How Safe Is Eliquid And Is It Effective In Cutting The Smoking Habit?
There is a debate that has been initiated by the rising number of electronic cigarettes where different number of the arms of government has been debating the safety of the cigarettes. However in the recent times the attention has turned to the nicotine-laden fluid used a flavor where the focus is on the effectiveness of the fluid. 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.
Each group may argue that their argument is correct, but there is need to provide proof to support the arguments which actually lies in between the two arguments. 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. 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. When discussing the level of safety of using e-liquid it is not considered 100 percent safe but compared to the tobacco smoke that it intends to replace. Since the body was designed to inhale oxygen, any other product when inhaled will have an effect on the normal functioning of the body. 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.
During the manufacture of the eliquids the primary component is usually nicotine which is usually highly addictive and at times dangerous when used in excess. Nicotine can create vasoconstriction which causes 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. The second component used in making e-liquid is a glycerol compound mostly the propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin which is added to create the illusion of smoke. 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.
