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. In the recent time people have shifted to the use nicotine-laden flavors where the experts have been out to determine whether they are also safe and effective in cutting the smoking habit. There are groups that contend that the e-liquid is more harmful than the cigarettes implying that it has more hazardous effect on human body than smoking 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.
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. 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. It is not abnormal for the eliquids to affect consumption since the body was only designed to inhale oxygen. The safety level of using liquid is dependent on the components which are used in its manufacture which remain a mystery to many.
During the manufacture of the eliquids the primary component is usually nicotine which is usually highly addictive and at times dangerous when used in excess. Nicotine can create vasoconstriction which causes 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. Different e-liquid brands have different flavors added. Manufacturers may also add distilled water to the eliquids to make them wick while others add vodka or pure grain alcohol aiming at improving throat hit.
