What are the differences between vaping and smoking?
Since they were patented in 2003, e-cigarettes have been the subject of much false information. To clarify the issue we are going to weigh both options, compare them and see what substances are derived from both options. The aim of this new SinHumo blog post is to fight the misinformation surrounding vaping shop and make society see the advantages it has over conventional cigarette smoking.
Composition of tobacco cigarette
Due to combustion, the smoke produced contains small solid particles and, in addition, in this process new substances such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO) are created, both very harmful to our body.
If you think that the conventional cigarette only has tobacco, you are very wrong. It is showing that they contain more than 4,000 chemicals, including 40 classified as carcinogenic. We leave you a sample of the substances they contain:
Ammonia: Widely used as a cleaning substance
Arsenic: Used in rat poisons.
Butane: Yes, the same gas as domestic gas cylinders.
Cyanide: A powerful poison.
Methane: Used by NASA as fuel for its rockets.
Cadmium: An element present in your car battery.
Carbon monoxide: Gas that in high concentration is deadly and in low doses makes oxygenation of cells difficult.
Tar: Perhaps the most well-known element of tobacco. Also used to create asphalt for roads.
Benzene and Radon: They are carcinogenic chemicals. They are already banned as components of household goods.
Nicotine: It is responsible for making tobacco so addictive.
