Each year, tobacco usage is responsible for nearly 6 million deaths; 600,000 of which are non-smokers who die from breathing second-hand cigarette smoke. This figure is continuing to rise and is expected to hit 8 million by 2030. Tobacco use is the single most preventable cause of death globally and is currently responsible for 10% of all adult deaths worldwide. Tobacco cigarettes contain over 4000 dangerous and cancer-causing chemicals which are responsible for a variety of diseases and illnesses such as COPD, heart disease, cancer and high blood pressure which can cause strokes. The health implications of smoking tobacco cigarettes are reflected by the statistic that smokers take 25% more sick days each year compared to non-smokers. If you're ready to go smoke-free, switching to an electronic cigarette is great alternative to smoking. Rather than burning tobacco, electronic cigarettes contain a flavoured liquid which is heated to produce a vapour. The vapour produced by electronic cigarettes allows you to satisfy the nicotine craving that causes most people to relapse when they stop smoking tobacco but because it doesn't contain any of the 4000+ dangerous chemicals it is a healthier alternative to tobacco cigarettes.
