The Safety Of Eliquid And Whether It Is Effective In Replacing The Habit Of Smoking Ciggaretes
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. The other group however dispute that the e-liquid is hazardous since there are no documented effects that have been established thus deeming it safe as air.
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. 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. The main consideration, therefore, is the level of safety that any product that one intends to use and its probable harm when compared to the other similar products that one can use. Thus when determining whether the use of e-liquid we do not seek to prove that it is 100 percent safe but compare it with the cigarettes which they are replacing in the recent times. 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. Nicotine causes vasoconstriction thus inducing tingling sensations, headaches, and blood circulation problems such as high blood pressure. 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. The last ingredient when making the e-liquid is flavors which the manufacturers use to improve the taste. Manufacturers may also add distilled water to the eliquids to make them wick while others add vodka or pure grain alcohol aiming at improving throat hit.
