Today, let’s talk about the difference between cigarettes and e-cigarettes, and about nicotine, which you’re not familiar with either.
A lot of people who are new to vaping or who want to try vaping are very concerned about nicotine and trying to figure out the difference between liquid and cigarette nicotine. In fact, as a new person, want to know how many cigarettes he smoked the equivalent of cigarette oil, this intention is not wrong, but also a responsible reflection of their health.
Once you get started, you will know that this analogy is meaningless, because although the biggest thing in common between e-cigarettes and cigarettes is nicotine, but the biggest difference is that e-cigarettes do not contain the other 2000 kinds of toxic and harmful substances in cigarettes, besides nicotine, and cigarettes are not the most harmful to human health, carcinogenic nicotine. It’s tar and carbon monoxide, so it doesn’t make sense.
However, the impact of nicotine on the human body can not be ignored, even if there is no other harmful ingredients, it can not become an excuse for nicotine abuse, according to their own actual situation reasonable choice of nicotine concentration, this article talks about the relevant knowledge of nicotine.
Nicotine, also known as nicotine, is an alkaloid found in the Nightshade family (Solanum) and an important ingredient in tobacco. Nicotine is addictive or dependent (one of the hardest addictions to break). People often find it difficult to control themselves. Repeated use of nicotine also increases heart speed and increases blood pressure and decreases appetite. In large doses, nicotine can cause vomiting and nausea, and in severe cases, death. Tobacco often contains nicotine, which prevents many smokers from kicking the habit.
When nicotine enters the body, it travels through the blood and crosses the blood-brain barrier, taking an average of seven seconds to reach the brain after being inhaled. Nicotine enters the body more efficiently. The liver is the main organ that metabolizes nicotine. Nicotine increases the amount of neurotransmitters and dopamine in the brain, resulting in feelings of happiness and relaxation, which can lead to addiction.
Nicotine, which has been associated with death and cancer for nearly a century, is getting a lot of new attention, and many experts are defending its name, arguing that the nicotine in cigarettes is not much harm, and that the real cancer killers are tar and carbon monoxide.
When the masses smoke, there is no way to separate nicotine from tar, carbon monoxide and other harmful substances, and it is the nicotine that really makes people addicted. Who would smoke specifically to absorb tar and carbon monoxide? So even if nicotine doesn’t cause cancer, it’s at least complicit in carcinogens like tar and carbon monoxide, and it’s definitely involved in people getting cancer from smoking.
The smoke produced by burning cigarettes contains at least 2,000 harmful compounds that have a variety of biological effects, including:
1. Inflammatory stimulation of respiratory mucosa: such as aldehydes and alkenes.
2. Toxic effects on cells: such as nitrile, heavy metal elements.
3. Make people produce addictive effects: such as nicotine and other alkaloids.
4. Carcinogenic effect on human body: such as benzopyrene and cadmium of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
5. It can promote cancer in human body, such as phenolic compounds.
6. Loss of oxygen-charging capacity of red blood cells: carbon monoxide.
In China, the relevant knowledge of tobacco and nicotine is still very poor, so that the vast majority of people think that the most harmful cigarette is nicotine, but ignore the “tar” and “carbon monoxide” these two real “health killers”.
But not because of the abuse of electronic cigarettes, after all, nicotine inhalation will also cause poisoning, so please have control, once in the process of using electronic cigarettes occurred “dizziness”, “chest tightness”, “nausea” and other reactions, on behalf of nicotine intake is excessive, then to stop the use of electronic cigarettes, ventilation, breathing fresh air, drink more water. If the symptoms are more serious, prompt medical attention is needed.
Another point to note is that it is necessary to properly keep tobacco oil, if it is eaten by infants or pets, it will cause very serious consequences.
E-cigarette is a new product that is fundamentally different from cigarette. Originally it was invented for “quitting smoking”, but today it has jumped out of the category of “quitting smoking” and formed a new vape culture. Although the product still carries the function of “cigarette replacement”, it has changed from a simple “cigarette replacement product” — e-cigarette into a unique new field of fashion and health — Vape. I want you to understand nicotine correctly, and I want you to understand e-cigarettes correctly.
Whether smoking or playing, the attitude of exploration and knowledge is worthy of affirmation. No matter users, ordinary people or gamers, please understand e-cigarettes correctly.
