You may have heard about electronic cigarettes. Unless you have been living under a rock, chances are you have heard about them. But, have you really stopped and asked yourself if you know these devices. The reality is that the information about electronic cigarettes is at best a mixed bag. The information that is out there is mixed. Some of which are even untrue. That is why you need to learn more about them. This article will help you get to know the devices that are touted to become the savior of smokers from premature death.
What are electronic cigarettes?
Basically, they are devices that are able to convert liquid into aerosol. It is powered by a small battery. The battery is disguised as a shaft that looks like a cigarette. The shaft is connected to a faux filter that is housing the cartomizer. The two-piece design has become the standard electronic cigarette design. It means the battery is attached to an atomizer and a cartridge that is filled with e-liquid.
At the heart of the electronic cigarette is the e-liquid. It is basically a cocktail of propylene glycol, glycerin, water, flavorings and the piece de resistance the liquid nicotine. Liquid nicotine is the one that smokers are after. Nicotine is a highly addictive substance that is the one being sought after by smokers. Until recently, we get plenty of our nicotine via tobacco. The idea behind electronic cigarettes is that it provides an alternative to smokers. An alternative that is less harmful and possibly healthier.
Can electronic cigarettes stop smokers from smoking?
We are not sure yet. But the experience, anecdotal evidence and other data point to that direction. The reason why we can’t say that for now is due to the lack of significant number of studies related to the smoking cessation ability of vapes. In recent months, there has been a study showing cancer patients will not be able to get some help with smoking cessation with the use of electronic cigarettes. Then again, that study has been flaked and called to be flawed by some addiction experts. The bulk of the studies and data purport to show there is a semblance of ability for electronic cigarettes to help smokers get away from their addiction.
Are electronic cigarettes safe?
We don’t know either. In the first place, electronic cigarettes were invented by a Chinese pharmacist with the objective of harm reduction. Harm reduction simply means is the ability to provide the same experience and other features without bringing along all of the harmful effects of the de facto standard. In this case, the de facto standard is conventional cigarettes. Tobacco cigarettes are the worse. Tobacco kills six million people worldwide including 400,000 Americans each year. This means that there is nothing more sinister than tobacco smoke in terms of causing harm to the body and health.
We do know, however, electronic cigarettes are safer than tobacco. There is no way for electronic cigarettes to be more dangerous than tobacco or at least equal. By default, the design of electronic cigarettes do not allow the inclusion of tar and other chemicals that have made tobacco smoke so deadly and toxic. That is why it is pretty far-fetched to think that electronic cigarettes are deadly and toxic, like the orthodox standard. It is possible they are just out to tarnish the reputation of electronic cigarettes.
Are electronic cigarettes attracting young people?
This is a very touchy subject, because we don’t want young kids to become addicted to nicotine. Nicotine is not exactly benign. We have to guard our young kids from using an addictive product such as electronic cigarettes. There have been a lot of thinks talked and told about the increased usage of electronic cigarettes among the youth. The latest survey is the increased use of vapes among Scottish young people.
Yet, the bottom line is this: young people do not see the products as cool. The lack of the so-called “danger factor” helps reduce the allure of electronic cigarettes. We can attribute the increased use of vapes to two reasons. One, young people are using the vapes as an alternative to smoking so they can get nicotine in places where smoking is not allowed. And two, it is possible they are using the e-cigarettes so they can have the ability to quit their addiction for good. Either way, their health will love them for it.
There have been a lot of things that have been told for or against vaping. What we do know is that there are plenty of things that have been said that are not true. And this is changing people’s attitude about vaping. Somehow, we need to put the truth out there because with vaping we are talking about saving lives here.
