The E-Cigarette (eCig)
Smoke-Free, Tar-Free, Carbon Monoxide-Free, Odorless
The Electronic Cigarette or e-cigarette, tastes and feels just like a regular cigarette. There is a smoking sensation just like the one you get from puffing on a real cigarette. The difference though is that e-cigarettes are smoke-free, tar-free and carbon monoxide-free. No second-hand smoke is emitted and no ash trays are needed. Most tips of ecigs even light up when you inhale via a LED at the end. The e-cigarette can be enjoyed in most public areas because the smoke is water vapor.
Where a regular cigarette contains over 4,000 inherently bad chemical ingredients in it, the e-cigarette contains only nicotine, traces of flavor, and propylene glycol which is an organic additive contained in food coloring and cake mixes. The FDA considers propylene glycol safe. The vapor is a less harmful, realistic-feeling smoking alternative. And while nicotine is habit-forming, it’s the other chemicals in the cigarette that are responsible for sicknesses and diseases.
