Are electronic cigarettes harmful?

Scientists find it difficult to say how harmful e-cigarettes are. the first year closely follows the manufacturers of electronic cigarettes, literally for a minute does not give up trying to figure out how harmful they are to person.

Until now, only one thing is known - electronic cigarettes really do harm to our body, not quite like ordinary cigarettes, but also harm.

As in ordinary cigarettes, there is nicotine, as well as a whole range of different chemical compounds, which, together with the vapor, we inhale into our lungs.

  • Diethylene glycol, a chemical compound found in antifreeze, is extremely toxic to humans.
  • Certain types of nitrosamines are carcinogens that can potentially cause many health problems, including cancerous tumors.
  • Impurities: anabasine and myosmin - which are also extremely toxic, and according to some scientists can have an extremely detrimental effect on the human prostate gland
  • Nicotine has also appeared in almost every e-cigarette, even with all the advertising slogans and labels screaming "there is no nicotine here." Its content here ranged from 26.8 to 43.2 micrograms of nicotine / 100 ml of vapor - in other words, less than in a regular cigarette, but enough to be addictive.
