Warning: Did You Know Most e-Cigarettes Get Made in China? (Video)

It’s a surprising and worrying fact that e-Cigarettes were invented in China.

About 90% of the world’s e-cigarettes get made in the south of the country in  Shenzhen.

Westerners may consider them a healthier alternative to smoking regular cigarettes, but this Chinese industry is poorly regulated, like many others.

Heavy metals and other toxins have been found in some products, and some that plug into USB ports even carry malware.

This video shows Chinese devices being made cheaply and quickly for a market estimated to be worth $3 billion in the United States alone.
