What's the best way to quit smoking?
A new study shows that e-cigarettes are almost twice as efficient as other methods in helping people quit smoking, which significantly improves their health prospects. But many people don't even know the options and benefits of e-cigarettes. Although the department of public health has concluded that e-cigarettes can reduce the risk of smoking by up to 95 percent.
smokers and non-smokers are not familiar with the difference between e-cigarettes and traditional smoking, and the harm which traditional smoking can cause. Both smoking and e-cigarettes are nicotine delivery systems. But conventional cigarettes burn tobacco, which causes thousands of chemicals to be inhaled during the release of nicotine. And it is burning and inhaling of these chemicals that cause cancer, not nicotine. Nicotine has not been linked to cancer or cardiovascular and lung disease. But it is an addictive substance that can be toxic or even life-threatening in excess. However, nicotine itself is not associated with an increase in cancer or any major disease. Nicotine also increases adrenaline, which can cause a faster heart rate and peak blood pressure, similar to the effect of drinking a cup of coffee.
E-cigarettes are tobacco-free. Instead, the liquid is made of two FDA-approved safe substances, propylene glycol, and glycerin, which form steam when heated. These vapors are much less harmful than the gases produced by burning conventional cigarettes. E-cigarettes are more effective at helping people kick the habit than patches and chewing gum. Now doctors in the UK are encouraging current smokers to switch to e-cigarettes. The American cancer society also acknowledges that modern e-cigarettes are less harmful than traditional cigarettes, but the health effects of long-term use are unclear. There are some clinicians who recommend that some smokers do not try to quit or use FDA-approved smoking cessation drugs. These people should be encouraged to switch to the least likely tobacco products, like e-cigarettes, which is more effective than continuing using combustible quitting methods. E-cigarettes are about to become a way for New Zealand's government to recommend smoking cessation. After Saudi Arabia legalized e-cigarettes, Seychelles will become the first country to lift the ban. Although the benefits of e-cigarettes are more and more known and accepted, e-cigarettes are not completely harmless. They contain nicotine, which can affect the brain development of teenagers and is definitely addictive. Therefore, it is very necessary to ban the use of e-cigarettes by minors.
Despite this, most countries are hesitant or resistant to e-cigarettes. The goal of those people who say no to vaping seems to be to prevent teenagers from smoking. But this should not be used as an excuse to ignore the enormous potential of e-cigarettes to improve the health of adult smokers. A man named Dan foster started using e-cigarettes 10 years ago. It says switching from cigarettes to e-cigarettes is not only cheaper but also appears to solve some health problems. "I used to get a really bad sinus infection every three months," says Dan Foster. "Now it's gone." More smokers reported breathing better and coughing less after using e-cigarettes. The e-liquid has different nicotine concentrations; Nicotine free to high. Dosage can be controlled according to personal preference, which can help slowly reduce nicotine dependence.
The e-cigarette is still a controversial product, and its development path is still very long. We will wait and see how it will end up.
