While cigarette consumption is on the low, the use of vaping or electronic cigarettes is increasing. This has led to a national debate: is e-electronic harmful to the body or harmless? Is it healthier and better than the regular cigarette? While scientists are still studying its health effects, there are still some things we know about electronic cigarettes.

Electronic cigarettes or e-sigarett are used primarily by smokers who want to quit smoking or want nicotine without the known chemicals that cause cancer in smoking. While it is true that e-cigarettes do not require the inhalation of burnt tobacco, the e-liquid used in these devices contains highly concentrated nicotine; nicotine is an addictive and toxic chemical substance derived from tobacco. By itself, and in all its forms, nicotine poses a severe risk to the health of innocent users and spectators.

What is E-cigarette?

Electronic cigarettes (or e-cigs) are devices designed to provide a cigarette-like experience for the user. They are available in a variety of sizes and shapes. Some are shaped like cigarettes, some looks like writing pens and others have some other ways. All e-cigarettes contain a battery, a heater and an e-liquid containing nicotine. When heated, the e-liquid becomes a chemical vapor that users inhale. Since most electronic liquids contain nicotine, electronic cigarettes are sometimes classified as tobacco products.
