2019 is a new year, and with this comes a chance to make it better year by improving ourselves. It is an opportunity to finish 2019 with an improved state of health that we now have just begun. We always have choices large and small.
The media continues to create a stigma of sweeping generalizations regarding the role and effectiveness of e-cigarettes, while negating the potential to change our lives. It damages public perception and fails to properly educate.
For those of you who are new to vaping, e-cigarettes are battery-powered devices that utilize vaporized liquid, “e-liquid”, to simulate the sensation of smoking. The use of e-cigarettes plays a role in reducing the health-related harm of tobacco smoking.
The number of ingredients in cigarettes exceeds five hundred. When burned, those five hundred ingredients are known to create nearly seven thousand different chemicals, about seventy of which are known in the U.S. to cause cancer.
Conversely, there are just a few ingredients in e-liquid to describe. The main ingredient of any e-liquid is vegetable glycerin (VG). It is a food grade, clear, pale or colorless, and syrupy liquid with a natural sweetness used mainly in foods, toothpaste, cosmetics, herbal remedies and medicine and it is non-toxic. The next ingredient is propylene glycol (PG). PG is found in food, cosmetics and medications to name a few. People have been using it in their asthma inhalers for years. The final ingredients are the flavor concentrates which are food grade ingredients and nicotine, if one chooses.
Most of the Premium Vapors staff were once smokers. Now we are vapers. We are here because we believe vaping works and because we want to help others as well. With a little effort and assistance, we believe that choosing harm reduction with an e-cigarette is an excellent choice to help you kick the smoking habit and to make your New Year’s Resolution a reality in 2019.
