They say smoking will kill you, but is smoking really that bad? Studies show that the main problem with traditional tobacco cigarettes is that you are burning something. If you were to take the grass that grows on your lawn and burn it with the same cigarette paper and filter for 20 years, you will develop the same symptoms as the tobacco. Now grass doesn't contain nicotine so you would probably kick that habit fast but just to put it in perspective. 

Now the great news about electronic cigarettes is that they actually don't burn tobacco. They slowly heat up the ejuice that is inside and produce vapor not smoke. Now this doesn't only benefit the user but also the people around the smoker. Since the vapor doesn't produce second hand smoke like the traditional cigarette that you burn.

Smoking and its Chemicals:

When burning a traditional tobacco cigarette the process itself there are lots of chemicals that are referred to as "carcinogens" some have connections to causing cancer. Here is a list of some of them

  • Nicotine – This is the main addictive component that gives the user to want more. When someone mentions they are addicted to cigarettes, they are drawn to the nicotine it contains.

  • Hydrogen Cyanide

  • Formaldehyde

  • Lead

  • Arsenic

  • Ammonia

  • Benzene

  • Carbon Monoxide

  • Nitrosamines

  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons

Long term tobacco smoking studies show that these carcinogens lead to serious health conditions such as cancer, heart disease and lung disease. These chemicals are not found during the process of making the cigarettes, when you light the cigarette with a lighter, the combustion of the tobacco leaf starts this chemical reaction that creates some of these powerful chemicals (, 2017).

Vaping and its Chemicals

The process of vaping removes the need of combustion, this in turn removes a ton of the harmful chemicals in traditional tobacco smoking. Studies have shown that the vapor produced in electronic cigarettes are very different from their predecessors. Most of the harmful carcinogens found in cigarettes are not found in the vapor of an electric cigarette. Here are the chemicals found in an electronic cigarette.

  • Nicotine – This is the main addictive component that gives the user to want more. When someone mentions they are addicted to vaping, they are drawn to the nicotine it contains.

  • Propylene Glycol (Vegetable oil)

  • Vegetable Glycerol

  • Acetaldehyde

  • Nitrosamines

Most other chemicals found are mainly for flavoring and the process of making the flavor. For the most part, studies have shown that they are safe to consume and come in various over the counter treats we already buy. There is still more research to be done on the long term effects of electronic cigarettes because these flavors are vaporized instead of ingested.

what are electronic cigarettes?

These last few years, big tobacco has been trying to produce products that bake your cigarette slowly like an oven instead of straight burning it. Maybe closer to 2020 they will make a traditional cigarette that is not as dangerous. But as humans we crave something that isn't as good for us otherwise companies like McDonald's wouldn't exist! So while big tobacco makes these new devices, enjoy the sweet sensation of an Eonsmoke electric cigarette today!
