The invention of e-cigarettes came as a boon in this age that has been dramatically affected by the ill-effects of smoking conventional cigarettes. While the conventional cigarettes are paper wrapped around harmful tobacco, these are electronic devices which operate with the use of a battery. These devices, when used, emit fumes that are created by the chemicals (largely nicotine) that are contained in their cartridge or refill such that the user gets the feel of smoking a real cigarette and the satisfaction of having taken a relaxing puff from the age old tobacco-cigarettes.
What stands to the greatest benefit of those who shift to their use from smoking conventional cigarettes is that these don’t make use of any fire or smoke. In fact, the smoke created by them is mere fumes formed due to nicotine that is contained in these e-cigarettes.
The Safety Aspect:
Though it cannot be said that the nicotine present in the refill cartridges of e-cigarettes is completely safe for use; one can always assert that it is far safer than the harmful ingredients contained in the conventional tobacco cigarettes. As all of us know nicotine is present even in the cups of coffee without which our day doesn’t have a start.
All in all, these e-cigarettes can always be termed as the far safer alternatives to the conventional cigarettes that contain a large amount of tobacco and cancer causing chemical substances. However, one cannot neglect the other side of this story which terms them to being not completely safe as well. This goes in relation to the recent researches that have been conducted by well-known research organizations to study the effects and ill-effects of these cigarettes.
As per the results of the recently held researches, it has been learned that the nicotine in these devices can lead to addiction in their users. This is said in special respect to the fact that these e-cigarettes are largely used by young people. Therefore, it is highly possible that they could become addicted to the nicotine used in their cartridges.
At the same time, as having too much coffee can lead to caffeine related complications in the users, the regular consumption of nicotine, even in the most minor quantities can lead one to facing the disastrous effects of it with the passage of time and age.
The Final Verdict:
After paying attention to both these aspects of this controversy, it is imperative to step out of this debate without giving a final verdict. Hence, it must be said that the advantages of using these e-cigarettes outnumber the disadvantages that these might have.
