettes mimic the size and shape of cigarettes and contain a cartridge containing liquid, which includes nicotine (up to 36 mg/ML) among other chemicals (usually propylene glycol or glycerol).
