The Difference Between Vapes and Traditional Cigarettes
Vapes are a non-burning alternative to cigarettes. The main principle is to supply power to the control board and the atomizer through the battery, and atomize the smoke oil to generate steam smoke for consumers to use. So, what are the differences between vapes and traditional cigarettes?
Firstly, vapes do not burn, no tar, heavy metals and other substances. Cigarettes are burned to produce a variety of chemicals that can easily remain in the lungs after inhalation, producing carcinogens. For example: chronic bronchitis, emphysema and other diseases. The words that are harmful to health in smoking can also be clearly seen on ordinary cigarette packs.
Secondly, vapes do not have a distinct smell of smoke. Non-smokers can clearly feel that the partners who smoke around have obvious smoke after smoking or smoking. Sometimes we call this second-hand smoke, but vapes do not.
Thirdly, vapes can be used in many public places. Many first-tier cities are now issuing tobacco control orders, and smoking in public places is strictly prohibited. However, indoors can smoke Vapes, and in many cases, we can understand our cigarette addiction.
Structural Composition of Vape
As early as 1963, Gilbert developed a smokeless non-cigarette device that works by heating a nicotine solution and generating steam. But it has not really been put on the market. By 2004, the famous Chinese pharmacist Han Li invented the first nicotine-based electronic cigarette product, and put it into production and sales, and renamed the company to Ruyan Technology. At this point, the development of vape entered the fast lane.
Vapes are divided into large smoke and small smoke, and heavy smoke includes Rebuildable Atomizers and Tanks. Small smoke includes vape pen kits, Vape Pod System, Disposable vape. Vapes are mainly composed of atomizers, batteries, control panels, cigarette holders and outer casing structural parts. And other components.
The atomizer is an important part of the electronic cigarette, and the smoke is obtained by heating the heat wire in the atomizer to evaporate the smoke oil on the inner oil guide cotton.
Vape batteries have large smoke 18650, 18500, 18350 and 20700, etc., flat smoke is commonly used 451645,551245, the capacity is about 350mA. Pay special attention to the vape battery as a high-rate battery (taking 18650 battery as an example, 18 means that the cell diameter is 18mm, 65 is the length, and its discharge current can reach 20A).
Is Vape Harmful to The Body?
In principle, vapes can indeed avoid the hazards of many cigarettes:
In use, nicotine is atomized and absorbed without burning, so vapes do not have the largest carcinogenic tar in paper cigarettes. In addition, vapes do not produce more than 60 carcinogens in ordinary cigarettes.
Because there is no burning, there is no problem with second-hand smoke, at least the amount of second-hand smoke is greatly reduced.
According to the BBC, the commissioned investigation report of the Public Health Commission of England pointed out that the safety of Vapes is reduced by 95% compared with traditional cigarettes. The report also pointed out that vapes help smokers quit smoking. Even the government is encouraged to include vapes in the NHS’s health care system.
Vapes can use nicotine-free smoke oil or cartridges, which are not only harmless to the public, but also the flavor of candy and the taste of beverages.
But there are some doubts in the public domain:
It is safe to apply glycerin to your body or into your stomach, but it is safe to inhale your lungs after vaporization. In addition, very few people have an allergic reaction to propylene glycol.
Studies have shown that vape smoke, in addition to nicotine, formaldehyde and acetaldehyde, actually contains many chemicals, such as propylene glycol, diethylene glycol, cotinine, muscarinic, tobacco alkaloids or other ultrafine particles and volatile organic compounds. Compounds may still cause cancer or other health hazards after prolonged use. If you are addicted to vape you don’t need to be worried.
As there is no relevant laws to control, it is impossible to determine that all the smoked oils on the market are safer than traditional tobacco, and may even be mixed with other drugs such as amphetamines.
In conclusion, vapes are still an unknown area. It also takes time to test. But there is no denying the cultural wave brought by vapes.
