How is E liquid safer and what are its benefits

In an electronic cigarette there is a cartridge enclosed within it is added a dilute nicotine liquid and this is what is referred to as E Liquid. The atomizer in the E cigarettes vaporizes the nicotine so that you can inhale the nicotine, not as smoke but as vapor instead. As the nicotine inhaled is dilute nicotine it does not have the same harmful effects as smoking a cigarette gives. The vapor simulates the taste of smoking a tobacco cigarette. E liquid is made of either a sweet liquid Propylene Glycol or a vaporous liquid vegetable glycerin or a combination of both with nicotine and sometimes an addition of alcohol makes a perfect E liquid.

E liquid is extremely versatile as it can be sweetened into flavors like apple and cherry or given a traditional taste of tobacco or menthol.

Dr. Michael Siegel of Boston University School of Public Health concluded: “The risks of secondhand vapor from electronic cigarette use are very small in comparison to those associated with second hand tobacco smoke. While second hand smoke must be eliminated in workplaces and public places, the current data provide no justification for eliminating electronic cigarette use in these places.”

Therefore we can say that it is much safer than the traditional tobacco cigarette. It is not only nicotine that is harmful in a cigarette but also cancer causing carcinogens which are lethal chemicals not present in E liquid. The level of carcinogens in electronic cigarettes is up to 1,000 times lower than regular cigarettes.

According to a study conducted 22 young people were tested after consuming E liquid present in electronic cigarettes and 20 young people after consuming the regular cigarettes. The e-cigarette consumers only showed a slight increase in blood pressure whereas the tobacco cigarettes consumers experienced unusually elevated blood pressure, rise in heartbeat, and showing significant amount of heart dysfunction. According to the European society of cardiology “electronic cigarettes are not a healthy habit but they are a safer alternative to tobacco cigarettes”. This is true as consumption of E liquid would save a person from tobacco related diseases such as mouth cancer, lung cancer, tuber closes, hyper tension heart disease etc.

E liquid is also environmental friendly as people surrounding smokers no longer have to be victims of passive smoking as E liquid it does not produce any smoke or carbon monoxide, which could damage the atmosphere

In an online search conducted by Jean-François Etter, Institute of social and preventive medicine, University of Geneva, 57% people prefer E liquid cigarettes as they are more affordable compared to tobacco. After purchasing the kit only the cost of the E liquid has to be met unlike the tobacco cigarettes which have to be purchased daily. E liquid is also durable as it is long lasting and a 10 ml bottle can be used for several refill cartridges.

Therefore we can conclude that although nicotine is harmful for health but for chain smokers of the deadly tobacco it is a safer alternative and with proper regulatory body the consumption of E liquid may lead to nicotine replacement therapy and a person can lessen the amount of e liquid day by day till he overcomes the fixation of this addictive drug.
