    What’s the harm in switching over to electronic cigarettes?
    JackRider posted:
    Hi guys! how are you all ?Today I am going to share a famous researcher's opinion.

    According to the famous researcher, Konstantinos Farsalinos..

    People are fanatically supporting e-cig universally. Moreover more than 100 liquids have been tasted worldwide in laboratories and no traces of nitrosamines, heavy metals or polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons had been found. The data from the laboratory suggests that most (almost all are in favor of having electronic cigarettes as compared to the traditional tobacco cigarettes. Moreover studying experienced users is more important because they use products more intensively than beginner smokers.

    My views..

    People mostly talk of harm reduction not complete harm elimination. There might be a very small risk from electronic cigarettes, much less than smoking a tobacco cigarette. Studies show that tobacco smoking kills around one in every three people,in contrast only on-ecig user out of a million has suffered non-fatal injury.

    Then when the health risk are such less why not switch over to the electronic cigarettes?
