  • E-cigarettes and vapes can help you quit smoking for good

    NHS UK have published an interesting article which states that "E-cigarettes and vapes can help you quit smoking for good".

    They go on to say that an estimated 2.9 million adults in the UK alone are now using e-cigarettes as a way to give up smoking.

    Whilst they have said that E-cigarettes aren't completely risk-free, it is infact 95% less harmful than smoking cigarettes.

    It is important to remember that it is not necessarily the nicotine that is harmful to you. There are over 4,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke, of which more than 70 are known to cause cancer, these are called carcinogens.

    These are some of the chemicals used in tobacco

    • Nicotine
    • Hydrogen cyanide

    • Ammonia
    • Radioactive elements, such as uranium (see below)
    • Benzene
    • Carbon monoxide
    • Nitrosamines
    • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)

    Whilst many of these chemicals cause cancer, some also can cause heart disease, lung disease, or other serious health problems.
