How do E-Cigarettes affect Health and the Body
Electronic cigarettes and traditional cigarettes are very different, so how do they affect our health? One uses a simple formulation of safe and non-toxic VG (Vegetable Glycerine) and PG (Propylene Glycol) combined with flavouring and nicotine to deliver satisfying relief from cravings. The other uses dried tobacco leaves treated with a cocktail of chemicals and additives, which when burned release yet more harmful chemical compounds and cancer-causing carcinogens.
Traditional tobacco products are known to contain such lethal chemicals as hydrogen cyanide, formaldehyde, lead, carbon monoxide, arsenic and ammonia, as well as radioactive elements like uranium which are used to treat the soil in which tobacco is grown.
All of these chemicals have a detrimental effect on health and likely account for the fact smoking is the cause of 15% of all cancer cases in the UK.
