Веяние времени – е-Сигареты, «бэз пылы и дыма». Читать тут:


По-моему, хорошая альтернатива «старомодным» сигаретам, опять же, как переходный период к здоровому «не-курению вообще».  Насчет вредности компонентов, заявленных в рекламе – никотин (никуда не денешься) + пропилен гликоль (propylene glycol). Последний тоже яд в определенных дозах, но известен как пищевая добавка E1520 : “In food production, it is used as an additive E1520, as a water-retaining, emollient and dispersant agent, to produce food antioxidants, flavouring and colouring, agents, emulsifiers, enzymatic agents.” – то бишь не вреднее, чем привычный средне-супермаркетный «пищевой» продукт.

“The oral toxicity of propylene glycol is very low, and large quantities are required to incur the dangerous effects described above. The potential for long-term toxicity is also low. In one study, rats were provided with feed containing as much as 5% PG over a period of 104 weeks and they showed no apparent ill effects.[7] Because of its low chronic oral toxicity, propylene glycol is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for use as a direct food additive. Cases of propylene glycol poisoning are related to either inappropriate intravenous use or accidental ingestion of large quantities by children.[8]
