If you are a smoker, you may have heard of the ingredients “nicotine” and “tar” contained in tobacco. However, few people seem to have a deep understanding of the characteristics of the two and their effects on the body. In this article, I will explain the details of nicotine and tar.
Typical health-related substances contained in tobacco
Tobacco is composed of various ingredients. Tobacco smoke contains about 4,000 different chemical substances, which have multiple effects on the human body. Among them, the famous ingredients are “nicotine” and “tar”. These two types are present in all tobacco products based on tobacco leaves and are closely related to the health of smokers.
First of all, nicotine is a highly dependent component and has a great impact on the human body’s chemical substances. I think many people who are used to smoking can no longer separate it as a luxury.
On the other hand, tar is the so-called “yani”, which is a particulate component, which removes gas components from smoke and smoke, and smoke is always generated when smoking. Due to its high viscosity, it will stay in the throat and lungs for a long time and affect the human body. Its color is also very strong, which may cause yellowing of teeth and room wipes. In addition, it has a unique strong smell, which can cause an unpleasant smell.
What is the difference between nicotine and tar?
Nicotine and tar are often confused as components in tobacco. But there are actually many differences. Both are components that affect the body, but first, it is important to master the correct knowledge.
When nicotine is taken, blood vessels constrict immediately. As a result, your heart rate may spike or become irregular. On the other hand, tar is said to have no such effects. In addition, it is known that nitrosamines produced during the decomposition of nicotine may have a great effect on the body.
On the other hand, tar contains more than 60 harmful ingredients, so the impact on health may be greater. In recent years, cigarettes that sell “low tar” and call for safety have also been released, but tar intake varies greatly depending on how individuals smoke. Remember, the view that “low-tar tobacco will not affect your health” is not always true, because if you smoke a lot, low-tar tobacco is still dangerous.
Nicotine binds to substances called “nicotinic receptors” in the brain and promotes the large secretion of dopamine, which is a substance that controls pleasure. Because smoking causes the rapid secretion of dopamine, it becomes dependent on nicotine. Depression and loss of attention during smoking cessation are also due to the effects of nicotine dependence. On the other hand, it is said that tar has no dependence.
Which is worse, nicotine or tar?
In the debate on tobacco, the theme is “Which is worse, nicotine or tar?” As a general premise, all of these are ingredients with a high level of toxicity. However, in terms of “more impact”, Tar is better.
For example, Reuters published an article stating that “nicotine is a catalyst for the development of a smoking habit, while tar is a catalyst for harming health.” Due to its strong dependence on nicotine, nicotine is generally considered to be the greatest danger of smoking. However, in reality, tar usually affects health, so it can be said that tar has a greater impact on the human body.
Nicotine does have effects such as “heart rate surge”. However, research is also underway to use these properties of nicotine to help treat heart disease. In addition, it is believed that nicotine can enhance sensory information processing functions, and it is believed that nicotine can be used to treat ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and Parkinson’s disease. If you have a smoking habit but pay attention to your health, you should pay special attention to tar measures.
E-cigarette etiquette when meeting with non-smokers (VAPE)
One thing smokers should pay attention to is “spend time with non-smokers.” Many non-smokers stay away from tobacco. Everyone has certain reasons, such as dislike smoking or worrying about bad breath or body odor. Considering these non-smokers, this is a good way for smokers to smoke.
Similarly, in some cases, non-smokers are healthier than smokers. This is because it is said that compared with the mainstream smoke inhaled by smokers, the exhaled sidestream smoke is much more harmful to the human body. Smokers should be aware that smoking will affect the health of the people around them.
In recent years, smoking awareness around the world has changed. Therefore, it is necessary to cooperate with smoke separation and consider quitting smoking. In this case, I hope you choose “Electronic Cigarette (VAPE)”. VAPE is a new type of tobacco that enjoys the steam produced by heating a flavored liquid instead of tobacco leaves. Various types of liquids are on sale, and you can enjoy various aromas and tastes by changing the liquid.
MybluTM is an electronic cigarette (VAPE) that can be purchased in Japan. Unlike traditional tobacco, it contains zero nicotine and tar. It can be said that it is an electronic cigarette (VAPE), which is less harmful than cigarettes and is very safe. You can also obtain VAPE-containing nicotine by separately importing overseas manufactured products.
Electronic cigarettes (VAPE) are widely loved all over the world, and it is an item that should be given due consideration to the people around them. Unlike cigarettes and heating cigarettes, it does not use tobacco leaves, so it can reduce the harmful effects of sidestream smoke. On the other hand, inferior goods may be mixed into VAPE that is only traded on the Internet. If you start using VAPE for health, make sure you understand the ingredients and the manufacturer clearly before choosing a reliable product.
