Profound Researches On Nicotine Free E Cigarettes

Lynne Dawkins and her colleagues from the University of East London write in the journal Addiction that there are currently over 100 brands of e-cigarettes, and 3.5 million devices were sold in 2012.

Despite the devices’ growing popularity, the researchers say, little is known about who uses e-cigarettes and why.

For the new study, they created an Internet survey that was accessible from the websites of two e-cigarette manufacturers from September 2011 to May 2012. The survey took about 15 to 20 minutes to complete.Overall, 1,123 ex-smokers and 218 current smokers from 33 different countries took the survey. About 16 percent of participants were from the U.S. and another 77 percent were from Europe. Seventy percent were men.

About three quarters of respondents said they started using e-cigarettes as a “complete alternative to smoking,” and 22 percent said they started using the devices for “other reasons” – including stopping smoking (7 percent), for health reasons (6 percent) and to get around smoking restrictions (3 percent).

Some 86 percent said they had either not smoked cigarettes for several weeks or months since using the e-cigarette or that the amount they smoked had decreased dramatically.The researchers also found that the majority of people responding to the surveys felt their health had improved since using the devices.

“Most people reported great health benefits. Namely –

  • Their cough was reduced
  • Their breathing was improved,”

said Dawkins, who added that the benefits are most likely from people smoking fewer cigarettes and not an effect of the devices or vapors.

Still, Dawkins told Reuters Health that more research is needed on the long-term effects of e-cigarettes.

Siegel said there’s no question that e-cigarettes are safer than smoking, but there are concerns over some of the vapors’ ingredients – including propylene glycol, which irritates airways, and formaldehyde, which is known to raise lung and nasal cancer risk when it’s inhaled.

The Latest Fad – Nicotine Free Cigarettes

The nicotine free E-Cigarette is one of the newest and most successful alternatives to traditional tobacco cigarettes on the market today. Thanks to brand new technology, smokers can finally enjoy smoking whenever they want and wherever they want.

The electronic cigarette looks and acts like a real cigarette in every way except that it does not burn any tobacco. Since the e-cigarette is a non-flammable and non-tobacco product this means it has none of the harmful effects that are found with smoking traditional cigarettes.

The electronic cigarette is the tobacco alternative that smokers all over the world have been waiting for. No more putting up with increased taxes and prices that make smoking nearly impossible. Smokers can finally smoke in places where traditional tobacco cigarettes are banned, giving them back their freedom to enjoy their habit wherever they want.

The vapor produced in an electronic cigarette uses a nicotine base liquid which is known as E-Liquid. This liquid is heated by the atomizer to deliver the sensation, taste, and feel of smoking. You can have the best e-cigarette in the world, but your vapor experience will not be enjoyable without quality e-liquid. E-liquid can vary in –

  • Flavor
  • Consistency
  • Throat hit
  • Nicotine concentration

The flavor in the e-liquid varies from where it comes from, what components were used to make the liquid, and what flavorings were added. Naturally derived nicotine manufactured from organic plant sources usually taste better and are safer to use than synthetic nicotine. Natural flavorings from flavor concentrates are usually added to the liquid to give its distinctive flavors. These flavors are usually the same flavoring used to flavor food and candies.

Throat hit is the sensation felt in the back of the throat when the vapor is inhaled. In the early days of vaping, people felt vaping an e-cigarette were like inhaling air instead of the smoking sensation they enjoy compared to real cigarettes. Increased throat hit makes using an e-cigarette feel and taste more like real smoking. The liquid base, concentration of nicotine, and voltage of the e-cig affects the liquid’s throat hit.

E Cigs, Love For Smokeless-ness

A recent study by the British health campaigning charity Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) found that the number of people in that country who reported trying electronic cigarettes more than doubled, from 9 percent in 2010 to 22 percent in 2012.

Almost all the new users were people who already had smoked cigarettes and 40 percent of them hoped switching would free them from the usual hazards of smoking.

Those hazards include an increased risk of dying from cancer, mostly due to inhaling the tar and other toxins released by tobacco when it is burned.

But are electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, really safer than smoking?

Amanda Sandford, a research manager for ASH in London, says the only tobacco product the new devices contain is nicotine.

“Nicotine, compared to tobacco smoke, is relatively benign. It is the addictive component of tobacco, of course, and that is what keeps people coming back to smoking, but the harm [in smoking] comes largely from the inhaling of tobacco smoke,” Sandford says.

“Nicotine itself, once it is isolated and extracted from tobacco and just used in its pure state, is relatively harmless.”

E-cigarettes, which are inhalers, use a small battery to heat a dose of liquid nicotine into mist. The mist also contains –

  • Water
  • Flavoring
  • Propylene glycol

And even a solvent for flavorings that are not very soluble on their own.

Sandford says it is still too early to know for certain the health effects of e-cigarettes because the products only arrived in Britain in quantity two to three years ago. Extensive medical testing still has to be done, leaving the door open to questions.

One question is whether people will smoke more e-cigarettes than they would conventional cigarettes because they believe they are safer, and what health risks the increased nicotine addiction might bring.

Just The Flavour Of Tobacco, Not The Harms – E Cigs

They look and feel like real cigarettes, but they’re much more than that. Doubling in market share annually, electronic cigarettes are taking off. Introduced to the U.S. market in 2007, e-cigarettes give smokers the freedom to smoke whenever and wherever they want, tobacco-free, while simultaneously quitting their traditional smoking habits. But there are still a lot of question surrounding the boom of the e-cig.

In the U.S., e-cigs aren’t subject to tobacco laws and the Food and Drug Administration has yet to officially speak out against them. E-cig brands seem to be popping up everywhere. Presented as –

  • Healthier
  • Cheaper
  • More environmentally-friendly than cigarettes

Smokers are using them to break their habit and celebrities are endorsing them–but this new high-tech smoking trend presents a variety of aspects worth a second look.

It looks like a cigarette, smokes like a cigarette, but doesn’t damage or smell like one. This product is a tobacco-free simulation of the cigarette experience. It’s actually an electronic inhaler. The flame is simulated, along with the vapor smoke, and plastic ash tip. The whole experience is “fake,” but satisfying. E-cigarette smokers inhale and exhale a liquid nicotine vapor heated by a battery; the amount of nicotine is chosen by the user.

Many other substitutes have failed, but the smoking experience provided by e-cigs is a sure sign of success for this product and market. Why? Because people addicted to cigarettes are addicted to holding the packing, taking out a cigarette, putting it to their lips, and inhaling. The entire step-by-step process is a package that triggers the emotional response of the smoker.

The niche for this smokeless product might be the key to understanding the success of the e-cig. Take smoke as an example. Both smokers and nonsmokers hate the smell of smoke; e-cigs have a pleasant aroma–an important differentiator in the market.

E Cigarettes And Tobacco Flavour

Among the chief concerns are the fact that nicotine e-cigarettes contain nitrosamines, a known carcinogen, and that they often come in fruit or candy flavours like chocolate, cherry or piña colada that may appeal to youth and could lead them to get hooked on cigarettes.

If the effects of e-cigarettes containing nicotine are so grave, why are health experts pushing for their approval here?

Boston University’s Siegel said the dangers are greatly exaggerated. While it’s true that e-cigarettes contain trace levels of nitrosamines, so do approved nicotine replacement therapy products, such as patches and gums. The amounts are very low and don’t appear to cause any health problems, he said. And unlike those products, e-cigarettes afford smokers who are hooked on the act of holding a cigarette, taking a drag and inhaling, a very similar experience.

“We know hundreds of thousands of people are dying from cigarettes, yet those are perfectly legal,” said Siegel, who does not accept financial compensation from any e-cigarette company. “If [Health Canada is] going to ban anything, why not ban tobacco cigarettes?”

The real potential of e-cigarettes is harm reduction, said Theo Moraes, a pediatric respirologist at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children. Refusing to regulate nicotine-containing e-cigarettes ignores the reality that many Canadians are already purchasing them online or buying them elsewhere, he said. Naming certain of its benefits –

  • No smoke

Electronic cigarettes give off no smoke! They only produce water vapor.  There are no pollutants being released into the air every time you take a puff. It’s the ‘green’ alternative to traditional cigarettes.

  • No Smoke smell

No more smoke smelling hair and clothes. When you use an electronic cigarette you breath out pure water vapor which contains no odor. I have used mine in the homes of non-smokers with no complaints.

  • Smoke where ever and when ever you want

Electronic cigarettes allow you to puff where ever you are so you can get your nicotine fix in places where smoking is not permitted. Now you can calm your cravings at work, in the restaurant, at the bar, or airport without having to step out for a ‘smoking break’.
