Be careful when picking your vape liquid, some may be toxic.

When it comes to e-cigarette safety, flavourings added to the liquid nicotine burned in the devices may influence how much the fumes lead to health problems, a recent study suggests.

They also looked at how much these chemicals appeared in tobacco smoke and in smoke-free air.
