Oldham, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/23/2015 -- In a recent interview with vaping advocate Michael Nance, interesting statistics came to light – including his claim that vaping is "at least 94 or 96 percent safer than smoking – with the 4,000 chemicals in tobacco cigarettes versus the 4 in conventional e-cigarettes."
Typically, e-cigs operate on a basis of liquid nicotine steamed over water vapour, and this does appear much more of a simplistic prospect compared with the mass of chemicals in other cigarettes.
However, is simpler always best? In the case of smoking, this could inevitably appear the case – as not only do e-cigarettes avoid the sheer chemical count, but also avoid other issues such as second-hand smoking.
The lack of fumes emitted reduce risk to those surrounding. Furthermore, e-cigarettes often work out much more cost-effective and are available in kits for longer-term use, whilst a tobacco cigarette is expensive and disposable.
iBreathe, who are leading online retailers of premium e-cigarettes and e-liquids as well as frequent commentators in the industry, were quick to reflect on the issue: "We think the publication of figures like these really draw the right kind of positive attention e-cigarettes need," a spokesperson for the company suggested.
"E-cigarettes, when used as an alternative to tobacco smoking, are not only less harmful to the individual, but also have minimalimplications to the people around them. At the same time, the e-cigarette is still satisfying the craving for nicotine and also the routine of smoking, such as the need to hold something – a place where other preventative methods, such as gum and patches, do not suffice as well.
"In this light, e-cigarettes could be seen as a more positive alternative to smoking and really can be a constructive way to end the smoking of tobacco cigarettes."
