The electronic cigarette, also known as vape, is a device powered by a battery that simulates the experience of a common cigarette, probably with less risk to health because it contains only nicotine vapor without tar and hundreds of other harmful substances. But, as we will see, having less risk does not mean being free of risks.

The user activates the atomizer by inhaling or pressing a button, according to each device. The atomizer heats the liquid in the tank creating smoke vapor that, although it seems, is not the same as the smoke of traditional cigars. Therefore, the electronic cigarette simulates the experience of smoking a tobacco cigar, but there is no combustion and no inhalation of all the toxic substances present in tobacco.

Health benefits: 

-The toxic and carcinogenic substances contained in tobacco are avoided, both for the smoker and the people around him.

-Recovery of smell and sense of taste.

- When you stop inhaling the carbon monoxide and tar contained in the tobacco, it will progressively improve the suffocation sensation of the smoker before any physical effort and improve the lung capacity, as well as the appearance of the skin.

Economic advantages: 

-Saving money: Adding the initial equipment plus liquids, the difference in price with the traditional cigar remains abysmal.

Social advantages:

- No unpleasant odors
- It will improve your breath and the color of the teeth and fingers.
- Your skin will appreciate the change to be much more oxygenated and freer of carbon monoxide in blood.

Normally, the negative effect of electronic cigarettes is usually attributed to the fact that liquids may contain nicotine, but as we said before this is not entirely true. First of all, whether or not a liquid carries nicotine is the user's choice and obviously, if he uses it as a therapy to stop smoking, he will have to bring a minimum content of nicotine to make the treatment work. On the other hand, nicotine is the cause of addiction, but the main problem of smoking are the chemical compounds such as tar that are left in our body by combustion and, precisely, an electronic cigarette does not burn to create steam. Therefore, experts admit that having no combustion does not produce all those toxins that a conventional cigarette produces but maintain that it is still dangerous to produce "other toxic substances".
