Electronic cigarettes are known to deliver nicotine vapor and not as smoke. This reduces the risk significantly. This delivery method is believed to be less potent than smoking tobacco the regular way. Smoking is known to cause tar deposition in the oral cavity giving the smokers that distinct discoloration of teeth.
For facts, a study reports that though e-cigarettes are a safer option, they are not safe in the absolute sense. There is no doubt a significant reduction in harm as compared to the use of regular cigarettes. But minimal risks do exist. There have been no major studies conducted recently to be completely sure of the e-device.
The way of using tobacco is the major cause for health hazards. When tobacco is burnt, smoke is produced in large quantities. When this smoke cools down, there is production of tar and a large quantity of toxic chemicals. Some of the chemicals are yet to be identified by the experts.
Short Term Health Benefits of Electronic Cigarettes
E-cigarettes are not entirely safe and healthy. The researching scientists now estimate that they do carry the smoking risks at 1-2%. This is quite minimal and can be compared to the risk involved in having a cup of coffee. Whatever be the conclusion, they are certainly safer than traditional cigarettes by far. The concept of e-smoking is based on science and they have been in use for less than 10 years.
