Have you ever tried electronic cigarettes or are thinking about having one. If yes, then you must have surely heard about a lot of myths and assumptions that people have regarding electronic cigarettes. The e-cigarettes are very popular as a better alternative for tobacco cigarettes and are in trend among youth and other users. However, when it comes to usage, there are a lot of myths about the same which makes the user hesitant about whether they should use it or not. Let’s have a look at some of the basic myths about electronic cigarettes and check whether they are safe to consume and what type of people can safely consume it.
One of the common myths people must have heard about electronic cigarettes is that they are regulated. However, the truth is completely the opposite. E-cigarette manufacturers are not required to disclose the chemicals and other products they use, due to which it is impossible to know whether the chemical or other product used in the e-cigarette is good or bad for us. However, there is a possibility that the e-cigarettes will be regulated in the future.
They do not contain any chemical or substance like tobacco is another myth that people often come across. Electronic cigarettes use a liquid to form vapors, that the user exhales like smoke from cigarettes. The liquid is nothing but nicotine extract in the form of liquid that you also find in the tobacco. Therefore, it is not true that what you inhale from both is different. The only major difference between the two is that the level of nicotine in the e-cigarette is much lower than the level of a cigarette or cigar.
People often think that since e-cigarettes are an alternative to cigarettes, they will not cause any addiction. What people do not know is that the liquid used in it is also made from nicotine that you consume when you inhale a cigarette. Therefore, you are inhaling nicotine at lower levels in an e-cigarette, due to which it can become a habit in people. If you are going to try e-cigarettes thinking that it will help you in removing the habit of smoking cigarettes, then you are totally wrong. You can definitely use it as an alternative where the levels of nicotine intake are lower but cannot use it to leave the smoking habit.
They are safe for people or kids of lower age is another thing many people would have often heard of. Just to make it clear, the e-cigarette is not meant for minors or kids as it will have the same effect on them when they smoke a cigarette. No matter what is published on the packing or the promo, the product is not meant for kids and underage individuals. The alternative to smoking is only produced and made for adults and individuals who are already smoking. Although a big trend for the same can be seen in individuals, it should be kept away from underage kids.
These are some of the basic myths that you will often come across when you try to use an e-cigarette or thinking about using one in the future. Make sure to understand that it is not a replacement to smoking neither does it help to avoid one. Therefore, do not use it for the wrong reason as it also works on a liquid made from nicotine.
