Electronic cigarette e-cigaretteIn the healthcare field one of the hottest debates is whether vaping is a safe way for traditional cigarette smokers to cut-down on their smoking or quit altogether. According to Web MD in some studies current evidence suggests that smoking e-cigarettes may be safer than smoking traditional cigarettes. One of the biggest health concerns pertaining to traditional cigarettes are the toxins given off by tobacco products. A bonus for e-cigarettes is that they contain no tobacco. According to some tests on e-cigarettes the toxins that they may have, appear to be less dangerous than those in traditional tobacco cigarettes.


The safety issue of e-cigarettes continue to wage in part due to the few chemicals that can be in e-cigarettes, such as nicotine. The amount of nicotine is regulated by the e-liquid used in the e-cigarette. The amount of nicotine in an e-liquid can range from 24mg down to 0mg. The e-cigarette user has the choice of what level of nicotine he wants. For the traditional cigarette smoker trying to cut-down or quit, this is an ideal way for him to reduce the level of nicotine he consumes slowly and at his own pace.


Many e-cigarettes are made to look like traditional cigarettes. This cigarette-like look and feel can be comforting to the traditional cigarette smoker that is trying to cut-down or quit. Like a traditional cigarette, the user inhales through a mouth-piece at one end of the e-cigarette. The air-flow triggers a sensor that switches on a battery-powered heater. The heater vaporizes the e-liquid that is in a small cartridge. The e-liquid may or may not contain nicotine. This also activates a light at the other end of the e-cigarette, much like the lit end of a traditional cigarette. The heater also vaporizes propylene glycol, a chemical that makes a smoke-like substance to enhance the feeling of smoking. When the smoker inhales an e-cigarette he gets a puff of hot vapor that has the same sensation as a traditional tobacco cigarette. The e-cigarette goes a long way to replicate a traditional cigarette.


Other benefits of vaping are potential lower costs and not being banned in public. The cost of traditional cigarettes per pack has sky-rocketed in recent years forcing smokers to look for cheaper alternatives. Although costs vary with product and methods used, in general, e-cigarettes can be more cost effective than traditional cigarettes and offer much more variety. E-cigarette products range from disposable, one-time use to products with rechargeable batteries and ones that can be re-filled with e-liquids. Vaping also has very few restrictions on where an e-cigarette can be smoked, unlike the regulations on traditional tobacco cigarettes.
