The Health Ministry has recommended a temporary halt to shisha and electronic cigarette smoking until the findings on the risks are announced. It is also in discussions with various agencies and parties to get their views on the effects these methods of smoking have on health.

In recent years, vaping has become a trend not only in smokers but also among non-smokers in Malaysia. They tend to see vaping as a safe alternative to cigarette smoking.

An electronic cigarette (e-cig or e-cigarette), personal vaporizer (PV) or electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) are battery-powered vaporizer that simulates the feeling of smoking, but without the tobacco combustion.
