We all know by now that smoking is not good for your health, but many do not realize just how dangerous cigarettes are.
In the 20th century, more than 100 million people died of tobacco-related causes. That number could rise to 1 billion in the next century if no action is taken to reverse the trend. Up to 50 percent of people who use tobacco products are killed by the habit.
As the risks of smoking have become better understood, more people have taken moves to quit and a plethora of smoking-cessation products have been introduced. Among the most promising products to be introduced are e-cigarettes.
How E-Cigarettes Work
E-cigarettes look like traditional cigarettes in many cases. They even have an orange filter and a red tip that looks like fire.
But e-cigarettes don’t actually burn or produce smoke, and they don’t contain tobacco. Instead, they contain flavored liquid that is turned into vapor. You draw on them just like a cigarette, but you do not inhale any smoke. In fact, you can actually use e-cigarettes in places that you are not allowed to smoke because they do not produce any odors or smoke.
You can choose from dozens of flavorings for e-cigarettes, allowing you many more options than you enjoyed with traditional cigarettes. You can also choose from different vaporizer designs.
E-cigarettes are much BetTer than traditional cigarettes since they do not contain tobacco and all its harmful properties.
Regulations Surrounding E-cigarettes
Tobacco has become a heavily regulated industry. The Tobacco Control Act of 2009 requires that any new cigarette brands or smokeless tobacco meet strict requirements for nicotine and carcinogen content. However, existing brands do not have to make any changes to meet these guidelines.
Meanwhile, the Food and Drug Administration has introduced legislation that requires even stricter regulations for e-cigarettes — despite these devices containing no tobacco. E-cigarette manufacturers have to submit complicated and burdensome applications to remain on the market or to introduce a new product.
At the same time, the technology used in e-cigarettes has only advanced and become even BetTer. When you buy e-cigarettes, you can be confident that you are purchasing a BetTer alternative product.
Other Ways that E-Cigarettes are a BetTer Alternative
Unlike with traditional cigarettes, you know exactly what you are getting when you buy e-cigarettes. Reputable manufacturers include all the ingredients on the label, including the nicotine levels and all the flavorings, preservatives and chemicals used.
With traditional cigarettes, you get little more than a few lines about the taste and whether menthol is used.
You can also choose to buy e-cigarettes with less nicotine, which allows you to taper down over time. So long as you buy cartridges with a lower nicotine content, you will gradually work down to 0 nicotine and then quit all together.
Most e-Liquid for your electronic cigarette contain 0, 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24mg of nicotine in them, and you can read the ingredients list to know the exact amount. You can even buy cartridges that have no nicotine in them at all. You can just enjoy the taste that you like in smoking and continue with the ritual and habit of smoking without suffering from any of the unhealthy side effects.
Finally, e-cigarettes are BetTer for everyone around you because they pose no risk of second-hand smoke. The vapor that they produce is harmless to those in the vicinity. It does not even have an odor. You can use your e-cigarette in any place without fear of how it will affect others.
If you have not yet made the switch to e-cigarettes, you should consider doing so for your health.
