Now with a headline like that, chances are you are reading this because either you or someone you love smokes cigarettes. If that is in fact the case, it is important that you continue reading because the following article is filled with some very important information regarding the health risks associated with smoking and new developments that can help smokers avoid the common risks associated with smoking traditional cigarettes.
Recently a number of new patents have been granted for something called the Electronic Cigarette, also known as the e-cigarette or smokeless cigarette. It is a promising new invention that allows you to smoke in many of the places where smoking cigarettes is prohibited and at the same time electronic cigarettes are not known to contain the cancer causing agents found in traditional tobacco cigarettes.
The electronic cigarette works like this. It is a small battery powered device that looks, tastes and feels just like a regular cigarette. When you inhale, you activate a flow censor which releases a nicotine based water vapor, which you inhale into your lungs. While nicotine does present certain health risks, current studies have not found it to be associated with causing cancer. Instead it is the burning and inhaling of tobacco that presents most of the cancer risks associated with smoking cigarettes.
While electronic cigarettes are not smoking cessation devices, the fact that the nicotine strengths come in full, medium, light, and none, suggests an obvious benefit to those trying to wean themselves off of tobacco. Electronic cigarettes are also very popular with smokers who want to continue smoking but want to do so in places where smoking is traditionally prohibited such as bars, restaurants, the work place, or even in airports.
