Electronic Smoking

Is Electronic Smoking Safe?

electronic smokingElectronic cigars are being marketed as a safer alternative to smoking tobacco. Just how safe are e-cigars? Are there any health risks? Let’s examine electronic 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 cigars 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-cigars still deliver nicotine. How dangerous is that? More independent studies on the effects of nicotine by itself need to be done. 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 ecigar nicotine liquid. These same carcinogens are also found in nicotine delivery alternatives like the patch and gum (which are both approved by the FDA). 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 cigar 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. 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. Electric cigars 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 …

  1. If you’re really wanting to quit smoking the odds are low for success with
    these cigalike products. Most people go back to real cigarettes if they
    don’t discover the mods and EGO style cigarettes first. We all say we want
    to feel like we’re smoking a real cigarette but I’ve yet to meet anyone
    who’s used the mods and EGO styles who would ever go back to a cigarette or
    cigalike. I’ve actually never seen a sucess story from a cigalike. We
    want the vape and the nicotine as well as a variety of flavors. A lot of
    people say they want a tabacco flavor but most never use a tabacco flavor
    after trying a non tabacco flavor in their ecig. Do your homework before
    buying into these cigalikes. 

  2. There promoting this shit and will have you’re kids hooked on this shit
    there not targeting just smokers but future persons to get hooked and a GOD
    DAM DRUG WAKE THE FUCK UP

  3. If you want to quit smoking tobacco, get proper equipment like a Kanger
    e-smart that you can refill with e-juice with or without nicotine and a
    wide choice of flavours.

    The people that make and sell cig -a -likes don’t give two monkeys if
    you’re trying to quit.

  4. I enjoy e cigs more than the old fashion nasty dirty cancer sticks – I feel
    so much better now, and I enjoy the flavors instead of ashtray flavor of
    tobacco- THERE IS NO LONGER A REASON TO SMOKE the old fashion out of date
    cancer sticks

  5. ” These are NOT actors, NOT paid testimonials, but real people using the
    EverSmoke Electronic Cigarette for the first time. ”

    There are plenty of ways to get people to say exactly what you want them to
    say without giving them cash. It’s obvious these people are not actors,
    because their acting is atrocious. But getting “paid” isn’t solely
    restricted to the receipt of cash money. I have few issues with
    e-cigarettes, so long as they’re used only by informed adults. But toying
    with semantics in an attempt to fool the public into buying your dodgy
    marketing push is a very different story.

  6. E cigs have 3 main ingredients. Vegetable Glycerin or VG, Propylene Glycol
    or PG and a Nicotine Solution made from VG and PG in which you can get to
    your liking. All are USD Pharmaceutical Food Grade Safe and Kosher. PG and
    VG are in almost Everything you eat and drink on a daily basis. Yes the E
    cigs are made in china, but almost all the E-Juice/Liquid is made in the
    USA or by individuals. You can buy PG and VG at most Wal-Mart Stores. It’s
    the same thing they use in FOG MACHINES in night clubs! There is so much
    more to say, but It doesn’t have the other 3,997 ingredients that reg cigs
    have. 

  7. We would Love to have a non bias review for our 32MG Primo Flavor 800 Puff
    Soft Tip Disposable. All customers response have been very positive and
    best they ever had. Large Vapor, great flavor we guarantee it. Thanks all.
    Remember Don’t lite Be Polite!

  8. E-Cigarettes can help you stop on a physical level, but on a mental level
    it does not help. If you want to get the feeling/thought/craving of smoking
    out of your mind, you need to start within. Ecigs still makes you feel you
    have a Cig in your hands, but mentally it is not doing a damn thing.

  9. I only threw in the “Fog Machine” because I actually watched someone in
    Some Vaping video I watched and the guy just dumped his Burnt or Old juice
    in the machine and turned it on and it Vaped/Fogged away! lol Thats all.
    Thanks Polite Cig!!

  10. So I’ve gone 4 days without smoking. I feel okay. I’ve been debating
    whether I should buy an e-cigarette but I don’t even have much cravings and
    I don’t want to spend the money. So I’m kind of torn as to whether I should
    buy one or not.

  11. Funny how you stick a camera in someone face in the street and offer
    something FREE and they go all polite and praise the product. “I likeeee
    dat”. 

  12. i believe e-cig can bring more benefit than Lighted cigarettes.welcome to
    contact us e-cig manufacturer china.email ;btxsales03@baotianxiang.comc.n

  13. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, NIDA, Electronic
    cigarettes (also called e-cigarettes or electronic nicotine delivery
    systems) are designed to deliver nicotine with flavoring using vapor
    instead of smoke. Yes, they deliver nicotine to the body. Not judging
    anyone just putting the truth forward; it is too early to know to what
    degree e-cigarettes will impact a person’s health but we know plenty about
    nicotine. I encourage all to research;
