Lux E-Cigarette is a completely professional website dedicated for health care of our audiences. So please help me.
There are far too many mixed messages in that territory. I agree this Lux E-Cigarette is important. You can take a look at Lux E-Cigarette magazines that have several light reading on Lux E-Cigarette Review.
There is no study that has proven e-cigarettes cause cancer, but that is because there have not been enough studies done. Therefore, there are many different opinions. In the long run, many of the carcinogens present in traditional tobacco cigarettes are not in electronic cigarettes so the risk of an electronic cigarette seems to be less than that of traditional cigarettes. Here are some views on the safety/cancer issues:
American Association of Public Health Physicians
As of April 2010, The American Association of Public Health Physicians (AAPHP) supports electronic cigarettes sales to adults, "because the possibility exists to save the lives of four million of the eight million current adult American smokers who will otherwise die of a tobacco-related illness over the next twenty years." However, the AAPHP is against sales to minors. The AAPHP recommends that the FDA reclassify the electronic cigarette as a tobacco product (as opposed to a drug/device combination).
The Food and Drug Administration
In May 2009, the Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) Division of Pharmaceutical Analysis tested the contents of 19 varieties of electronic cigarette cartridges produced by two vendors (NJoy and Smoking Everywhere). Diethylene glycol was detected in one of the cartridges manufactured by Smoking Everywhere. In addition, tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNAs), known cancer-causing agents, were detected in all of the cartridges from one brand and two of the cartridges from the other brand. The study found that the actual nicotine levels did not always correspond to the amount of nicotine the cartridges purported to contain. The analysis found traces of nicotine in some cartridges that claimed to be nicotine-free. Further concerns were raised over inconsistent amounts of nicotine delivered when drawing on the device. In July 2009, the FDA issued a press release discouraging the use of electronic cigarettes and repeating previously stated concerns that electronic cigarettes may be marketed to young people and lack appropriate health warnings.
The Electronic Cigarette Association said that the FDA testing was too "narrow to reach any valid and reliable conclusions.” Exponent, Inc., commissioned by NJOY to review the FDA's study in July 2009, objected to the FDA analysis of electronic cigarettes lacking comparisons to other FDA-approved nicotine replacement therapy products where similar levels of TSNA were detected. Exponent concluded that the FDA's study did not support the claims of potential adverse health effects from the use of electronic cigarettes. Furthermore, FDA methods "have been lambasted in journals" by some medical and health research experts who noted the potentially harmful chemicals were measured at "about one million times lower concentrations than are conceivably related to human health.”
I know of the "dangers" of nicotine poisoning, though I have been a smoker for almost 7 years, and I know my limit and when to stop smoking. Other than that, are there any other negative health effects that can happen through using an electronic cigarette? Please cite sources.
I do not have a whole lot of sources to site because I have learned my information from all kinds of places. However it really does not take some kind of person with a scientific degree to see that electronic cigarettes cannot be near as harmful as electronic cigarettes.
For one it has been proven that traditional cigarettes have over 4000 poisons and at least 46 known carcinogens, not to mention tar. On the other hand an electronic cigarette has nicotine, flavor, propylene glycol and water. Propylene glycol is used in foods like cake mix and baby food.
Here is a good source of information on electronic cigarettes.
Like you said it helps to know your limit and when to stop smoking. When you first start using an electronic cigarette there is always the matter of when is enough since it does not burn up or go out.
For the first 3 or so days I had to count out around 10 – 12 drags and put it down. Now I just seem to have one around me and I take a drag or two every 10 or 15 minutes. However most electronic cigarettes will go and kind of cut you off when you have smoked to much. The one I have will blink 10 times if you hit on it to much.
Here is where I found the electronic cigarette I am currently using.
Hope you found my answer helpful. I personally think that electronic cigarettes are awesome
