And while it may be hard for people to stop smoking cigarettes, there now may be an alternative to smoking that can still give people the feeling of smoking but without the deadly chemicals inherent in tobacco cigarettes – actually making it much easier to quit smoking forever.
This stop smoking help, the electric cigarette, is now providing smokers with a chance to get the same experience as smoking, but without inhaling the same toxins that make tobacco cigarettes so deadly.
These electronic cigarettes not only take away the worry of the chemicals that are prevalent in regular cigarettes, but also eliminate the worries of second hand smoke experienced by non-smokers.
The ‘smoke’ that is emitted from the cigarette is actually a harmless, water-based vapor. People can ‘light up’ by simply charging their cigarette and then toke away to their hearts content.
The electric cigarette has been condemned by the FDA and a handful of other so-called medical ‘experts’ because of it’s supposed lack of testing and concerns regarding the unknown health risks it could bring about. Much of their concern has to do with the fact that these electronic cigarettes come with nicotine cartridges, which in their opinion can have negative health risks.
And while there may be a seed of truth in this opinion, the disturbing part of their condemnation of electronic cigarettes is the fact that they don’t seem to care that the device could be a safer alternative to smoking tobacco that will not only prevent people from contracting illnesses from second hand smoke, but also save the lives of many smokers themselves.
There are at least thousands, and possibly even millions of people all over the world who have tried other stop smoking aids such as nicotine patches, nicotine gum, and other nicotine related products in an attempt to ‘kick the habit’.
Now the FDA and a few of their backers want to condemn this product because of the effects that the nicotine can have on someone’s health. But you have to ask yourself, if a person is going to smoke anyway, wouldn’t the nicotine alone have to be safer than all the deadly carcinogens found in cigarettes?
And at any rate, had they done their homework, these agencies would have found that the electric cigarette can be ordered through a number of companies without nicotine, if one so chooses. It will be interesting to hear what their excuse will be for condemning the product after taking this fact into account.
It simply doesn’t make sense that an entity put in place to protect us, such as the FDA, would condemn a product that not only has no cancer causing chemicals, but also doesn’t produce any harmful second hand smoke. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to realize that this smoking alternative has to be safer than smoking cigarettes. Apparently the FDA needs a little education on this topic themselves.
