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

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

Blu electronic cigarette bad for health?

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

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

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'.

Can any doc tell me what's the best electronic cigarette?

Can any doc tell me what's the best electronic cigarette?

How about none of: them? The reality is that the makers of these products have published NO results of any studies they have done, and because they have not been regulated, they don't have to. We do not know the safety of the oil used as a propellant when inhaled, or the flavorings, additives and preservatives when volatilized and inhaled. There is formaldehyde in the vapor, a carcinogen. So nobody really knows. ...Read more

No: the only area where electronic cigarettes may be somewhat safer is in it the reduced amount of "tars" - complex hydrocarbons produced by burning of the tobacco- found in them. However, they still have many irritants, and many of them (like propylene glycol, used as the propellant) have unknown effects when volatilized, which is true also of the flavorings, colorings, preservatives etc in them. ...Read more
