As a substitute for cigarettes, the advantage of 'capturing' flavor of electronic cigarettes has won more and more people's favor. However, as a new type of product, electronic cigarettes face many uncertainties. For example, the concept and evaluation of e-cigarettes are not uniform, the product standards are not uniform, and the behavior of e-cigarettes is not standardized, all of which need clarification, unification and regulation. When it comes to vaping, here are some basics of popular science to give you an idea of ​​the nature of vaping.

Are e-cigarettes cigarettes?

E-cigarettes Vape and exhale vapor. Except for the possibility of nicotine, it is a completely different category than cigarettes.

The concept of electronic cigarettes:

An e-cigarette is an electronic cigarette product that converts liquid e-liquid into vapor through atomization. It is different from IQOS, which does not burn at low temperatures, so the two are actually different types.

The composition of electronic cigarettes:

E-cigarette devices are processors that atomize liquids through high temperatures. The composition of the e-liquid is key. E-liquids consist of nicotine, flavors and fragrances, and PG/VG.

PG (Propylene Glycol): FDA defines it as 'generally safe for humans'. It is the carrier of flavors in e-liquids and can enhance the taste of e-liquids. When heated, a small amount of mist is produced and hits the throat. VG (Vegetable Glycerin or Glycerin): A raw material widely used in daily life. VG is responsible for creating the 'fog' in the e-liquid. Essence: Food-grade essence is used, which basically has no effect on the human body.

Are e-cigarettes harmful? Based on the above working principle and composition introduction, we conclude that nicotine is harmful to e-cigarettes. Nicotine is the main reason we become addicted to smoking. When we smoke, carbon monoxide and tar are harmful to the human body, and these two components of electronic cigarettes are not available and will not be produced during operation. But nicotine is not safe. Short-term high-dose nicotine (above 50MG) is enough to cause vomiting, nausea, and even life-threatening. However, as long as the dose is within a safe range, nicotine has little effect on the human body.

Do e-cigarettes produce harmful substances?

The pyrolysis reaction of organic matter requires a temperature of about 700-800 degrees, and the direct combustion temperature of cigarettes is above 800 degrees. Therefore, new harmful substances are formed when smoking. The high temperature of mainstream electronic cigarettes is between 300-400 degrees, which is far behind. Conditions for fission to occur.

Qualified electronic cigarettes can not only help smokers quit smoking, but also make cigarette life healthier.
