The UK’s Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) said on Friday it would publish the findings of a new study on the health risks posed by e-cigarette use.

It will also release a new guide to the public health impact of the products.

The UK is among countries that have been lobbying for greater regulation on e-cig use, which has exploded in popularity in recent years.

E-cigarette sales rose by 10% in the first quarter of 2018 compared to the same period last year.

The number of people who use e-cigs rose by over 500% last year to more than 7.3 million.

HSCIC, which publishes data on the use of electronic cigarettes, said it was analysing the findings to identify the most common types of e-liquids and e-liquid ingredients in e-picks.

It said its research showed that e-colas were linked to a number of health conditions including asthma, respiratory infections, lung cancer, heart disease and COPD, which are all linked to smoking.

It was also found to be linked to higher levels of stomach, kidney and blood cancers.

In April, the UK Tobacco Products Regulatory Agency (UKTRA) published a consultation paper into the health effects of electronic cigarette use.

The paper also warned that e‑cigarettes could lead to a range of adverse health effects including increased risk of stroke, heart attacks and premature death.
