Electronic cigarettes and their safety is a topic that is really being debated all across the globe these days. For what do we really know about these electronic cigarettes – and how trustworthy is our information?
Retailers that are selling these electronic cigarettes are claiming that they are very safe indeed – in fact they should be so safe that it’s practically harmless to smoke them. Other studies show that the electronic cigarettes have a high score on certain toxic levels, thus making them as dangerous as regular cigarettes. These studies, however, is paid for by people that stand to lose a lot of market share if the electronic cigarette catches on – or at least that’s what the current electronic cigarette manufacturers say.
We have found what we at ulsafetytour believe to be a trustworthy source. If you look at http://www.super-smoke.com/da/rygestop you can read more info on the electronic cigarette. The site is in Danish, but if you run it through Google Translate, most of the information is quite comprehensible to English-speakers.
Anyways, the takeaway from this site is that we are in fact not quite entirely sure about the electronic cigarette. Yes, it is safer than regular cigarettes, but whether it’s entirely unsafe is still too soon to say. These studies take many years to make, and since the electronic cigarette has only been around for a few years, you cannot really tell.
And then there’s the nicotine. Nicotine in it’s pure form is very poisonous, so there must be some kind of risk exposing it to your body, whether it’s in the form of an cigarette, a chewing gum or an electronic cigarette – this you can also read more about on the website www.super-smoke.com, the same site that we mentioned before.
Our judgment is clear – if you can quit smoking entirely that’ll be the best, but it’s really hard and if it’s not possible for you then the electronic cigarette will beat the regular every day of the week.
