Take the example of Germany. Germans traditionally love to smoke, but they like to die not so much. Surely, this explains the fact that for more than 2 million people in the country switched to electronic cigarettes. Many consider them a healthy alternative to conventional tobacco products. But some experts have warned us that the electronic cigarettes and harmful to the human body, just no one has studied the long-term effects of prolonged use. No one can honestly say how risky to use them until they made a full-scale investigation.
Fortunately, in the case of electronic cigarettes burning process is not used. In comparison, after dozens of different studies, we can say with precision what the electronic cigarettes. The main ingredient here is propylene glycol. This substance is used in a variety of household products, including medicines, inhalers, cosmetics, food, water (for sterilization), and air conditioners — to create an artificial smoke.
Most electronic cigarettes also contain nicotine. Nicotine is, of course, it is hard for the body (his influence can be compared, for example, caffeine), but its use is separate is much safer than inhaling tobacco smoke. In a study by summarizing the existing analysis of electronic cigarette, Professor Siegel came to the following conclusion: None of the more than 10,000 chemical substances in tobacco smoke, including 40 known carcinogens, was found in a pair, a selectable electronic cigarettes — at least in any significant quantity. They [electronic cigarettes] undoubtedly safer tobacco.
The number of scientific data on the impact on health of the electronic cigarette is very limited. There is some evidence that they can affect the function of the lungs. Preliminary results presented in September 2012 at the annual congress of the European Respiratory Society in Vienna showed that “smoking” or electronic cigarette for 10 minutes resulted in increased airway resistance — and it prevents the transport of air in the lungs and out of them.
True, the study was based on a very small sample of people — only 32 volunteers. Eight had never smoked, 24 were smokers, of whom 11 had normal lung function, and 13 suffered from either chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or asthma. Electronic cigarettes — devices that are used by people instead of cigarettes. The effect of electronic cigarettes is that they produce steam, which may contain nicotine. Electronic cigarettes work by a small battery. The design of the electronic cigarette is an evaporator (steam generator), often called atomiser within which is nichrome spiral that turns the liquid contained within the dense vapor, resembling the appearance of smoke.
