When Cigarettes Went Free From Nicotine

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.
