Pune, February 19, 2019: Yes. A growing consensus suggests that e-cigarettes confer no more than 5% of the health risks associated with smoking. This is primarily due to the fact that e-cigarettes do not involve combustion which leads to the formation of harmful toxic and cancer-causing compounds.
E-cigarette or electronic cigarette is an electronic device that stimulates the feeling of tobacco smoking. Such using of e-cigarettes is commonly known as “Vaping”. It is made of Nicotine, Propylene glycol, glycerine and flavouring agents. Modern E-cigarettes were invented in 2003 by chines pharma “Hon Lik”.
Majority of toxic chemicals found, 20+ of which have a strong connection to cause cancer, are found in regular tobacco smoking. Comparatively, e-cigarettes are better. Their long term health effects are not known. Another hazard noted is that cannabis smokers have started using e-cigarettes, a new method of inhaling cannabinoids. Smokers will get the maximum benefits if they completely quit tobacco smoking but the best option for smokers is to switch on to approved, regulated Nicotine Replacement Therapy
Less serious side effects associated with it our throat and mouth irritation, vomiting, nausea and coughing reasons for using e-cigarettes involve trying to quit smoking, Also prevent passive smoking, reduce risk or save money though many use them recreationally. Stopping smoking is the single most important step a smoker can take to improve their health.
The best way to quit is with expert face-to-face help from stop smoking services (where available) together with stop smoking aids such as nicotine replacement therapy or other pharmacotherapies. This can more than quadruple the chances of quitting successfully compared with an unaided quit attempt. It can significantly improve your lifestyle and health in ways you might not expect. Once you stop smoking, some of the benefits are immediate and some are longer term: After 20 minutes – Blood pressure and pulse rate return to normal
After 8 hours – Carbon monoxide level in the blood reduces by half and oxygen level returns to normal
After 48 hours – Carbon monoxide will be eliminated from the body. Lungs start to clear out mucus and other smoking debris. Ability to taste and smell is greatly improved
After 72 hours – Breathing becomes easier. Bronchial tubes begin to relax and energy levels increase
After 2 to 12 weeks – Your circulation improves
After 3 to 9 months – Coughs, wheezing and breathing problems improve as lung function increases by up to 10%
After 1 year – Risk of heart attack falls to about half that of a smoker
