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. 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 second group, however, argue that the eliquids are safe for human use as there are no effects that have so far been documented to have resulted from one using eliquids.
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. 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. When determining what product to use one therefore needs to determine the level of safety of using the product and also the relative harm of using the product when compared to other related products. 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. It is not abnormal for the eliquids to affect consumption since the body was only designed to inhale oxygen. To determine whether the use of eliquids we determine the components that are used to manufacture eliquids since not many people are aware of them.
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 however useful in fighting depression and also improves concentration and medical doctors also recommend it to patients suffering from different disorders including 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. 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.
