It has been reported that E-Cigarettes, commonly called Vapers, actually contain more cancer causing substances than traditional cigarettes, including increased levels of carbon monoxide and various other chemicals which are unstable organic compounds.
It is also revealed that these vaping devices can contain over 80% more nicotine than a traditional cigarette, meaning you are taking in far more of the poisonous chemical every time you puff.
The smokeless cigarettes, created by Phillip Morris, America’s biggest tobacco company also didn’t fare well. These smokeless cigarettes vary from traditional e-cigs, as they use tobacco sticks with brands offering heat sticks, which doesn’t burn the tobacco, but mealy heats it to release the chemicals.
While E-Cigs use nicotine laced liquid, which creates a vapour which contains the same kind of chemicals a normal cigarette does.
There is also an argument saying that people will ‘smoke’ more using these devices, for unlike the traditional cigarette, where you smoke it down, and you have a visual that stimulates the brain letting it know you’ve had a cigarette, these don’t shrink in size, and many people are using them as a type of pacifier.
Though we know that smoking is bad for you, it is said by experts that these electronic cigarettes will never be as safe as smoking a conventional cigarette.
If you are one of the many people who have been considering giving up smoking and have considered using an e-cig as the way to help wean you off your smoking addiction, then maybe it is time for you to think again!
The best way for you to get fit and healthy will be to give up smoking all together, as that way you will not be inhaling the harmful chemicals in each cigarette you do smoke.
In some countries of the world you will find that your Doctor may be able to help you give up via a free Government backed scheme, so maybe it will be worth visiting your Doctor to discuss you giving up smoking if that is something you want to do, as there is a lot of help out there and available to help you give up smoking!
Remember, that the price of cigarettes is constantly increasing, and in fact in places such as the UK you will find a packet of 20 cigarettes are now at an all time high, so by giving up smoking you will be saving a fortune and will not be putting your health at great risk either!
