Case Study: My Experience With Liquids

Is Using Eliquids Safer Than Cigarettes And Are They Effective In Substituting The Use Of Cigarettes.

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. 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 groups that contend that the e-liquid is more harmful than the cigarettes implying that it has more hazardous effect on human body than smoking 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. 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. Our bodies were designed to inhale oxygen, and thus anything different from it when inhaled may have effects on our bodies. 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.

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. Nicotine causes vasoconstriction thus inducing tingling sensations, headaches, and blood circulation problems such as high blood pressure. Nicotine is however useful in fighting depression and also improves concentration and medical doctors also recommend it to patients suffering from different disorders including 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. Different e-liquid brands have different flavors added. Some e-liquid brands also contain added ingredients such as distilled water which is added to make it wick and vodka or pure grain alcohol to improve throat hit.
