E-cigarettes: From A to Z for Vapers 06/28

The electronic cigarette was invented in the 1960s, but it didn't really take off until a decade ago. Currently, there are more than 250 brands of "e-cigarettes" available in all flavors and in more top-end designs.

Despite the rapid development of the industry of vaping in recent years, there are still many who have been wondering about it. If you have any questions about e-cigarettes, here are some facts for you to know:

A: What are e-cigarettes?

E-cigarettes are battery operated nicotine inhalers that consist of a rechargeable lithium battery, a cartridge called a cartomizer and an LED that lights up at the end when you puff on the e-cigarette to simulate the burn of a tobacco cigarette. The cartomizer is filled with an e-liquid that typically contains the chemical propylene glycol along with nicotine, flavoring and other additives.

The device works much like a miniature version of the smoke machines that operate behind rock bands. When you "vape" -- that's the term for puffing on an e-cig -- a heating element boils the e-liquid until it produces a vapor. A device creates the same amount of vapor no matter how hard you puff until the battery or e-liquid runs down.

B: How old are e-cigarettes?

Early designs for an electronic cigarette were drawn up in the United States in the 1960s, but Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik is acknowledged as the inventor of a viable commercial version in the early 2000s.


C: How do they work? 

A battery powers a coil that heats a liquid containing various amounts of nicotine as well as propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine, which mimic tobacco smoke when heated.

This "e-juice" can also contain flavourings and other substances.

E-cigarettes are mostly draw-activated, with the puffing releasing vapour.

They do not produce tar or carbon monoxide, two of tobacco's most noxious elements and associated with cancer and cardiovascular disease.


D: Harmful to health? 

E-cigarettes were initially touted as less damaging than tobacco, which causes around eight million deaths a year.

In 2015 public health authorities in England said best estimates showed they were 95% less harmful than tobacco.

"Even if it is difficult to quantify precisely the long-term toxicity of electronic cigarettes, there is evidence that it is significantly lower than traditional cigarettes," the French Academy of Medicine said the same year.

E: Help tobacco smokers quit?

Preserving the hand-to-mouth ritual of smoking, e-cigarettes help transform a smoker's harmful tobacco habits to a potentially less harmful e-smoking habit.

In a first of its kind study published last week in the medical journal Lancet, researchers compared e-cigarettes to nicotine patches and other smoking cessation methods and found them statistically comparable in helping smokers quit over a six-month period. For this reason, according to the researchers, the devices is promising in helping smokers quit their smoking habit.

F:Growing trends? 

Up to now, the number of vapers worldwide had leapt from seven million in 2011 to 41 million in 2018, according to leading market researcher Euromonitor International.

By comparison, there were 1.1 billion tobacco smokers on the planet in 2016, according to latest WHO figures on its website.

The largest markets for e-cigarettes are the United States by Britain, France, Germany and China.

The increase in vaping has been particularly dramatic among teenagers.
