Smoking is the number one killer of men all over the world. Even those who are non-smokers but stay beside a smoker is also at a higher risk and gets killed faster than the smoker itself.
Thus all over the world, many government agencies and organizations have constantly been promoting to avoid smoking and develop a smoke free community.
However, the nicotine that is found in cigarette sticks has an addictive effect since using this makes your brain feel good and makes you not want to stop anymore. Therefore once you start smoking, you just can’t stop.
But with the advent of new technology called electronic cigarette, people who want to plan to stop smoking could use this as a starter of their course.
Both the electronic cigarette and tobacco cigarette have nicotine in them but the only benefit of the electronic cigarette over the usual cigarette stick is that it does not emit a harmful smoke.
It is actually the smoke of a cigarette stick that harms the body of a person so much because the smoke itself contains 300 harmful chemicals that may even cause cancer of the lungs. It is therefore important that one must start to avoid using tobacco cigarette as much as possible.
What is electronic cigarette?
Electronic cigarette looks like the natural cigarette but instead of using natural smoke (or fire) to start it up, it uses heat from electricity to create a smoke effect and to be able to inhale the nicotine that is found in it. Inside the electronic cigarette is a vial of liquid that contains nicotine.
When heat is applied, the liquid nicotine is vaporize and inhaled by the body. Unlike the normal cigarette stick, there are no other harmful chemicals that are found in the nicotine solution so that when a person exhales the smoke out, there are no carcinogens in it.
This makes electronic cigarette much more healthy to use when compared to the usual cigarette stick.
Are there risks when using electronic cigarette?
It has been constantly debated if the electronic cigarette brings also harm to the body. according to the users, this electronic device do not actually replace the usual cigarette since the nicotine it delivers to the body is not that effective and sometimes, addicted smokers would still result in using the usual cigarette stick.
The manufacturers of many electronic cigarette products have not yet presented their product and nicotine vials to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) thus they may have not disclosed properly well all the chemicals in their products. With these unknown other chemicals, we may not know what harm it could do to our body.
Many believe that this product is a better alternative than tobacco because it is cheaper and much safer to use. But before buying one, you must make sure that the product you’ll buy is from a trusted company and not just from somewhere.
If not proven safe, it may cause consequences that would be difficult to heal in the future.
