How Safe Is Eliquid And Is It Effective In Cutting The Smoking Habit?
Different experts have set up researches with a view to establishing the safety of using electronic cigarettes as the number of people using the electronic cigarettes among the public increasing daily thus making the habit a matter of concern. 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 two groups who argue about the safety of the eliquids and its effect on the human bodies where one group argue that they are more harmful 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. 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.
The primary component of the e-liquid is nicotine as is the case with cigarettes which is an addictive stimulant and can be harmful If used in excess. Nicotine causes vasoconstriction thus inducing tingling sensations, headaches, and blood circulation problems such as high blood pressure. However nicotine can help fight depression, improve concentration and is recommended for patients who suffer from different brain disorders such as 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.
