We are going in a day in age where health benefit awareness are at a maximum. With the fitness craze at the highest point and diets like gluten free are all over, it’s a no brainer as to why many people are looking to quit cigarettes. The hardest part is quitting itself, especially when a lot of smokers have been smoking for a very long time. Since the liquids or the ecigs are not FDA approved, not many studies have been done or they cannot be deemed useful.
It is said there are over 500 brands of electronic cigarettes and over 8,000 different ejuice flavors. With a lot of concern towards the children, many people think it will make minors start vaping at an early age. The legislators have come up with this conclusion due to the many colorful and flavorful liquids but Vodka has come out with fruity alcohol flavors also, so why isn’t there any talk about that?
What are electronic cigarettes?
An electronic cigarette or ecig, can be cigarette shaped or even pen shaped. It is a device that contains a liquid with or without nicotine. The liquid is made up of propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (PG), water and/or nicotine. The tip can sometimes illuminate a light, mostly blue or red. The ecig produces vapor which is one of the many reasons it is deemed safer. It consists of an atomizer, battery, and eliquid.
How e-cigarettes benefit us?
No Smell – Even though America is the land of the free, there are still many people that don’t smoke. The taste itself is horrible but the smell is something that everyone gets and may not like. It is a really strong scent that burns some peoples knows and even makes them cough when they are not the ones smoking. E-Cigarettes for liquid nicotine can smell like the flavor they are producing. Some people may not like it and others just won’t care.
Improved smell and taste – Cigarettes are known to kill taste buds and the sensors in your nose. Smell is one of the most undervalued sense. With a great sense of smell, you can save yourself from deadly situations like gas leaks or fires. Even trying to eat something with your nose closed, you won’t be able to taste it.
Save money – A Pack of cigarettes on average in America costs about $7.04. That comes out to $2,569.60 every year considering you smoke a pack a day. That might be too little for some. An electronic cigarette device that’s not disposable can start at $15. A flavored liquid at $6.99 can roughly cost $335.52 if you use one 15mL a week. Together it comes out to roughly $350.52.
We don’t have much information at the moment about ecigs except that they have helped many smokers quit after many years. Short term benefits have shown that it is working but long term benefits haven’t been really made available to us. The truth is vaporizers have not been around long enough in the form they are now. E-liquids also are another thing to research on. However, scientists, cancer research groups, and more people have come to a conclusion that e-cigarettes will remain safer than traditional cigarettes that contain over 4000 chemicals.
