How Safe Is Eliquid And Is It Effective In Cutting The Smoking Habit?
Different experts have set up researches with a view to establishing the safety of using electronic cigarettes as the number of people using the electronic cigarettes among the public increasing daily thus making the habit a matter of concern. Most people, however, have in the recent times shifted from the use of electronic cigarettes to the use of nicotine-laden flavors thus shifting the attention of the researchers. There are groups that contend that the e-liquid is more harmful than the cigarettes implying that it has more hazardous effect on human body than smoking 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.
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. 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. 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. The use of eliquids is not an exclusion as it cannot be proved to be 100 percent safe but can be compared with cigarettes as many people are replacing the use of cigarettes with the eliquids. 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. The effects of using nicotine in human body include a headache, tingling sensations and blood circulation problems which are a result of vasoconstriction caused by nicotine. However nicotine can help fight depression, improve concentration and is recommended for patients who suffer from different brain disorders such as ADHD. Glycol compounds are also used in making the eliquids where the two main compounds are propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin where they are used to create smoke illusion. Different e-liquid brands have different flavors added. Some brands also contain distilled water which is added to make them wick while others contain vodka which aims at improving throat hit.
