Smoking, nicotine and health

Nicotine and health

There are about 4800 ingredients in a cigarette, of which more than 80 are suspected to be carcinogenic. However, according to the current state of science, nicotine is not carcinogenic. Thus Nicotine Poucheswhich are without tobacco and enriched with synthetic nicotine, are a good substitute to become smoke-free.

So, in summary, although smoking is responsible for some types of cancer, there is enough evidence that nicotine is not the cause. Finally, people who consume nicotine without smoking do not show an increased risk of cancer.

At the same time, the dangers of nicotine should not be downplayed. Nicotine is addictive and harmful to health.

The effects of nicotine are:

  • Increase in blood pressure
  • Increase in dopamine production, which is accompanied by a feeling of calming down
  • Increase of alertness and attention
  • Stimulation of digestion
  • Decreases appetite
  • Increases respiratory rate

Nicotine is broken down by the liver and then excreted by the bladder. The half-life is on average 2 hours.


Can alternative nicotine products minimize the risks?

Nicotine Pouches are more comparable to nicotine gum than cigarettes. The health consequences for smokers are not only an increased risk of lung cancer (and other cancers) but also potentially diseases such as heart attack, stroke and impotence. Because of these potential diseases, smokers may experience a significant decrease in life expectancy; in Germany alone, an average of 330 people die each day from smoking-related causes. Smoking not only brings health concerns for yourself, but also for those around you. Passive smoking can also bring significant health damage.

With nicotine alternative products like Nicotine Pouches, smoking can be stopped without much extra effort. Finally, it is worth mentioning that Nicotine Pouches only shift the addiction from cigarettes to another product and do not lead to quitting!

    Grundsätzlich kann ich den wiedergegeben Fakten vollkommen zustimmen. Wie auch von Ihnen erwähnt wurde, ist es eine Verlagerung der Sucht und keine Lösung.
