E-cigarettes: A better alternative?

E-cigarettes: A better alternative?

What smokers need to know about the product


The answer to the question is straightforward. For the millions of smokers looking to quit nicotine but are unable to, e-cigarettes can be a good alternative.

Despite having similar names, there are a number of differences between e-cigarettes and traditional cigarettes.

One of the key differences is that traditional cigarettes involve the burning of tobacco. This produces over 7 thousand chemicals, many of which have been identified as causes or potential causes of smoking-related diseases.

E-cigarettes, on the other hand, heats the e-liquids to a certain temperature (around 220°C for RELX product) that converts e-liquid into a mist or vapor that the user inhales. By doing so, the formation of harmful and potentially harmful constituents associated with burning such as carbon monoxide and tar. 

According to New Zealand’s Ministry of Health, there is “general agreement that vaping use exposes the user to fewer toxicants than smoking tobacco cigarettes.” (McNeill 2015; RCP 2016. Cochrane Review.)

An independent evidence report commissioned by Public Health England in 2015 also concluded that while “vaping may not be 100% safe, most of the chemicals causing smoking-related disease are absent and the chemicals which are present pose limited danger.”

Of course, we are not suggesting that vaping is harmless, but it certainly provides smokers with an alternative. At RELX, we are very clear on our e-cigarette are only meant for adult smokers or vapers. It is always best to quit nicotine entirely. And if you don’t already smoke or vape, please don’t start.
