What is an e-Cigarette?

Vaping_InfographicThe e-cigarette was first developed in 2003 in Beijing, China by 52 year old Han Lik. In April of 2006 e-cigarettes were introduced in Europe and in 2007 they were introduced into the U.S. The idea that Han Lik hoped to achieve was for smokers to inhale nicotine without the harmful effects of the tobacco smoke. A study done in 2008 by Health New Zealand showed that there were no questionable chemicals at toxin levels in e-cigarettes. This study also showed that e-cigarettes were between 100 and 1000 times safer than traditional cigarettes.

There are three different parts to an e-cigarette; the cartridge, the heating device, and the power source. The cartridge is the piece that holds the liquid solution containing the chemicals that are inhaled by the smoker. The heating device is the vaporizer, and the power source is normally a battery.

E-cigarettes are often thought to be a safer option for smoking than traditional cigarettes. This is a frequently debated question. E-cigarettes do not produce tobacco smoke, which makes the second-hand smoke less dangerous, the smoke produced by an e-cigarette also smells better because of chemical additives.

Many people have opted to change from traditional cigarettes to e-cigarettes, despite many countries banning them. Many people still prefer them which is why there are now over 250 different e-cigarette brands. According to a study done in February of 2015, there are 2.5 million people who smoke e-cigarettes, that’s a lot of people. Another study showed that 70% of U.S. smokers who quit, used e-cigarettes to do so. There are many, many flavors of e-cigarette cartridges on the market including flavors like; Almond Coconut Bar, Belgian Waffle, Berry Blast, Chocolate Covered Raspberries, Daiquiri, Georgia Peach, Hot Chocolate, and many more.
