The science behind e-cigarettesFeature of the week
The battle between tobacco supporters and vapers rages on, even in 2016. Unfortunately, many on both sides have been accused of providing misinformation in an attempt to defraud and discredit the others’ pledge. Many claims from both sides have been proven to be untrue, consequently confusing potential smokers looking to give up tobacco by filling them with dread and reservations. These false facts can only be seen as disruptive, which in the long run prevents tobacco smokers from quitting. The false facts are also directly disruptive to the NHS, as smoking currently costs the NHS £13.9 billion a year.
Our friends over at the E Cig Review Site have set out to demonstrate the hard, scientific facts in a detailed infographic. The infographic aims to show the substantial differences in how cigarettes and e-cigarettes are made. This demonstrates the fundamental material differences, including the number of chemicals that can be found in tobacco. Perhaps the most striking information is dedicated to investigating the effects on the body of both tobacco cigarettes and e-cigarettes.
The infographic gives smokers the chance to create their own conclusions, without being bombarded by biased information from pro-vape or pro-tobacco camps. The hard facts tend to lean in the favour of electronic cigarettes when we compare them with tobacco smoking. It has been made clear by many official channels that smoking an e-cigarette is not healthy or good for you in any way. They are however, a much less dangerous alternative to tobacco based cigarettes, that can be a vital tool for smokers when looking to quit tobacco cigarettes. The impact that e-cigarettes can have on reducing tobacco related deaths shouldn’t be underestimated. It is up to the smoker themselves to decide which avenue to take.
