Electronic cigarettes are not bad for you. We’re not saying they’re good for you like eating your broccoli and carrots are, either.
While nicotine is an addictive stimulant and a vasoconstrictor, the idea is that electronic cigarettes remove what makes nicotine addiction so deadly. Nicotine itself isn’t cancer causing or harmful to your lungs but like any stimulant, caffeine or otherwise, too much can be problematic. If you’re already a smoker, you only have everything to gain by switching to e-cigs- clearing your lungs, the smell from your home and person and removing the intake of thousands of carcinogens found in cigarettes daily.
E-cigarettes seek to lessen the number of people who die because of lung cancer and second hand smoke every year, not by trying to get people to quit but by offering a non-harmful alternative. Through the usage of this simple battery operated device, smokers can keep their nicotine habit without harming themselves or the people around them.
