Dangers from E-cigarettes that you should know

Nowadays, a lot of people tend to pay more attention to e-cigarettes or vaporizers because they believe that e-cigarettes are safer than normal cigarettes. In fact, the chemical compound in the e-liquid contains harmful toxins the same as regular cigarettes. Today, ACU PAY will explain to you how dangerous e-cigarettes are so that you will understand the danger of them more. 

What is an E-cigarette?

An electric cigarette is a type of smoking device that uses an electrical mechanism to generate heat and steam containing various chemicals without smoke from burning like a regular cigarette. It consists of three main components: batteries, Atomizer and e-liquid. Talking about only the part of the e-liquid that will be vaporized and entered into the body of the smoker, it contains the main chemical compounds:

  • Nicotine: It is one of the addictive substances found in both e-cigarettes and regular cigarettes. It is a substance that makes the body addicted to smoking.
  • Propylene glycol: It is a component in the substance for steam.
  • Glycerin: It is a moisture enhancer to be combined with propylene glycol. The FDA has confirmed that it is safe to use in both food and medicine, but it has not yet been confirmed how it affects the body when changing the form to steam to be inhaled or smoked, as well as glycolic propylene.
  • Flavoring Agent: It is a chemical used for general food that is safe when eaten into the body, but it has not been confirmed how it affects the body when changing to steam to be smoked or inhaled.

Dangers from E-cigarettes

  • Nicotin When entering the body, it stimulates the central nervous system, increases blood pressure, increases heart rate and respiratory rate, and increases the risk of lung cancer, respiratory diseases, oral cancer, esophageal cancer, and pancreatic cancer. In addition, nicotine also stimulates the secretion of the cortisol hormone which increases blood sugar, causing diabetes. Nicotine stimulates the increase in the number of vascular wall cells, causing stroke, and increasing the risk of heart disease and cerebrovascular disease. For pregnant women, nicotine affects the development of the fetal brain. High levels of nicotine exposure are at risk of death.
  • Propylene glycol and Glycerol/Glycerin When exposed to or inhaled, it can irritate the skin, eyes, and lungs, especially in people with chronic lung disease, asthma, and emphysema.

    In addition, many chemical compounds found in e-cigarette vapors are harmful to the body, such as heavy metals, arsenic, Formaldehyde, and Benzene. The study also found that e-cigarettes increase the risk of developing diseases such as heart disease, causing DNA changes in lung, heart, and bladder cells which increase the risk of cancer.

Is an E-cigarette more dangerous or less dangerous compared to normal cigarettes?

Electric cigarette vapor is smaller in particle size than regular cigarettes, allowing it to be inhaled into the lungs more deeply. The tiny particles attach to the lung tissue, are absorbed into the bloodstream quickly, and are difficult for the body to expel.

Electric cigarettes are still new and there is not enough research to confirm the dangers of each chemical in e-cigarettes. In case of prolonged use, there is no information on the dangers, but it does not mean that they are harmless. It must be investigated first.
