All commercial nicotine concentration ratings are usually printed on liquid containers or cartridge packaging, what is regulated per country.
The bases of the Flavors and Nicotine are dissolved in hygroscopic components, which turn the water in the solution into a smoke-like vapor when heated.
Commonly used hygroscopic components are product as:
- 1-â€śPropylene Glycolâ€ť [PG]
- 2-â€śVegetable Glycerinâ€ť [VG]

A pharmaceutical example of Propylene Glycol implementation are Asthma Inhalers and Nebulizers that from 1951.

Electronic Cigarette LIQUIDS, Electronic Cigarette LIQUIDS,
The health effects of using E-Cigs are currently unknown. Many studies all over the world regarding the long-term health effects of nicotine vapor, both inhaled directly and second hand [passive smoking] are currently in progressâ€¦!
Food and Drug Administration about E-Cigs after some tests
In one of the cartridges manufactured by Smoking Everywhere was Diethylene glycol detectedâ€¦!
Tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNAs), known cancer-causing agents, were detected in all the cartridges from one brand and two of the cartridges from the other brand!

The study reveals further that the actual nicotine levels did not always correspond to the amount of nicotine levels printed on the cartridges, and in some cartridges that claimed to be nicotine-free the analysis found traces of nicotine! Further concerns were raised over inconsistent amounts of nicotine delivered when drawing on the device.
The FDA issued a press release in July 2009 to discouraging the use of electronic cigarettes and repeating with that their previously stated concerns that electronic cigarettes may be marketed to young people and the lack appropriate health warnings.
The Electronic Cigarette Association answered form their side that the FDA testing was too narrow to reach any valid and reliable conclusions.
Exponent, Inc., commissioned by E-Cigs manufacturer NJOY to review the FDA’s study from July 2009, objected to the FDA analysis of electronic cigarettes lacking comparisons to other FDA-approved nicotine replacement products where similar TSNA levels were detected.
Exponent concluded that the FDA’s study did not support the claims of potential adverse health effects from the use of electronic cigarettes.
American Association of Public Health Physicians (AAPHP)not against E-Cigs
A Tobacco Cigarette smoker can reduce his risk of future tobacco-related death by 98% or even better by switching to a low risk smokeless tobacco product.
He or she could cut that risk by 100% or better by switching to a nicotine-only delivery product like one of the pharmaceutical products or E-Cigs. Experience suggests that E-Cigs may be more acceptable to smokers than the currently available pharmaceutical alternatives.
A smoker can secure almost all the health benefits of quitting if he transitions to an E-Cigs.
The AAPHP recommends further that the FDA reclassify the electronic cigarette as a tobacco product and believes that the effects of second-hand smoke (passive smoke) will be significantly decreased using E-Cigs,
I have named this article 004, in the group STOP SMOKING Help “Electronic Cigarette LIQUIDS Overview”,and I think if all users of the Electronic Cigarette LIQUIDS have knowledge of the diversity and nature of Liquids that exist, they better know what still the ricks are for their health…, if some user like to be informed more they can read further here after.
