this coming from a person that used to think he could never quit smoking and now can see a light at the end of the cigarette tunnel
You are 100% WRONG Canada takes care of it'spublic health and they are banned for GOOD reason.
WITH ALL MY LOVE IN SAYING THIS NEVER USE THE E CIG EVER NEVER EVER NEVER
Marijuana is much harsher on the lungs than cigarettes... YET, virtually no one gets Cancer from it.... WHY? Because it KILLS Lung Cells Cancerous and
Non Cancerous alike... so the dirty polluted cells never get to survive now while the Cilia die for good Lung Cells will Regenerate from Stem Cells
through your lifetime... Dead Damaged cells = NO Cancer... New Lung Cells
Cigarettes Damage the Cells... but do NOT Kill them giving them the chance to reproduce with abnormalities = Cancer
E CIG.... Straight Nicotine into damaged cells when trying to quit smoking Nicotine encourages what? Cell division
Now while smoking sure you have the same effect.... but the cells are a mess and often die off... The Mitochondria doesn't work so great from all the
toxins... Nicotine wont cause rampant division....
Nicotine in damaged cells NOT being poisoned continually = Rampant cell division = Cancer
I personally know 5 people who used e-cigs to quit every one came down with lung cancer within a couple of years after...
Garbage... Evil Garbage... Do Not Want
I did a 5 word search that gave WAY better info for anyone who may be concerned by the safety of e cigs..I C&P the info to save time.. What do you
have to gain by TROLLING in the way you did on this thread ? This is from www.e-cigarettedirect.com...
Does nicotine cause cancer?
"Is nicotine a carcinogen? Does nicotine cause disease related to smoking?
The answer to both of these questions, NO. A carcinogen is a substance that is capable of causing cancer in humans. In a traditional cigarette,
nicotine is not the cause of cancers. It is the other 4,000 chemicals which are KNOWN carcinogens and known to cause diseases such as: cancer, lung
disease, heart disease, and many other disorders. So, it’s not the nicotine that bad for you, it’s the delivery system of the nicotine. A
carcinogen is toxic to the body and causes dangerous changes to DNA, usually increasing the rate of cell division in the body. The increase of change
from the cell division, also increase the chances for the structure of DNA to change. Sometimes, cell DNA can mutate to cause cancer, especially if
the carcinogen in constantly present.
What does nicotine do to the body and brain of a smoker?
Once nicotine is inhaled, it only takes 7 seconds to hit the brain! That makes it one of the fastest acting drugs. Research has shown that nicotine
increases the level of dopamine in the brain, similar to drugs like coc aine and heroin but to a much lesser degree. Dopamine is the reason for
feeling relaxed and calm. Concentration and memory are increased. The effects of nicotine will only last 5 minutes to 1 hour. Nicotine wears off so
quickly in the body that smokers have to continue to dose themselves frequently to maintain these effects.
Is nicotine lethal to me?
Again, nicotine is not a carcinogen. It offers an increase in dopamine levels and is not lethal when used correctly. The average cigarette has about
1 to 1.5 mg of nicotine. It would take over 50 mg of nicotine to be lethal and deadly to a human. When used correctly, nicotine is a very safe drug
that can be used frequently.
Nicotine is often been compared to caffeine in coffee. Coffee addicts want coffee for the same buzz and increased brain activity as smokers.
Why should I quit smoking and how?
That’s an easy question. You should stop smoking because of the carcinogenic properties of cigarettes. You can still receive your nicotine, which
is the sole reason smokers began smoking, but via a different delivery system and not the traditional way of cigarettes. There are many different
delivery systems out on the market today. There’s the patch, the gum, pills, and the list goes on and on. The system of the patch fails many
because it is a constant stream of nicotine into the body, very different from what smokers are used to. The only delivery system that is remotely
close to smoking a traditional cigarette is an electronic cigarette. It offers all the good and none of the bad. An electronic cigarette or e-cig is
simply a battery operated device that vaporizes a nicotine solution. They are very realistic and even have a cloud of water vapor when someone
exhales which makes it look even more like a regular cigarette. An e-cigarette allows you to inhale your nicotine without all of the harmful
carcinogens. So you can enjoy your nicotine and only your nicotine."
Cell division is NOT triggered by a Chemical such as Nicotine..
