Vapor from an electronic cigarette simulates tobacco smoke, but the process of burning tobacco does not occur. The aerosol is made-up of liquid sub-micron particles of condensed vapor, which mostly consist of propylene glycol , glycerol , water, flavorings , nicotine , and other chemicals. The various chemicals in the aerosol give rise to many issues concerning the safety of electronic cigarettes that have been much discussed.

Media Violence Research
The study of violence in mass media analyzes the degree of correlation between themes of violence in media sources (particularly violence in video games , television and films) with real-world aggression and violence over time. Many social scientists support the correlation.

Various media/genres, including dime novels , comic books , jazz , rock and roll , role playing /computer games , television, films, internet (by computer or cell phone) and many others have attracted speculation that consumers of such media may become more aggressive, rebellious or immoral
