Are E-cig healthy?

In short yes they are compared to traditional cigarette smoke with 1000+ chemicals and ingredients however with E-cigs they only contain a hand full of ingredients.

Main ingredient PG(propylene glycol) this is also used in tradtional cigarettes but in a much higher dose surprisingly it is also added to food colorings and flavorings because of its sweet flavor. The potential for long-term oral toxicity of pg is low. In one study, rats were provided with feed containing as much as 5% PG over a period of 104 weeks they showed no apparent ill effects.

VG(vegetable glycol) used to make the vapor production and to give a satisfying throat hit . This usually makes up about 20-30% of the E-juice this is pretty much the as safe as pg  it used as a substitute for people who are allergic to pg. There are some E-juices that are 100% VG.

Flavorings people use a lot of differnt flavorings most just use loran oils or alcohol based products.

Sweetener they use Ethyl Maltol(most popular), plain sugar, or sucrose.

What is a ecig

A E-cig or electronic cigarette is a vaporizing device used to vape E-juice. The E-cig is usually made up of three parts the battery the atomizer and the cart it can also sometimes be made up of two the battery and a cartomizer.

The battery is used to power the atomizer it is the long cylindrical part of a E-cig,
Battery life ranges anywhere from less the 1 hour to more then 6 hours depending on the type you buy.
The Atomizer is the heating element and IMO it is the most important part of a ecig because without a good atty(Atomizer) the life of a E-cig will be very short and the vapeing(E-cig version of smoking) experience will be less then pleasant attys should cost no more the 9 dollers if you find a site selling them for more its usually is a rip off or just plain overpriced.

The cart is used to hold the E-juice for the atty i personally do not use them i either drip or use a cartomizer more on both in a later post.

E-juice it is the flavored nicotine liquid used to vape prices for this range dramatically the best site i have found for juice is tasty vapor they have the best tasting liquid out of the sites ive tried and the prices are relatively cheap for the quality they can be found here.
