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. Most people, however, have in the recent times shifted from the use of electronic cigarettes to the use of nicotine-laden flavors thus shifting the attention of the researchers. 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. However one should note that there is nothing that can term to be 100 percent safe especially for human consumption since even clean water which is purified can be a cause of death. 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.
During the manufacture of the eliquids the primary component is usually nicotine which is usually highly addictive and at times dangerous when used in excess. Nicotine can create vasoconstriction which causes 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 that is used in making the eliquids are the glycol compounds such as propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin which are used to create smoke illusion. Manufacturers also include flavors to the eliquids mainly the food flavors. 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.
