Before jumping into the e cigarette bandwagon, you might want to know how it can be of benefit to you. There has been a lot of stir about this popular product and the feedback has been mostly positive. “The e cigarette is an excellent alternative”, they say, but is it really as revolutionary a product as the consumers claim? What are its benefits, if any? If you are a smoker, then read on.
The e cigarette’s purpose is simple. It offers smokers an alternative to their potentially destructive habit. As we all know by now, there are many devastating side effects to smoking, and it could potentially end your life if you continue to use it. Some of the immediate side effects include a change in your taste buds, loss of appetite, and pale, clammy skin. Some of the long-term effects include more severe ailments, such as heart disease, stroke, lung cancer, and cancer of your other organs.
The e cigarette gives smokers who desire to quit the opportunity to “indulge” in their habit without all of the obvious side effects. Because the e cigarette mimics the act of smoking, smokers can enjoy the hand-to-mouth action that they are so accustomed to, which is just one of the psychological and physical addictions to cigarette smoking.
The liquid solution in the cartridge used by the device can contain various levels of nicotine. The usual levels range from high, medium, low, and no nicotine, but the actual strengths differ with every manufacturer. Although nicotine itself is what makes smokers addicted to tobacco cigarettes in the first place, the benefit of the e cigarette is that the liqud solution doesn’t contain a ton of additives that later turn into toxic chemicals and cancer-causing agents.
An FDA study revealed that there are minuscule traces of diethylene glycol and nitrosamines found in certain cartridges they tested, and all of those same chemicals are also found in cigarettes. When comparing the ingredients in the vapor, however, the smoke in cigarettes is plenty times worse. The e cigarette is still the safer and healthier smoking alternative.
Since the device is fairly new, not enough research has been conducted on it, but many health professionals agree that as long as the nicotine is the same kind of nicotine that is used in the tobacco cigarette, then users should be safe. After all, it’s not the nicotine itself that is extremely dangerous, it is the chemicals, such as tar, ammonia, formaldehyde, and thousands of others, that make the tobacco cigarette so dangerous.
The U.S. surgeon general issued a blistering attack saying because of the danger they should be kept away from teens. Nicotine is addicting getting hooked on the electronic form may lead to the use of cigarettes.
