E Cigarette-Myths and Facts
1. E cigarette burns - False
Although the name of the e cigarette somehow makes the use of the term "burn", but in fact there is no combustion in e cigarettes. Users of these devices do not inhale smoke, but only the liquid vapor in which nicotine is dissolved. It is very important difference because during combustion - the rapid oxidation - tobacco in traditional cigarettes, there are many dangerous substances to health. Scientists estimate that tobacco smoke is at least 5,000 chemicals. In an e cigarettes their number was reduced to just a few. This makes it easier to assess their potential harmful or not.
2. E cigarettes harm passive smokers - False
The problem of passive smoking for the electronic cigarette is minor Indeed: if a non-smoker enters the club, which is up gray smoke after a few minutes, you come out of there, smelling smoke, and your lungs and circulatory system will react. When, however, comes up with even a tiny room in which to spend a few hours with a smoker, pish! - User of e cigarettes, only really jealous wife could feel a trace odor. Research in the Fraunhofer Wilhelm Klauditz-Institut in Braunschweig have shown that in a room where someone inhal fumes nicotine e cigarettes, detected only traces of nicotine and flavors. In the same "cloud" (before it went into the lungs of the user) was, however, four times less than the potentially dangerous substances in cigarette smoke, what's more - the ones that have been detected, there were also much lower concentration. Dr. John Ecakfeldt says: "In a room where someone is using the e cigarette, the amount of nicotine in the air is lower than the threshold of detection. This is her at least 30 times less than the analogues, and probably even a hundred times less. In 1 m3 cloud of e-nicotine cigarette is less than 100 grams of eggplant (10 mg / 100 g), and this amount is comparable with a small cauliflower ". Have you ever heard anyone advise against eating cauliflower or eggplant? Exactly.
3. Gums and inhalers contain the same nicotine that e-cigarettes - Truth
Yes. Although the ads can meet the definition 'therapeutic nicotine, "but the term" therapeutic nicotine "is purely a marketing procedure, used by manufacturers gum or inhalers. "Nicotine in the tobacco leaf, chewing, sliced and inhalers and the liquid e cigarette is the same compound. It is extracted from the extraction of tobacco. There is also no point in highlighting (as some manufacturers of liquids) that nicotine in a bottle is a natural. Synthetic nicotine indeed exist, but due to high production costs, it is used only in small quantities in laboratories "- explains Dr. John Eckfealdt , a doctor of chemistry and known in the environment of users of e-cigarettes blogger Old Chemist.
4. E Cig helps people quit smoking - Truth
Definitely help. "International Journal of Clinical Practice" has recently published the results of more than 100 users of e-cigarettes. It turned out that 78% of them completely given up smoking, although previously burnt an average of 25 cigarettes. The effectiveness of e cigs cessation, or at least reducing smoking is confirmed by the study of Italian scientists. Researchers persuaded 40 traditional cigarette smokers who do not intend to throw habit, they began to use e-cigs. We found that after six months, nine participants stopped smoking in general, of which only six limited to electronic cigarettes, and 3 gave up nicotine completely. 12% of respondents reduced the number of analog cigarettes by up to 80% (from 30 to only 3 a day), and 32% reduced the number of cigarettes smoked tobacco by half. Is the e cig to help wean the nicotine, is another matter. Used in them liquids usually contain nicotine, so help satisfy cravings without inhaling all much more harmful combustion products of tobacco. However, in the conventional cigarette addiction it plays a major role not only nicotine, but a variety of other substances conducive addiction. Dr. John Eckfealdt writes on his blog: "The tobacco is not only nicotine, which in itself is not as highly addictive as until recently it seemed. It has also surprisingly a lot of sucrose. In the course of combustion present in tobacco sugar produce it, what is necessary to addiction - acetaldehyde. This is one of the most powerful MAO inhibitors, responsible for increasing the amount of serotonin in the brain. " Moreover, by using e-cig can gradually reduce the amount of nicotine inhaled and eventually move all the fluids containing the substance.
5. E cigs are safe - False

You have to remember, however, that while nicotine itself is not carcinogenic, it is, however, a potent neurotoxin, or poison. Just 60 to 100 mg of pure nicotine to kill a man. The much smaller doses also are not neutral. After getting into the lungs, causes almost immediate detrimental to the health of the body's response - the blood vessels become narrow and the heart rate accelerates. Such changes over time, cause permanent weakening of the cardiovascular system. So if you do not smoke, do not reach for e-cigarettes. On each box with the device it is information that says that it is intended for smokers. But if you smoke analogs, especially if you smoke a lot of them, more and more published research suggests that electronic alternatives are much less dangerous than tobacco. Some official authorities, including the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration), warn against the use of e-cigarettes, indicating eg. The fact that there is no evidence that they are safe. On the other hand there is also evidence that it is safe bike riding and eating donuts. Above all, we have countless evidence that traditional cigarettes are deadly. So it would be best to give up nicotine completely. If you can not do that, reach for the e-cigarette. According to those who switched, you will feel better. And when they come to light any new facts related to their harmfulness, we will let you know.

In the electronic cigarettes these dangerous substances do not arise and this is one of their biggest advantages.
