The electronic cigarette: why such a craze ?
In France, the number of vapoteurs does not cease to progress and the increase in the price of the pack of cigarettes is not the only reason for such a craze !
Invented in 2003 by a Chinese pharmacist, Hon Lik, the electronic cigarette has often caused debate in our society. Between scientific controversies and the weight of the tobacco lobby, the detractors of vape are many ! However, the figures could not be more telling: the vapoteuse has enabled more than 7.5 million smokers to get out of their addiction !
Today, the latest scientific studies confirm the benefits of vaping to wean themselves off tobacco. The British public health agency, Public Health England even published in 2015 that the e-cigarette is 95% safer than cigarettes.
In fact, the only problem with electronic cigarettes is not the device itself, but the choice of e-liquid. Carcinogens are actually present in some liquids. These include nitrosamines which are carcinogens present in tobacco from which nicotine is extracted.
It is therefore necessary to be careful about the origin of e-liquids purchased online. Prefer to make your purchases from French ecommercants, such as eliquids from Neovapo, which are required to comply with the European guidelines of the TPD (Tobacco Product Directive).
E-liquids that meet European standards contain only minute traces, just like most other cessation aids. In comparison, the Conventional cigarettes contain over 7,000 chemical compounds, 70 of which are carcinogenic.
