Dr. Weeks’ Comment: When the big cigarette companies are mad at you, you KNOW you are doing something right. We have been promoting ecigarettes for smokers for the past 4 years and patients LOVE them.
Are Electronic Cigarettes Healthy? A Way To Smoke Nicotine Without Tobacco?
(ADP) — It’s what many smokers are calling a “miracle technological breakthrough.” But, could making the switch to electronic cigarettes really change your life?
May 19, 2012
The use of electronic cigarettes has skyrocketed over the past 12 months. Creators and product users now say you can enjoy a cheaper healthier cigarette without the bad smells, second-hand smoke, or cancer causing chemicals. With these huge claims, we decided to investigate e-cigarette use amongst users.
After providing multiple electronic cigarette kits to our test group, we received shocking results. First we found that product users did actually save money. The claim from e-cigarette manufactures is that smokers who make the switch can save over $1,000 per year. We found that the actual cost of smoking for our test group was nearly cut in half.
Our group was pleased to find that, as promised, the product truly is odorless. This was a huge winning point amongst the women as some realized they would no longer have to worry about the affects tobacco smoke has on their clothes and hair. But what was most exciting amongst our test group was that many felt the product didn’t seem to have an adverse affect on their health. In fact many of our testers reported being able to “breath more easily” within one day of using the product. Others simply stated that they just “overall felt better.” This is because what is “smoked” when taking a drag on an e-cigarette is mainly a water-based vapor consisting of nicotine.
Many doctors are now recommending the product and Dr. Panariello told us that with E-Cigs there is virtually no risk of getting cancer. These conclusions come from studies which show that nicotine is about as equally harmful to your health as caffeine. These studies also show that the real harm in traditional cigarettes comes from the tobacco smoke and the hundreds of additional added chemicals.
With the lack of second-hand smoke, smokers are excited to find that many businesses allow them to smoke e-cigarettes indoors. Many have also received special permission from their employers to smoke e-cigarettes in the work place.
In the United States, over 500,000 smokers have already switched to electronic cigarettes. Sara Silk is one of the many whose life has dramatically changed thanks to the product. She informed us that she “smoked almost two packs a day for 16 years,” and she thought that she would never quit. To her surprise though, when she tried electronic cigarettes she was able to “quit smoking regular cigarettes two days later.” Sara told us, “I recommend this product to anyone who plans on quitting. Unlike gum or patches you actually feel like you’re still smoking, which makes the transition so much easier… I feel like the chains of my addiction have finally been broken for good.”
We have received a number of positive testimonials such as this one and we feel that as more and more Americans are made aware of this new technology, that more and more smokers will make the switch.
Electronic cigarettes can be used with real nicotine cartridges or with zero nicotine to facilitate the ease of quitting for users desiring to do so. Our interviews and research have found that the electronic cigarette will quickly become the #1 choice for smokers looking to lead a healthier lifestyle. With the high cost of smoking traditional cigarettes, and with the danger cigarettes bring to your health, we give our recommendation and “thumbs up” to anyone looking to give these devices a try.
