E-cigarettes use nicotine as a stimulant and a sedative, but that’s not the only reason they’re less addictive to smokers than traditional cigarettes.
Read moreE-cigarettes contain less nicotine than traditional tobacco cigarettes and are more effective than conventional ones in reducing smoking-related illnesses and deaths.
They are a new form of nicotine replacement therapy and a promising technology for treating many other ailments.
But e-cigarette sales have exploded over the past decade and many consumers still fear that the technology will become too addictive.
Here’s what you need to know about e-cigs.
E-cigarette manufacturers are starting to push the boundaries of what is and isn’t a tobacco product.
It can’t be used in smoking or tobacco products, and is therefore not classified as a tobacco device under the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
E-cigarettes are being marketed to people who don’t want to buy traditional cigarettes or nicotine gum.
The products are not sold as nicotine replacement products or cigarettes.
Easily purchased and easily accessible, e-liquid is widely used in the US to replace cigarettes, and it’s made with natural ingredients, such as coconut oil and cocoa butter.
But as the industry has expanded, so has the risk of creating toxic chemicals that are released into the air and water.
The FDA recently proposed a ban on the sale of e-liquids that have more than 10 parts per billion (ppb) of benzene, a toxic chemical linked to cancer and respiratory issues.
Eli Lilly, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, a drugmaker that makes the popular e-cig, is also under scrutiny for using carcinogenic ingredients in some of its e-juice.
It is also suing the FDA for banning the sale and marketing of ejuice containing the same ingredients as e-vaporizers.
Other companies are working on e-tobacco products that mimic the taste of tobacco cigarettes, such a tobacco-free version called e-pipes.
These devices use liquid nicotine as an ingredient instead of cigarettes.
Some e-products can contain nicotine and are not intended to be inhaled.
This includes e-waste products and nicotine patches, which can be inhale by people who use them regularly.
Evaluating the evidenceThe FDA has been evaluating e-nicotine products since 2014.
It says it will continue to evaluate them to see if they have the potential to help smokers quit or reduce the amount of tobacco they use.
The agency says e-mixtures are a safe way to replace tobacco cigarettes.
However, the FDA says e.cigarettes can be more harmful to users than traditional cigarette smoke.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) says that “the evidence for their efficacy is inconsistent and is insufficient to support the FDA’s proposed ban on use of e cigarette liquids.”
According to a 2014 report from the American Lung Association (ALA), e-smokers who quit smoking with an e-cart or e-flogger may be more likely to relapse to smoking if they use a nicotine-replacement product.
Alas, it’s not clear if e-capsules, which have the same nicotine levels as regular cigarettes, will actually work as a quitting aid.
The ALA says that they could cause more harm than good by making it harder for users to quit altogether.
Some companies say they have plans to test e-product ingredients to see whether they are safe and effective.
Others say they won’t test them.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says it’s considering whether to ban e-smoking in public places.
But the American Public Health Association (APHA) has already rejected the CDC’s proposed rule.
The American Lung Alliance says that e-sums are harmful to the lungs because they’re a blend of tobacco and liquid nicotine that contain chemicals known to cause cancer, including benzene and toluene.
This can also cause breathing problems and asthma attacks.
The group also says ejuices can be used to imitate the taste and taste of regular cigarettes.
The APHA has said e-gas should be banned.
