How Safe Is Eliquid And Is It Effective In Cutting The Smoking Habit?
There is a debate that has been initiated by the rising number of electronic cigarettes where different number of the arms of government has been debating the safety of the cigarettes. However in the recent times the attention has turned to the nicotine-laden fluid used a flavor where the focus is on the effectiveness of the fluid. There are two groups with each having its own opinion whether the eliquids are safe where one group maintain that they are more hazardous than the cigarettes. The other group however dispute that the e-liquid is hazardous since there are no documented effects that have been established thus deeming it safe as air.
Between the two groups and their basis of argument there is truth concerning the e-liquid and the effects of using the liquid to the human body. 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. When determining what product to use one therefore needs to determine the level of safety of using the product and also the relative harm of using the product when compared to other related products. When discussing the level of safety of using e-liquid it is not considered 100 percent safe but compared to the tobacco smoke that it intends to replace. It is not abnormal for the eliquids to affect consumption since the body was only designed to inhale oxygen. To determine whether the use of eliquids we determine the components that are used to manufacture eliquids since not many people are aware of them.
One of the components of the e-liquid is nicotine which is a highly addictive stimulant which when used in excess it may prove to be fatal. 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. 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.
