At Genecigs we are passionate about our smokeless products and believe absolutely that they can improve the lives of millions. However, we must make this important disclaimer: we can’t and don’t advertise electronic cigarettes as legitimate smoking cessation aids or health products because they are not approved or regulated by the Australian government’s Therapeutic Goods Administration.
Why? Well, electronic cigarettes are a fairly recent invention, and haven’t been around long enough to be comprehensively studied and their effects measured over a long period of time. However, university studies have shown that electronic cigarettes much safer than tobacco cigarettes, containing only trace amounts of the harmful chemicals found in real cigarettes. Studies further show that e-cigarettes have an extremely high success rate when used to help quit smoking. These unbiased investigations come from reputable sources such as Boston University and Health New Zealand.
Nicotine is an addictive chemical, but by itself does not cause cancer or life-threatening illnesses. The deadly danger of cigarettes is the smoke that’s created by burning tobacco. This is what delivers nicotine to your bloodstream and nervous system, along with thousands of other toxic and carcinogenic chemicals. Therefore, inhaling the water-based vapour in e-cigarettes is a much better option than smoking, which the World Health Organisation reports kills nearly 6 million people every year. Even with e-liquids containing nicotine, the damage done to the human body is far less than that done by smoking cigarettes. There’s even research suggesting that nicotine is a brain stimulant that reduces the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease!
Supporting this clinical and scientific evidence is anecdotal evidence from countless ex-smokers who have replaced real cigarettes with electronic cigarettes. While we cannot legally claim our products are approved health products or smoking cessation devices, we can point you in the direction of the many reports from real people who have used e-cigarettes to successfully quit smoking, and experienced improved health and quality of life as a result.
And from the bottom of our hearts, we hope that you and your loved ones will find peace, health, and happiness in a life without smoking!
