E-Cigarette- A Healthy Alternative
E-cigarettes offer smokers a good alternative. This is a new innovation that they may wish to try to improve their health. This new invention is called an e-cigarette, also referred to as the electronic cigarette or smokeless cigarette. Users of these devices may have some questions regarding the use, and there are a couple things that can lead to confusion. Most of these devices use what is called an atomizer to heat the solution to create the fog like effect. It is important that users take good care of their atomizer in order to maintain good use.
E-cigarettes are approximately the same size and shape as a normal cigarette, but instead of tobacco and a filter, the electronic cigarette comprises mainly of a cartridge, atomiser, and a rechargeable battery. Although e-cigarettes have the same look and feel and they taste like regular cigarettes, they operate quite differently. An e-cigarette doesn't really burn tobacco, but when you inhale you activate a flow censor that discharges a water vapor which contains nicotine, propylene glycol and a smell which mimics the essence of tobacco. Basically, this means you are getting your nicotine from the e-cigarette without getting all the carcinogens found in regular cigarettes such as glue, tar, hydrocarbons and the hundreds of additives.
E-cigarettes are much healthier alternate than its traditional counterpart, as without the presence of tobacco they do not emit carbon-monoxide or tar, and yet they still provide the user with the necessary amount of nicotine to substitute their original smoking habit. However, although electronic cigarettes are not providing the user with the as many dangerous toxins and carcinogens as a normal cigarette, the user's intake of nicotine is still very harmful. Nicotine is still a highly toxic chemical, so whilst e-cigarettes are considered to be less dangerous, they should not be viewed as a harmless, long-term substitute for tobacco.
