eCigs are a touchy subject in the world of health and wellness. There are a variety of people who claim that switching to eCigs from analog cigarettes has helped them quite nicotine entirely, whereas other people say that eCigs are a preferable alternative to smoking because of the lack of tar and ash. While both groups may be right, there’s no way to actually come out and make a health claim about e Cigarettes because no real scientific testing has ever been done!
Perhaps we should issue a disclaimer at this point: AmericaneLiquidStore.com products are smoking alternative products. We make no medical claims. No medical studies or trials have been done. Any customer testimonials represent that customer’s opinion, and not a medical claim by AmericaneLiquidStore.com. Some AmericaneLiquidStore eLiquid products contain nicotine, classified by the FDA as a toxin. AmericaneLiquidStore products and accessories are intended for people of legal age.
The disclaimer above may sound a bit odd, but it’s necessary to print because many people are accustomed to making assumptions about products based on word of mouth and not solid fact. Sure, there may be a vast number of people who have successfully quit smoking with the help of electronic cigarettes, but because the FDA and other health organizations have yet to produce studies that confirm this, we’re not allowed to make the claim!
The main reason for this is stated in the latter half of our disclaimer: Some AmericaneLiquidStore eLiquid products contain nicotine, classified by the FDA as a toxin. This statement in itself is what prevents us from calling an electronic cigarette a “healthier alternative to smoking.” Because in reality, it’s not really healthier per-say. Sure it doesn’t have all the additives of a regular cigarette like tar, but it still contains nicotine: the chief ingredients that classifies cigarettes as a toxic product. So in reality, comparing an eCig and a regular cigarette in those terms is like comparing caffeine-free soda versus regular soda: it may not have caffeine, but it’s still packed with sugar!
So, if you’ve always wondered why we never say that eCigs are “healthier” or “safer,” it’s because it’s not really proven to be true. At AmericaneLiquidStore.com, we make sure that all information we give to our customers is solid fact: not word of mouth or implied. Until the FDA or other health organization publishes a study that proves eCigs are safer than regular cigarettes, we’re content with calling our American-made products “smoking alternatives.” And remember, although they might also contain nicotine, the standard by which the FDA classifies an eCig as not being healthier, they’re still without smoke, ash or tar… which at least makes an eCig more pleasant to be around!
