Electronic Cigarettes

Whoever’s clued into international gossip, must have read how a certain Hollywood beauty has currently taken to smoking electronic cigarettes.

What exactly IS an electronic cigarette??

An electronic cigarette, e-cigarette or personal vaporizer, is a battery-powered device that provides inhaled doses of nicotine by way of a vaporized solution. It is an alternative to smoked tobacco products, such as cigarettes, cigars, or pipes.

Most electronic cigarettes are reusable devices with replaceable and refillable parts.

Claims have been made by e-cigarette companies saying these are an healthier option, they have environmentally friendlier since there isn’t any actual ‘burning’ involved, and that it’s a good aid for smokers wanting to quit.

However, e cigarettes have been banned in numerous countries like Australia, Canada, Singapore and are currently available only online.

Their exact health impacts are yet to be tested and proven.

The popular suggestion though is, quit smoking entirely. This device might reduce intake of a few harmful chemicals, but nicotine by itself is no saint either!
So don’t rush into buying this gadget just yet. Wait a while to read official health department reports.
