A Tint Of Mint In Your Stick

Health Canada, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organization have all issued warnings in the past five years about the potential dangers and many unknowns about e-cigarettes.

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’.

When Smoke Escapes E Cigs

Vegetable Glycerin is a carbohydrate that is derived from vegetable oils. It is commonly found in many foods and beverages and is also used in medical, pharmaceutical, and personal care products. I’ll tell you what’s the links of these oils to e cigarettes, later in this section.

Till then, counting the best of benefits of these cigarettes –

  • it has the same food energy as table sugar.
  • it does not raise blood sugar levels.
  • it does not feed the bacteria that forms plaque and causes dental cavities.

All eCigPros eLiquid contains 100% Vegetable Glycerin (VG) as a carrier and do not use any Propylene Glycol (PG). VG is well known among experienced users of electronic cigarettes to produce much better vapor than PG; also, some people are allergic to Propylene Glycol. However, Vegetable Glycerin is more expensive than Propylene Glycol; for that reason the vast majority of eLiquid sold by other companies use Propylene Glycol.

E-cigarettes do not just save the lives of smokers: they bring other benefits too. Unlike cigarettes, they do not damage the health of bystanders. They do not even smell that bad, so there is no public nuisance, let alone hazard, and thus no reason to ban their use in public places. Pubs and restaurants should welcome them with open arms.

No wonder the e-cigarette market is growing. Though still small compared with that for real smokes, it doubled in America last year and is likely to do so again in 2013 (see article).

Who could object? Quite a lot of people, it seems. Instead of embracing e-cigarettes, many health lobbyists are determined to stub them out. Some claim that e-cigarettes may act as “gateways” to the real thing. Others suggest that the flavourings sometimes added to the nicotine-bearing solution make e-cigarettes especially attractive to children—a sort of nicotine equivalent of “alcopop” drinks. But these objections seem to be driven by puritanism, not by reason. Some health lobbyists are so determined to prevent people doing anything that remotely resembles smoking—a process referred to as “denormalisation”—that they refuse to endorse a product that reproduces the pleasure of smoking without the harm.

In some places politicians and other busybodies are listening. Several countries (including Austria and New Zealand) restrict the sale of e-cigarettes, for example by classifying them as medical devices; others (Brazil and Singapore) ban them altogether. Some airlines, too, ban passengers from using e-cigarettes on their planes.

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.

Some Chocolaty 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.

Know It All – Nicotine Free E Cigs

Studies suggesting that the devices help people quit are too few and too small on which to base any firm, science-based recommendations or advice, says Thomas Glynn, Ph.D., director of International Cancer Control at the American Cancer Society.

And in many parts of the U.S., e-cigarettes can be used in traditionally nonsmoking areas, such as bars, restaurants, and offices. That’s a problem when you consider that smoking has declined among Americans in recent years largely due to campaigns that prohibit people from lighting up in public places.

And while electronic cigarettes are often marketed as a healthier alternative, there’s no guarantee that all of the devices are safe. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not yet issued final regulations on e-cigarettes, so “consumers cannot always be sure of what they are inhaling,” says Glynn.

Many are made in China, where manufacturing oversight isn’t as tight; additionally, studies have found contaminants and impurities in a few brands, albeit at low levels. Until e-cigarettes are regulated, says Nathan Cobb, M.D., a pulmonologist at Georgetown University Medical Center, it’s best to use FDA-approved nicotine-delivery devices, such as –

  • Patches
  • Gum

Some e-cigarette companies claim the devices are safer and can help smokers quit. But critics say the companies’ statements are unproven and their health claims are unsubstantiated.It is true that e-cigarettes do not contain the over 4,000 chemical compounds created by a burning cigarette. Many of these are toxic and/or carcinogenic. All that you find in all in regular cigarette smoke –

  • Tar
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Nitrogen oxides
  • Hydrogen cyanide
  • Ammonia

However, nicotine itself is dangerous and highly addictive, and with e-cigarettes, smokers may not know how much of it they’re getting. A lack of regulation and quality control means the amount of nicotine in each drag of an e-cigarette is inconsistent. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration determined that since e-cigarettes are not considered a drug.

Even if, as some enthusiasts claim, e-cigarettes can help a smoker quit, could it also entice young people to start? Health experts and the administration have both expressed concern e-cigarettes are marketed toward young people since the devices come in pink, gold or blue with flavors such as chocolate and bubble gum. Plus, the products’ labels don’t have a health warning.

When E Cigs Come To Your Rescue

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.

Nicotine solutions sold separately for use in refillable cartridges are sometimes referred to as “e-liquid”, and contain flavoring. They consist of nicotine dissolved in propylene glycol (PG) and/or glycerin (glycerol). Both PG and glycerin are common food additives.

Solutions are also available in differing nicotine concentrations, to let the user decide the amount of nicotine to be taken in. Concentrations range from Zero Nicotine, low, medium, to high and extra-high doses. The concentration ratings are often printed at the e-liquid bottle or cartridge, although the standard notation “mg/ml” often gets abbreviated to just “mg”.

Some flavour varieties resemble traditional cigarette types, such as regular tobacco and menthol, and some mimic specific cigarette brands, such as USA Mix or Kamel. Fruit and other flavors are also available, such as –

  • Watermelon
  • Apple
  • Coffee

To accommodate dripping many retailers sell specifically designed mouthpieces called drip tips. They fit on-top of an atomizer much like a cartridge however they are completely hollow and have a wide mouth opening so you can drip juice directly into the atomizer without removing the drip tip itself. Drip tips come in different colors and materials, most will have an o-ring for a nice tight seal with the atomizer. There’s really not much to them, so just pick one that jumps out at you.

Since tobacco is proved to be dangerous to the health of people, many smokers are turning their ways to the use of electronic cigarettes. These devices in the form of nifty electrical inhalers are being marketed as free of tobacco-smoke. Hence, e-cigarettes give smokers another alternative for smoking traditional cigarettes. But the question is still alive in minds of many – are e-cigarettes really different than traditional cigarettes? Read on to know the secret of e-cigarettes.

The E-cigarette is in the size and design of a real cigarette and it works simply great to mimic the use of cigarette. However, the difference is that it doesn’t need flame to burn. This comes in automatic and semi-automatic forms. All you need is to keep it in your mouth and start inhaling. It transforms e-liquid into vapor to give you a great sensation of smoking.

According to manufacturers and some reviews, smoking e-cigs feels much smoother than smoking real tobacco cigarette. Therefore, e-cigarettes give smokers another way and alternative to enjoy the nicotine sensation their bodies crave for. Because of that, many of the users of e-cigs say that the experience of smoking smokeless cigarettes is much more enjoyable than traditional cigarettes. In addition, you can enjoy various nicotine levels, as well as different flavors like chocolate, menthol, strawberry and more.
