New American research has found that smoking e-cigarettes could cause the same damage to the arteries and blood vessels as smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes.

Carried out by researchers at Boston University School of Medicine, the new study looked at more than 400 men and women aged 21 to 45, who were free of heart disease and any heart disease risk factors.
