Do you already know the amazing alternative to the harmful tobacco, which is spreading around the world? We are talking about electronic cigarettes, a device that produces an inhalable flavorful vapor with nicotine to help smokers quit the habit or just replace the tobacco addiction with a better alternative.
Besides delivering nicotine, the e-cig also provides flavor and a physical sensation similar to inhaling real tobacco smoke. However, there is no tobacco, no combustion and no smoke. And, especially, there are no harmful chemicals or real poisons like ammonia.
Currently, most electronic cigarettes available for sale are reusable and rechargeable. However, you can also find completely disposable electronic cigarettes, but most of these are still being tested.
The classic model of the electronic cigarette is visually very similar to the real cigarettes – it has the same shape and a white or yellow color –, but there are a lot of models available in the market. Even despite the fact that e-cigarettes aren’t regulated in all countries, like in some parts of Europe, for instance.
The lack of regulation is such a pity when you think about all the people electronic cigarettes could be helping, since these devices already shown that they can literally save lives by avoiding the ingestion of chemical substances that harm the human health.
Nothings can convey this message in a more effective way than the words of Professor John Britton, from the Royal College of Physicians: “if all the smokers in Britain stopped smoking cigarettes and started smoking e-cigarettes, we would save 5 million deaths in people who are alive today”.
