Safety


If you are new to electronic cigarettes, you are no doubt wondering if they are safe, or at least safer than traditional cigarettes.  You are not alone.  Most smokers that are looking into these new e cigs, are wondering the same thing.  Myself included.  So, in my search for more information, I will post it on this page as I find other places that have just that kind of information.

We want to know if they are safer than regular cigarettes.  From what I have found so far, the answer is a resounding YES.  Some test have been conducted by leading research facilities, and the data confirms that they are much healthier than a tobacco cig.  Since they have nicotine, they can’t be 100% safe, as nicotine itself has a bad side affect of constricting your blood vessels, and causing your blood pressure to go up.  This is proven medical fact, and can’t be disputed.

However, unlike a traditional tobacco cigarette, you can choose your nicotine level and choose to lower it over time. If your goal is to be vaping 0 nicotine e liquids, then set your mind to it and get there over time.  You determine the amount – not some preset amount put in by a tobacco company.   That alone makes this a better alternative to cigarettes, but I am getting off topic..  This page is to show the facts, and not my opinions.

Here is one post on their FAQ page:

Are e-cigarettes safe?
“While anything containing nicotine cannot be called 100% safe, evidence from numerous studies strongly suggests that they are magnitudes safer than tobacco cigarettes. Harm reduction experts can point to research supporting that switching from cigarettes to a smokefree product will reduce health risks to less than 1% of smoking traditional cigarettes – nearly the same as non-smokers. For tobacco harm reduction health professionals, it is misleading and irresponsible for public health officials to tell smokers that smokeless products, such as e-cigarettes, are “not a safe alternative to smoking” simply because they are “only” 99% safer and not 100% safe.”  to read all of their FAQ’s, go to the following page here: http://casaa.org/FAQS_ecig.html
