The Safety Of Eliquid And Whether It Is Effective In Replacing The Habit Of Smoking Ciggaretes
The increase in the number of electronic cigarettes among the members of the general public has caused different debates among the experts where they seek to determine whether the habit is safe or can be considered hazardous. 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.
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. 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.
The primary component of the e-liquid is nicotine as is the case with cigarettes which is an addictive stimulant and can be harmful If used in excess. Nicotine causes vasoconstriction thus inducing tingling sensations, headaches, and blood circulation problems such as high blood pressure. Nicotine is recommended to patients who suffer from brain disorders such as ADHD and can help fight depression and improve concentration. 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. The last ingredient when making the e-liquid is flavors which the manufacturers use to improve the taste. Some brands also contain distilled water which is added to make them wick while others contain vodka which aims at improving throat hit.
