Electronic cigarettes

An e-cigarette is a device that creates an aerosol that the user can inhale. The aerosol is formed by heating a liquid containing nicotine, propylene glycol and flavorings.
These devices are also referred to as electronic nicotine vaporizers (ENVs).

Types of electronic cigarettes

There are many different types of e-cigarettes on the market today. Some of them have additional features, such as flavor adjustment and heating temperature control. Others are very compact, making them easy to carry in your pocket.

How electronic cigarettes work

The main element of the ENI is a heater built inside the device. When it works, it heats the liquid to a temperature at which it turns into vapor. And the user (smoker) inhales this vapor, which contains nicotine and flavoring.

Harm level of ENI compared to traditional cigarettes

Electronic nicotine vaporizers are considered less harmful than regular cigarettes because they do not contain most of the dangerous chemicals found in tobacco smoke. However, they do contain nicotine, which is an addictive substance.
In addition, studies show that such smoking devices have their own potential health hazards.

The advantages of electronic cigarettes:

• Absence of tobacco smoke.
The device does not emit tobacco smoke, which is the main cause of many tobacco-related diseases. Instead, it vaporizes nicotine and other substances that are not harmful to the health of people around the smoker.

• The ability to choose the level of nicotine content.
The user has the option of choosing the level of nicotine in the aerosol that is comfortable for them. This allows you to gradually reduce the amount of nicotine consumed and even eliminate it completely.

• Variety of flavors.
There is a wide range of flavors and aromas available, allowing you to enjoy smoking and enjoy unusual flavor combinations.

• Saving money.
Buying an electronic nicotine vaporizer may seem expensive at first. However, in the long run, it will save you a significant amount of money as the refill liquid is much cheaper than traditional cigarettes.

• Absence of unpleasant odor.
Ordinary tobacco products leave a very unpleasant odor in the air, which, as a rule, causes discomfort to people around the smoker. Electronic devices, on the other hand, do not emit tobacco smoke, but only an aerosol, and a pleasant smelling one at that.

Disadvantages of e-cigarettes:

• Contains nicotine.
Nicotine is an extremely harmful substance that is addictive and leads to serious diseases such as cancer. Moreover, it affects brain development in adolescents, which can lead to health problems in adulthood.

• Dangerous.
Because they run on rechargeable batteries, it is possible for the ENI itself to catch fire or even explode. Also, some people may use the "wrong" liquids to refill their devices, which can lead to serious poisoning.

• Are not regulated products.
This means that manufacturers can add any substance to the liquid used to fuel these cigarettes without any restrictions, which can lead to unpredictable health consequences for ENI users.

In recent years, these electronic devices have become very popular in many countries around the world. However, they are still harmful to health, are not a safe alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes and are not recommended for use.
