What You Should Know About Your eCigarettes

3

Electronic cigarettes are being marketed as a safer alternative to smoking tobacco. But just how safe are e-cigarettes? Are there any health risks? Let’s examine electric smoking and compare it to “real” smoking so you can make an intelligent decision if this may be a wise smoking alternative for you.

The most harmful aspect of smoking cigarettes is the 4,000 toxic chemicals that are inhaled when you burn tobacco. It’s the actual smoke that is causing lung cancer and respiratory disease, not the nicotine. With electronic smoking none of these 4,000 toxic chemicals are produced because there is no smoke… nothing is actually burning. No smoke means no tar, carbon monoxide, etc.

But what about the nicotine? E-cigarettes still deliver nicotine. How dangerous is that? More independent studies on the effects of nicotine by itself need to be done. Right now the health risks are still inconclusive. Nevertheless, it’s obvious that a method of delivering nicotine that doesn’t involve real smoke is going to be much safer than burning tobacco.

The FDA recently reported that traces of carcinogens where found in a sample of electronic cigarette nicotine liquid. However, these same carcinogens are also found in nicotine delivery alternatives like the patch and gum (which are both approved by the FDA). Also keep in mind that many every day foods like peanut butter contain trace levels of carcinogens. This is not to say that we should not be concerned about it. Just keep it in perspective. It’s important to remember that the dose of a particular carcinogen is an important factor in it’s toxicity. If carcinogens are present in e-cigarette vapor, it doesn’t not appear to be in high doses. Right now there is no evidence that these carcinogens are are even translated into the actual electronic cigarette vapor that is inhaled.

Are electronic cigarettes totally safe? Until more studies are done it’s probably a good idea to err on the side of caution and assume that they are not 100% safe. But when you compare it to “real” smoking there really is no comparison. One thing we know for sure is that tobacco smoking is incredibly dangerous, expensive and inconvenient. E-cigarettes give smokers an alternative that appears to be much safer and will probably save countless lives. Given a choice between the two? I think it’s a no brainer…

Buying Ecigarettes – Options & Decisions

1

You’ll notice our site has a portal from which you can purchase all kinds of products and further information. So are you ready to buy an electronic cigarette?

Great… this is definitely a healthier and cleaner alternative to conventional cigarettes or cigars. Congratulations on making a smart decision!

But there are A LOT of different types to choose from…

Here is a list of some of the more popular types of e-cigarettes and the pros and cons of each:

1. Super Cigarette. This is just a little bigger than a normal cigarette but looks very similar.

Strength: It is the most similar to a tobacco cigarette in size and feel. The battery life is pretty good and it produces a nice vapor.
Weakness: The cartridge size is a bit smaller than some other types, so you may have to replace or refill it more often.

2. The Mini Cigarette is a bit longer than the Super and basically the same diameter. However, the main difference is the mouthpiece which is tapered.

Strength: Decent vapor and battery life.
Weakness: A lot of people are saying it has an odd shape/feel and seems more like a small cigar rather than a conventional cigarette.

3. The Super Mini is basically what it sounds like… the smallest type available.

Strength: Compact and easy to carry and use.
Weakness: Because of the size, the cartridge, batteries and atomizer are also small. This causes a weaker vapor and shorter battery life.

4. Disposable e-Cigarettes. Everything is self contained. No need to change/refill cartridges, charge the battery, etc.

Strength: Some people find this model very convenient.
Weakness: Can get expensive and may seem a bit wasteful.

The Super Cigarette type is my personal favorite. It is the most similar in size and feel to a regular cigarette and produces the most robust vapor making it seem like an authentic smoking experience.

But don’t rush out and buy an electronic cigarette yet!

Not all e-cigarettes are created equal… as a matter of fact many of the early designs are prone to mechanical failure. The most common complaint is that the atomizers get clogged. When this happens the vapor quality and volume is greatly compromised. Another problem is short battery life.

The best way to avoid these problems is to educate yourself on the best models/brands. Unfortunately the majority of manufacturers are producing cheaply made inferior products. The good news is that there are a handful of reputable companies with top of the line electronic cigarettes that will give you a realistic smoking experience without all the headaches.
