Is Using Eliquids Safer Than Cigarettes And Are They Effective In Substituting The Use Of Cigarettes.
The increase in the number of electronic cigarettes among the members of the general public has caused different debates among the experts where they seek to determine whether the habit is safe or can be considered hazardous. 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. Another group, however, disputes the effects of the e-liquid on the human body arguing that it is safe since no effects have so far been documented thus deeming their use safe.
Between the two groups and their basis of argument there is truth concerning the e-liquid and the effects of using the liquid to the human body. However one should note that there is nothing that can term to be 100 percent safe especially for human consumption since even clean water which is purified can be a cause of death. The main consideration, therefore, is the level of safety that any product that one intends to use and its probable harm when compared to the other similar products that one can use. Thus when determining whether the use of e-liquid we do not seek to prove that it is 100 percent safe but compare it with the cigarettes which they are replacing in the recent times. Our bodies were designed to inhale oxygen, and thus anything different from it when inhaled may have effects on our bodies. The safety levels of using any product depends on the components used during the manufacture, but not many people are aware of the components of the e-liquid.
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 causes vasoconstriction thus inducing 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 that is used in making the eliquids are the glycol compounds such as propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin which are used to create smoke illusion. Manufacturers also include flavors to the eliquids mainly the food flavors. Manufacturers may also add distilled water to the eliquids to make them wick while others add vodka or pure grain alcohol aiming at improving throat hit.
