Are Electronic Cigarettes Healthier?

There is more and more research coming out about the adverse effects of electronic cigarettes.
At first the main objection to electronic cigarettes was that they used liquid nicotine. Nicotine when put into the body causes the blood vessels to constrict. This interferes with blood flow and causes your blood pressure to suddenly increase and opens you up to stroke.
In an effort to bypass this the manufacturers of electronic cigarettes brought out mixtures that did not contain nicotine, supposedly a good thing.
Last year researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health found that three of the flavouring chemicals have adverse effects […]

Is Vaping Safe?

Many people these days in attempting to quit smoking are turning to vaping (electronic cigarettes). The question is, is it safe?
At the moment the jury is out and that is because there is no real evidence that it is safe. Some countries are banning and others are allowing vaping.
Let’s apply some logic to this habit because after all vaping is just changing the habit of smoking cigarettes to smoking electronic cigarettes.
Nicotine is I believe one of the underestimated killers of smoking. When you introduce it into your system it causes your blood vessels to constrict and therefore interferes with your […]

All forms of smoking detrimental to cardiac health

Studies suggest that smoking with waterpipes, also referred to as shisha and hookah, may be associated with even greater toxin exposure because sessions are longer and involve more and larger “puffs,” leading to smoke inhalation as much as 100 times higher than that associated with cigarette smoking.

“Electronic cigarettes may be moderately effective in helping smokers quit, but they need the same marketing restrictions as cigarettes to avoid uptake by young people and non-smokers,” said Professor Joep Perk.

The ESC advocates regulation of electronic cigarettes as a tobacco and medical product in the European Commission’s Tobacco Products Directive. Scientific evidence shows that […]

Electronic Cigarettes. Are they safe?

At the moment the jury is out about if e cigarettes are safe or not. Here’s something I’d like you to consider, but before that a little information on nicotine.

Nicotine is extremely poisonous and it is only the fact that your body heat causes a change in molecular structure that prevents it from killing you. Nicotine has been used for many years to produce some very effective pesticides so that gives you some idea of how poisonous it can be.

When you inhale nicotine it causes your blood vessels […]

Electronic cigarettes Yes or No

Electronic cigarettes are becoming more and more acceptable these days as a way to reduce or quit smoking but I have some serious concerns about the use of them.
If you look at all the cases there have been no proper studies on whether e-cigarettes are harmful or if they are beneficial. The most common factor that I can see with e-cigarettes is that they use nicotine in solution. Sure there are other mixes without nicotine but most people are using nicotine mixes.
Before working as a hypnotherapist and becoming a quit smoking expert I worked as a crop scientist worked in […]

Nicotine should be banned

I was talking to a mate of mine over the weekend and he told me of how his boss was beating smoking by using electronic cigarettes. He told me that by his boss using a nicotine liquid in an electronic cigarette she was beating the risks of cancer! I was blown away by this belief as nothing could be further from the truth.
Nicotine is extremely poisonous and has and still is being used as a pesticide. The thing about the danger of inhaling nicotine is that it causes your blood vessels to constrict; this in turn raises your blood pressure. […]

Electronic Cigarettes

The World Health Organisation has just come out with a recommendation that electronic cigarettes are harmful. In the past they have endorsed the electronic cigarette as there has not been enough evidence that the electronic cigarette is harmful.
The electronic cigarette is just another way to deliver nicotine to the body and anybody that thinks that nicotine is not harmful is deluding themselves. Nicotine is a stimulant and when it enters the body it causes the blood vessels to constrict. By doing this it increases your blood pressure and thus your chances of stroke. By constricting your blood vessels nicotine interferes […]
