Nicotine= health killer?

For centuries, nicotine is closely connected with such words as cancer, death etc. Recently, it has been brought into focus because experts point out that nicotine will not directly cause damage to our body if its amount is limited to a certain level. Nicotine itself is not a health killer. Instead, it has medical value in curing diseases such as Alzheimer's and depression.

Nicotine constitutes approximately 0.6–3.0% of the dry weight of tobacco. It also has been found in edible plants including eggplants, potatoes, and tomatoes. The main harm of this chemical is that It is highly addictive, which is the reason why people feel addicted to cigarettes.

Nicotine is carcinogenic under the condition that it is highly purified and work directly at our body,which refers to blood injections. Small amount of nicotine will not Do harm to our body, but it can be harmful in high amount, which is 50-100mg. The purity and content of nicotine in cigarettes cannot reach to that standard, let alone E-cigarettes. In another way, it reminds us that when we some or vape, we should strictly control its amount to safeguard ourselves.

E-cigarettes, which is filled with e-liquid that contains nicotine, is less dangerous as traditional cigarettes. Except for addiction, it has not been proved that short or long term nicotine exposure will do harm to adults. But for vulnerable groups, for example pregnant women, It has risks for the future life of the child, diabetes, obesity etc. Traditional cigarettes contains more harmful chemicals than E-cigarettes, such as tar and carbon monoxide. E-cigarette, as a replacement of traditional cigarette is safer than traditional ones.

Nicotine itself is not a health killer and will not directly trigger cancer if we intake a small amount. Thus if we control the times of E-Cigarette, It will not do harm to us.
