Not exactly-the new way of lighting up may still do serious harm to your body, experts warn. FYI: "Vaping" is the same as smoking an e-cig. Electronic cigarettes can also be called "e-hookahs," "mods," "vape pens," "vapes," "tank systems," and "electronic nicotine delivery systems," or ENDS. Instead of inhaling smoke as with regular cigarettes, users of e-cigarettes inhale vaporized liquid or aerosol made up of a mixture of water and nicotine as well as other substances sometimes added for flavor and texture.
There are now more than 7, different electronic cigarette liquid flavors, says Holly Middlekauff , M. Older models that often looked like cigarettes and were called "cigalikes" likely dispensed the least amount of aerosol, says Middlekauff, but newer, fancier models "mods" allow users to change the resistance and voltage of the device.
This is bad news because, for one, they deliver a much larger volume of aerosol, says Middlekauff. Yes, e-cig vapor has a much lower content of carcinogens than old-fashioned combustible cigs do, but that's not where the e-cigarettes health risks end.
Most e-cigarette liquids still contain nicotine-an incredibly addictive substance, says Middlekauff. Once the vaporized nicotine is inhaled, it enters the bloodstream through the lungs and stimulates receptors in the brain to satisfy the ongoing need for nicotine, says Jock Lawrason, M.
Not only is it addictive, but Lawrason adds that nicotine is known to produce several reactions in our bodies, including rapid heartbeat, increased blood pressure, reduction in the oxygen supply of vital organs, blood clots, and reduced insulin levels, and may cause certain cancers on its own, no actual smoke required. And when nicotine is inhaled through electronic cigarette use? It seems to cause the same cardiac abnormalities as those seen in patients with heart disease, according to a recent study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association authored by Middlekauff.
That, and it's linked to increased inflammation of the aorta the large artery in your chest and increased levels of oxidative stress-both important markers in the development of atherosclerosis or clogged arteries , a huge risk factor for heart disease.
Some borderline good news: several e-cigarette manufacturers make models that deliver progressively lower amounts of nicotine including models with no nicotine at all. But that's only one ingredient. The flavor of the e-cig liquid you're puffing may play a part too. But they are not so dangerous as usual cigarettes because you should not forget about plenty of other very harmful substances contained in a usual cigarette, most of them are cancerogenic:.
One more not less important fact is that e-cigarettes do not produce harmful side-smoke. So, in the case with them, we cannot talk about the dangers of passive smoking. And this is quite a concern in the case with usual cigarettes. You might not worry too much about it, but e-cigarettes are incomparably more eco-friendly. Would you like to try some flavors? And now, some statistics follows that will be definitely interesting to you. If you smoke common cigarettes, you spend around USD yearly on this harmful habit.
But if you use e-cigarettes instead, you spend around USD yearly. The study followed more than men and women aged 21 to 45 who have not been diagnosed with heart disease and are not at risk for heart disease. Researchers found that the people who smoke traditional cigarettes and the 52 people who smoke both traditional and e-cigarettes were more likely to be older than those who don't smoke or only vape.
E-cigarette users, researchers found, were more likely to be younger white males. The researchers discovered that all of those who used e-cigarettes had arteries just as stiff as those who smoke traditional cigarettes.
