A team of scientists opine that if all the smokers in the world switched from cigarettes to electronic cigarettes, it would help them to save their lives. About 100 deaths per year occur because of smoking and the status is said to be more than five million worldwide.
Researchers are now hopeful that the use of electronic cigarettes can help one prevent a lot of these deaths. Some groups, however, warn that the use of e-cigarettes would normalise smoking. Only recently has e-cigarettes been found to be as effective as nicotine patches in helping smokers to quit smoking.
Instead of inhaling toxic substances that are found in tobacco, the users of e-cigarettes inhale vapurised liquid nicotine. It has been said that while an electric cigarette will help one to bring his/her consumption of tobacco to a scale down, the distribution of e-cigarette must not be over-regulated.
When kids turn teenagers, they want to try new things and the first thing that tops their list is cigarettes. Instead of trying tobacco smoking if teenagers try electric cigarettes, their possibility of running the risk of early death can be reduced.
The e-cigarette has been termed as a viable safer alternative to cigarettes for everybody.
