Electronic Cigarettes Give A Clearer Future
Cigarettes are lethal products to smokers and non-smokers alike. Analog smokers breathe in toxic fumes and exhale the same toxic fumes into the air, which can be inhaled by bystanders. There’s good reason why society has banned analog cigarettes from most public spaces and areas of public accommodation. No one wants to risk having health complications due to the act of another. These sticks of tobacco and chemicals create numerous health complications such as stroke, heart disease, and lung cancer. It would be better to give up cigarettes and live a healthier life. Unfortunately, it’s a struggle for those that want to quit, especially after smoking for decades. Cigarettes are highly addictive due to the nicotine content found within them and long-term smokers develop a habit known as the hand-mouth sensation where the smoker keeps touching his/her lips with his/her hand.
This is where electronic cigarettes come in. Users of electronic cigarettes and other vaping products have a clearer future than users of traditional cigarettes, and ‘clearer future’ is both literal and figurative. Unlike analog smokes that inhale toxic fumes from thousands of chemicals, e-cig users inhale vaporized e-liquid which is usually made of flavoring, nicotine, vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol. And unlike analog smokers that exhale clouds of smoke which will linger on clothing and furniture and leave a bad odor, e-cig users do not smell. The vapor produced by e-cigs dissipates very quickly and the vapor usually smells like the flavor from the e-liquid, so vaping Mango Madness will produce vapor that smells like mangoes. Overall, electronic cigarettes is the smarter alternative to analog cigarettes.
Though there is no conclusive study yet, smokers have claimed that electronic cigarettes have helped them quit smoking analog cigarettes and reduced their consumption because e-cigs offer varying concentrations of nicotine, giving users the option to gradually lower their nicotine needs. Many believe that electronic cigarettes will end the analog cigarette addiction, but there are others that fear electronic cigarettes will lead to more additions. Many opponents claim that fruit flavored and candy flavored e-cigs will make vaping more appealing to young children and teens because those flavors were made specifically to target minors. However, that’s just a claim from opponents against e-cigs. Where is the evidence to back that claim? There is none. But there is evidence that adults, in the general age range of 22 to 54 years old, prefer fruit flavors as their choice when vaping e-cigs. Now that’s evidence to refute the opponents’ claim. And evidence will continue to reveal itself as time goes on. The FDA is funding $270 million on electronic cigarette research projects with the results to become available sometime in 2018. And the FDA is not the only one spending on e-cig research as other government institutes and private facilities are also funding research on e-cigs as well. Electronic cigarettes are giving smokers the opportunity to curb their nicotine addiction and relieve their hand-mouth sensation. It’s a win-win situation for everyone because smokers will have a lower risk product and non-smokers will not have to smell the foul odors of smoke and ash.
