The Safety Of Eliquid And Whether It Is Effective In Replacing The Habit Of Smoking Ciggaretes
Different experts have set up researches with a view to establishing the safety of using electronic cigarettes as the number of people using the electronic cigarettes among the public increasing daily thus making the habit a matter of concern. Most people, however, have in the recent times shifted from the use of electronic cigarettes to the use of nicotine-laden flavors thus shifting the attention of the researchers. There are two groups who argue about the safety of the eliquids and its effect on the human bodies where one group argue that they are more harmful than the cigarettes. Another group, however, disputes the effects of the e-liquid on the human body arguing that it is safe since no effects have so far been documented thus deeming their use safe.
Each group may argue that their argument is correct, but there is need to provide proof to support the arguments which actually lies in between the two arguments. Of all the products that human being s have been using in their daily activities there is none that can be considered 100 per cent safe for human consumption which can be illustrated by the fact that even purified clean drinking water can also cause death as it causes hyponatremia disease. 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. The safety level of using liquid is dependent on the components which are used in its manufacture which remain a mystery to many.
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 can create vasoconstriction which causes tingling sensations, headaches and blood circulation problems such as high blood pressure. Nicotine is however useful in fighting depression and also improves concentration and medical doctors also recommend it to patients suffering from different disorders including ADHD. 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. Manufacturers also include flavors to the eliquids mainly the food flavors. Some e-liquid brands also contain added ingredients such as distilled water which is added to make it wick and vodka or pure grain alcohol to improve throat hit.
