Is Using Eliquids Safer Than Cigarettes And Are They Effective In Substituting The Use Of Cigarettes.
There is a debate that has been initiated by the rising number of electronic cigarettes where different number of the arms of government has been debating the safety of the cigarettes. In the recent time people have shifted to the use nicotine-laden flavors where the experts have been out to determine whether they are also safe and effective in cutting the smoking habit. There are two groups with each having its own opinion whether the eliquids are safe where one group maintain that they are more hazardous than the cigarettes. The other group however dispute that the e-liquid is hazardous since there are no documented effects that have been established thus deeming it safe as air.
While each group may hold their argument to be correct there is need to establish the truth about the e-liquid flavors by scrutinizing the components used and also considering each group’s argument. Of all the products that human being s have been using in their daily activities there is none that can be considered 100 per cent safe for human consumption which can be illustrated by the fact that even purified clean drinking water can also cause death as it causes hyponatremia disease. What matters when one is consuming different products is their level of safety as well as their relative harm compared to other products that one can be using. When discussing the level of safety of using e-liquid it is not considered 100 percent safe but compared to the tobacco smoke that it intends to replace. Our bodies were designed to inhale oxygen, and thus anything different from it when inhaled may have effects on our bodies. The safety level of using liquid is dependent on the components which are used in its manufacture which remain a mystery to many.
One of the components of the e-liquid is nicotine which is a highly addictive stimulant which when used in excess it may prove to be fatal. Nicotine can create vasoconstriction which causes tingling sensations, headaches and blood circulation problems such as high blood pressure. Nicotine is recommended to patients who suffer from brain disorders such as ADHD and can help fight depression and improve concentration. The second component used in making e-liquid is a glycerol compound mostly the propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin which is added to create the illusion of smoke. The last ingredient when making the e-liquid is flavors which the manufacturers use to improve the taste. Some e-liquid brands also contain added ingredients such as distilled water which is added to make it wick and vodka or pure grain alcohol to improve throat hit.
