In this modern world, electric cigarette is now considered as the best alternative to real cigarettes. A Fake cigarette or also known by some as E cigarette is an aide to many people who are gradually trying to stop smoking. Some people say that it is safe for pregnant women as well as kids. But is it really true? You’ll find it out as you read the latter content of this article.
First and foremost, it is important to understand first what a “Fake cigarette” is. Basically, it’s an electronic cigarette. It’s powered by a lithium battery it can be charged and use many times. It is designed to appear like a real cigarette but it is composed of two-three parts. Commonly, the parts include battery, atomizer and the most important, the nicotine cartridge. The battery helps in lighting up the LED light. The atomizer is a mixture of water and propylene glycol which produces water-vapor or steam which appears like a smoke. As to Nicotine Cartridge, there are several levels of cartridges available in the market. Once the inhalation portion of the NC or nicotine cartridge is pulled on, the light at the tip flares and the nicotine goes into the body, just like what happens in the usual cigarette.
There’s no such thing as “tar” in fake cigarettes; only 40 compounds are being inhaled compared to more than 4000 compounds that a person may inhale from a real cigarette. Thus, there will be no cases for second-hand smoke. Because of the invention of electric cigarette, the hazard for kids as well as pregnant women who usually takes secondhand smoke in real cigarettes is now gone. The only danger it present to pregnant women is that, the moment she started using the device because the device itself has still compounds that may affect the mother and the child. Second danger is that, there are small parts which can be swallowed by kids if not properly kept.
In general, the fake cigarette is very safe and good alternative to real cigarettes. However, it can be dangerous if not properly used. So for adults, make sure that you don’t put it anywhere or within the reach of your kids to avoid problems like choking, for pregnant women, nicotine is harmful to your body and to the baby so avoid it as much as possible.
