The Difference Between Cigarette Smoke And Vapor Vapor On My Body?
, I want to ask..
Hello Pandu, Thank you for the question.
1. Cigarettes contain nicotine which has the effect of suppressing appetite. Nicotine activates the central nervous system which suppresses appetite. For this reason, if you have a smoking habit, your appetite will decrease. Electric cigarette (vaporizer / vape) is claimed to be a way to overcome smoking. The main content of e-cigarettes is:
nicotine, which is found in different concentrations
propylene glycol and glycerol, can turn into toxic compounds when heated which can cause cancer
diacetyl, this substance can cause damage to the small respiratory tract (bronchioles)
Electric cigarettes have three components, namely batteries, heating elements, and tubes for filling liquids (cartridges). Electric cigarettes work by converting liquid nicotine into steam. Users will breathe in the vapors produced from this combustion process. Although the use of e-cigarettes is claimed to help stop smoking, it does not mean that it is better than tobacco cigarettes. Increased appetite may be caused by the use of nicotine in smaller amounts in the e-cigarette you use.
2. Electric cigarette vapors that press on skin or hair do not contain toxins.
3. Researchers are still conducting research to look for the benefits of nicotine especially in the treatment of certain medical conditions such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, ADHD. The negative effect of nicotine is to cause an increase in blood pressure, constriction of blood vessels, cancer, especially lung cancer, digestive disorders, fertility problems, miscarriages and pregnancy complications, and others.
The best step to stop smoking is to not smoke at all. Electric cigarettes seem safer but these claims still require further research to monitor their health impacts.
Hopefully this information is useful.
