How Safe Is Eliquid And Is It Effective In Cutting The Smoking Habit?
The increase in the number of electronic cigarettes among the members of the general public has caused different debates among the experts where they seek to determine whether the habit is safe or can be considered hazardous. 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 second group, however, argue that the eliquids are safe for human use as there are no effects that have so far been documented to have resulted from one using eliquids.
While each group may hold their argument to be correct there is need to establish the truth about the e-liquid flavors by scrutinizing the components used and also considering each group’s argument. There is no product that a human being uses can be termed to be 100 percent safe for use not even the purified clean drinking water as it can also cause death due to the fact that 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. The use of eliquids is not an exclusion as it cannot be proved to be 100 percent safe but can be compared with cigarettes as many people are replacing the use of cigarettes with the eliquids. Our bodies were designed to inhale oxygen, and thus anything different from it when inhaled may have effects on our bodies. 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. The effects of using nicotine in human body include a headache, tingling sensations and blood circulation problems which are a result of vasoconstriction caused by nicotine. Nicotine is recommended to patients who suffer from brain disorders such as ADHD and can help fight depression and improve concentration. 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. Some brands also contain distilled water which is added to make them wick while others contain vodka which aims at improving throat hit.
