E-Cigarettes Are Just As Dangerous As Traditional Cigarettes
Traditional cigarettes and e-cigarettes have nicotine in common. Does marketing of e-
cigarette bring confusion? Maybe it is a way of making tobacco companies richer by producing
nicotine products using new and advanced technologies. The nicotine content in vaping varies
according to the Med-Health.net website; for instance, a pack has a range of 8-20mg of nicotine,
and at least 1mg is absorbed into the body (Farsalinos et al., 2015). The amount of time taken to
inhale the vaping may lead to health effects than good as it is marketed. Nicotine is habit-
forming and automatically leads to addiction, making the body susceptible to other health issues
and risks. It affects the brain development process, which may continue to the age of up to 25
years. Pregnant mothers who smoke a cigarette and are putting the fetus at risk of abnormal
development. Nicotine affects the fetus's normal brain development, leading it not to be a
hundred percent when born. An E-cigarette contains other toxins. The American Lung
Association has listed many toxins besides nicotine found in vaping. These toxins include;
carcinogenic components such as formaldehyde and acetaldehyde, which cause lung cancer.
Hazardous metals like lead and cadmium (heavy metals). Heavy metal causes physical,
muscular, and neurological degenerative processes. Many of these toxins components are also
present in traditional cigarettes. The effects that traditional cigarette cause is the same as the ones
that e-cigarette cause.
Quitting smoking vapes may be harder, the same as a conventional cigarette. As the
markets claim that e-cigarette helps an addict quit smoking may be a different practice. People
who have switched to e-products may get medical help with quitting since they are addictive.
Additionally, e-products cause secondhand smoke, i.e., they passively affect other nearby people.
Vaping produces secondhand smoke (Villanti et al., 2017). The fact that e-cigarette contains the

same components that ordinary cigarettes have, smoke produced by e-products, causes harm to
nearby people, affecting others passively. The marketing of e-cigarette has included a range of
flavors; strawberry, pineapple, and coconut, which can give a negative impression that e-
products cannot cause harm to human health. This marketing information can motivate people of
all ages, including teenagers, to begin consuming e-products. However, starting smoking e-
products at an early age increases the possibilities of switching to abusing traditional cigarettes at
an older age later, as reported in a research study. The use of nicotine opens avenues for other
dangerous drugs. E-products impact the reward system, making the consumption of other hard
drugs like cocaine and marijuana more pleasurable.
The dangers one can acquire for using e-products are equally the same as traditional
cigarettes. E-cigarettes are similar to traditional cigarettes, only that their source of power is what
differs. However, their components are the same. Both have effects on people adjacent to
consumers of nicotine. They cause passive effects to them and may lead to addiction if the
process is repeated severally. Manufacturers market it as a tool for quitting smoking. E-cigarettes
are categorized as nicotine products. However, a big question arises, it is a tool to help quit
tobacco; why does it contain nicotine? According to the CDC reports, vaping is becoming a
popularly used drug among teens and a form of tobacco used in the States. Recently, experts
reported that vaping is linked with severe lung cancer. Like a traditional cigarette, e-cigarette
cause lung injuries and cause death. The FDA is the one to recommend whether the product is
healthy or not for society to consume. Therefore, the FDA has not locked for e-cigarettes,
meaning the e-products companies are putting anything in them, and any person can buy them.
From the fact that their compounds are similar to those in traditional cigarettes, they are not
doing well to consumers; instead, they enslave them to nicotine consumption. The FDA should

give further information and advice since consuming e-cigarette basing the marketers' arguments
may be more dangerous. In most cases, marketing information is confusing to win customers'
trust. Generally, the e-products and traditional cigarettes have the same effects on the body of
consumers.
