Are the e-hookah xhale o2 electronic cigarettes safer than normal cigarettes?

Are the e-hookah xhale o2 electronic cigarettes safer than normal cigarettes?

Safer, not without: Elctric cigarettes provide nicotine, the substance that induces addiction and craving of smoking. Regular cigarettes contain many other chemical substances/preservatives, some are carcinogenic (causes cancer), thus they are worse than electric ones. Some e-cigarettes were found to have dangerous chemicals/carcinogens as well. Thus, a bit safer but not without risk. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Can you tell me are electronic cigarettes safe?

Can you tell me are electronic cigarettes safe?

FLAVOR = HEALTH RISK: The Health risk is in the liquid. How much safer are tobacco flavored liquids? Probably some but you are still inhaling tobacco. Non-tobacco flavors are PROBABLY safer but it’s one thing to eat strawberries, it’s quite another to inhale them. We do not know the long-term effects of inhaling strawberries. The safest liquids are flavorless. Experienced "Vapers" make their own liquids to be sure. ...Read more

Are electronic cigarettes safer than regular cigarettes?

Are electronic cigarettes safer than regular cigarettes?

Probably - Addictive: Yes, they are promoted as safer because of lack of many oxidation byproducts produced by burning tobacco ; this is true. They supply nicotine to keep the addition going but the industry has not performed any clinical trials to evaluate the pros ; cons. Thus the conclusion, through presumably reasonable, is presumptive, not tested, without known reliability ; largely exempted by dshea act 1994. ...Read more

Are electronic cigarettes safe to use to quit smoking?

Are electronic cigarettes safe to use to quit smoking?

No one knows: To my knowledge and review of this topic, no one knows since no one had done a controlled clinical trial of these products. If you use them and do not smoke, it seems intuitive it "might" help a person, but doctors cannot recommend them legally since we just do not know from accurate research data if they are safe. Would stink if in 5 years we learn they cause more heart attacks than cholesterol. ...Read more

Is electronic cigarettes safe? Will it really help me to quit smoking?Thank you.

Nobody knows: They are as safe, or as dangerous (depending on how you want to look at it) as regular cigarettes. There is little or no evidence they are any safer, and there are no published reports of their effectiveness in smoking cessation. They do somewhat reduce the "tars" you breath in, and they do reduce side-stream smoke (so they cut down on second hand smoke exposure). Nicotine patches are effective. ...Read more

Pack a day smoker. Just bought an electronic cigarette. Is this really safer? What are the risks vs traditional smoking?

Pack a day smoker. Just bought an electronic cigarette. Is this really safer? What are the risks vs traditional smoking?

Nobody really knows: It is reasonable to assume that e-cigs will prove to be safer than combustible tobacco smoking, but the reality is that, at this point, there is little or no data. The smoke clearly contains less in the way of cancer-causing tars, but nobody really knows what the other ingredients - propylene glycol, oils, flavorings, additives etc- even are, let alone what they do in the long and short-term. ...Read more

Flavorless Liquid being the safest since it's just vegetable glycerine plus or minus nicotine while tobacco smoke has 4000 to 5000 known compounds in it.

E-cigarettes.: Technically speaking, we don't really know the safety of those electronic cigarettes in the long term; newer studies are revealing evidence of harm. But what they do help with is removing your emotional and mental attachment to actual cigarettes, which could ultimately help you quit everything. As well, there seem to be fewer ingredients in them; there are 42 carcinogens in cigarettes. ...Read more

Is it possible to buy a 0mg nicotine disposable electronic cigarette (e-cig) in a store?

I have no clue: go to a store that sells electronic cigarettes and see. I am not a fan of these, although some of my colleagues think they are a healthier alternative to cigarettes. The problem is that, even without nicotine, there are unknown elements in the vapor (propylene glycol, additives, flavorings, colorings, preservatives) that have not been studied for effects when inhaled chronically. ...Read more

How safe are electronic cigarettes?

How safe are electronic cigarettes?

Why ask?: The non-nicotine e-cigarettes use water vapor to simulate smoking, but why "simulate" at all? Try sugarless gum or sugarless stick suckers if you must have the oral fixation. The e-cigarettes that provide nicotine at least do not have the tar and carbon monoxide, but the nicotine is still a potent vasoconstrictor and metabolic drug. Just say no to cigarettes and tobacco of any kind! please! ...Read more

Blu electronic cigarette bad for health?

Yes: the question isn't whether they are harmful - nicotine is addictive, causes blood vessels to constrict and reduces blood flow to heart, brain and vital organs, and is what causes the vascular problems related to smoking. There are less "tars, " but nobody knows what the propellant (propylene glycol), flavorings, preservatives and other additives do, either short-term or long-term at this point. ...Read more

My ce4 electronic cigarette won't work..Any other alternatives?

Unfortunately many: And they all involve smoking tobacco in some form. Obviously, you can buy another one. Or you can decide to not remain addicted to nicotine and do something about it. Smoking cessation programs help a lot, there are a variety of medications, including tapering doses of nicotine replacement therapy. Some people are actually able to do it with e-cigs, esp the ones that allow "dialing down" nicotine. ...Read more

Was wondering if i can't use an electronic cigarette, then what can I do?

Almost everything: else on earth,that's what you can do. There is no NEED for human beings to consume nicotine, or inhale smoke, or even inhale vapor. Am not sure what you are asking. If you are a smoker, better ways to be "safer" are to use nicotine replacement therapies, together with a smoking cessation program. There are also medications like bupropion and varenicline to help stop smoking. ...Read more

Is electronic cigarette as bad as normal cigarette i dont smoke either one of them?

E-cig vs. cigarettes: E-cigarettes do not contain as many of the toxic substances than regular cigarettes and a such are 'safer'. However, they still contain nicotine which is a highly addictive and dangerous (in high quantities) substance itself. Certain types of e-cigs also enable people to consume vastly higher quantities of nicotine than they would be able to get from cigarettes alone. ...Read more
