E-Cigs Gain Rapid Popularity Among Bollywood Celebs

The positive effect of electronic cigarette india is making it popular not only among the Hollywood celebrities but also among the celebrities of Bollywood. Recently, Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor supported in favor of e cigs.

There is a huge surge on internet searches on the popularity of e cigarettes among smokers. The positive effects of electronic cigarettes are making it famous not only among Hollywood celebrities but also among Bollywood celebrities. Recently, the Bollywood celebrity Sonam Kapoor posted on a micro blogging website in favor of electronic cigarettes. In recent tweets to her fans on her twitter feed, Sonam said “Smoking is seriously not good! There are electric cigs available now. A lot of my friends are using it.” When interviews recently for a leading daily magazine, she said “I know of people who smoke e-ciggies to give up smoking or cut down on the number of cigarettes per day. I want to do everything possible to tell people how bad this habit is. I think electric cigarettes are good because they create the effect and feel of smoking without actually having to put nicotine and tobacco in your body.” in the interview.

E cigarette reviews explain that electric cigarette is a device that does not contain tobacco. And an e cig is free from ash, tar and smoke. Also an electronic cigarette operates on a power source and contains only nicotine. Smokers can satisfy the cravings for nicotine without inhaling more than 4000 harmful and toxic chemicals. An E cigarette is composed of a cartridge that contains nicotine liquid and a battery that warms the e liquid when a smoker takes a puff. A smoker has to simply take the battery and screw into the cartridge and the e cig is ready. A person has to just take the puff and to have the best e cigarette smoking experience in a better way.

One smoker on the sets from one of Sonam Kapoors movie’s was overheard saying “I smoked 2+ packs a day for 15 years and was finally able to quit smoking with ease using this device. To me, there is no doubt that these are a safer alternative to traditional cigarettes. I know many others personally who have struggled for many years to quit as well and have managed to quit smoking with electronic cigarettes. For many, quitting is not even the intention, but the e-cigarette works as a perfect alternative.”

World No Tobacco Day 2012: 10 facts about passive smoking

Second-hand or passive smoking is almost as dangerous as active smoking. According to WHO, passive smoking causes 600,000 deaths every year. Here are 10 facts you should know about about passive smoking:

  1. Second-hand smoke is the smoke that fills restaurants, offices or other enclosed spaces when people burn tobacco products such as cigarettes, bidis and water pipes. Everyone is exposed to its harmful effects.
  2. Guidelines to Article 8 of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control state that there is “no safe level of exposure to tobacco smoke”. Creating 100% smoke-free environments is the only way to protect people from the harmful effects of second-hand tobacco smoke.
  3. Second-hand smoke causes 600,000 premature deaths per year. There are more than 4000 chemicals in tobacco smoke, of which at least 250 are known to be harmful and more than 50 are known to cause cancer.
  4. In adults, second-hand smoke causes serious cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, including coronary heart disease and lung cancer. In infants, it causes sudden death. In pregnant women, it causes low birth weight.
  5. Separate or ventilated smoking areas do not protect non-smokers from second-hand smoke. Second-hand smoke can spread from a smoking area to a non-smoking area, even if the doors between the two areas are closed and even if ventilation is provided. Only 100% smoke-free environments provide effective protection.
  6. About 40% of all children are regularly exposed to second-hand smoke at home. Thirty-one per cent of the deaths attributable to second-hand smoke occur in children.
  7. Youths exposed to second-hand smoke at home are one-and-a-half to two times more likely to start smoking than those not exposed.
  8. Ten per cent of the economic costs related to tobacco use are attributable to second-hand smoke. Tobacco use imposes both direct economic costs on society, such as those associated with treating tobacco-related diseases and indirect costs, such as those associated with reduced productivity or lost wages because of death or illness.
  9. More than 94% of people are unprotected by smoke-free laws. However, in 2008 the number of people protected from second-hand smoke by such laws increased by 74% to 362 million from 208 million in 2007. Of the 100 most populous cities, 22 are smokefree.
  10. Through the tobacco control package called MPOWER, WHO helps countries to implement the provisions of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control to protect people from second-hand smoke.
This World no tobacco day, SMOKEFREE, India’s First Electronic Cigarette Brand established in 2011, has established a new found mission: to not only help smoking convert to e cigs, but to also launch campaigns to encourage eradication of tobacco consumption altogether.
Smokefree Electronic Cigarettes serve the purpose of helping people quit smoking by standing as an alternative to regular tobacco cigarettes. Smokefree E-cigs have batteries instead of tobacco, cartridges instead of nicotine, water vapour instead of smoke! A Smokefree cigarette is made up 3 components. 1) The Cartridge. This contains the flavoured e-liquid inhaled during smoking. 2) The Atomizer. This changes the liquid from the cartridge into a vapour(smoke look alike) 3) The Battery, which is rechargable and has a micro processor which controls the atomizer. The tip is an LED light which blinks when the battery is low. Smokefree e- cigarettes come with tobacco flavoured cartridges and infused flavoured cartridges, all of which can be customised with differing amounts of nicotine. One Cartridge for Rs 20 would last you the equivalent of one pack of cigarettes. Our electronic cigarettes can be smoked legally in public places as they are Smokefree and hence do not lead to passive smoking.

Use of tobacco is one the leading preventable causes of death. The global tobacco epidemic kills nearly 6 million people each year, of which more 600,000 are people exposed to second-hand smoke. Unless we act, it will kill up to 8 million people by 2030 of which more than 80% will be in low and middle-income countries, experts say.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has selected “Tobacco Industry Interference” as the theme for the World No-Tobacco Day on Thursday.

Dr B Paul Thaliath, Additional Director, Medical & HoD, Radiation Oncology, said: “The campaign will focus on the need to expose and counter the tobacco industry’s brazen and increasingly aggressive attempts to undermine the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) because of the serious danger they pose to public health”.

It has honoured many individuals and establishments for taking firm steps against smoking to promote a healthy life style in the society.”

To support ‘Dubai without Smoking’ initiative of the municipality, 283 businesses, including shops, hypermarkets, supermarkets and petrol stations, will participate in the campaign. All restaurants and cafes are expected to cooperate with the civic body and participate in the campaign by stopping the sale of tobacco products during the day.

The sale of cigarettes in Dubai is prohibited to anyone below 20 years of age and public smoking is banned in the emirate, including in hotels, restaurants, cafes and offices. Every year, petrol stations, supermarkets and shops are encouraged by Dubai Municipality to stop the sale of cigarettes and tobacco products on May 31. Officials, however, hoped companies would continue the practice all year round, instead of the token 24 hours.

Tobacco Consumption is a Bullet Down Your Throat

May 31 is World No Tobacco Day. Smoking actually is a socially acceptable form of substance abuse that causes more deaths than more vilified ones like alcohol, cocaine, crystal meth and other recreational drugs.

May 31 is World No Tobacco Day. Smoking actually is a socially acceptable form of substance abuse that causes more deaths than more vilified ones like alcohol, cocaine, crystal meth and other recreational drugs. Cigarettes contain over a dozen carcinogens and 1 out of every 3 cancer-related deaths is caused due to use of tobacco products. Smokers even whilst accepting the hazardous effects of smoking simply don’t have the will power or gumption to quit. There are various smoking cessation methods that help smokers quit including nicotine patches, gums and e-cigarettes where the underlying principle is to give addicts the nicotine “kick” without the harmful carcinogens found in tobacco. The most popular one is the SMOKEFREE electronic cigarette or the E-cig.

What’s in a SMOKEFREE e-cig?

The SMOKEFREE e-cig basically consists of three parts: Cartridge, Atomizer and battery. The cartridge’s a mouthpiece (like a cigarette’s butt) that usually holds the liquid that is to be vaporized. The atomizer serves as a heating element and vaporizes the liquid and each of them contains a battery. A SMOKEFREE e-cigarette produces nicotine infused vapour and though it looks like smoke is actually atomised air. SMOKEFREE Electronic Cigarette’s come in Infused flavours like vanilla, chocolate, as well as tobacco favours like Tobacco, Cigar Etc.

When reporters asked Bolywwod Actress Sonam Kapoor if she has any message for her fans on World No Tobacco Day, She went on record registering her support for electronic cigarettes. She posted on a micro-blogging website, “Smoking is seriously not good! There are electric cigs available now. A lot of my friends are using it.” Now e-cigarettes are one of the most successful nicotine replacement therapies. Sonam Kapoor added that she felt it was hypocritical that the government which took such stringent measures to curb smoking on screen fails to do so in the real world.
