Is the electronic cigarette toxic?

PARIS (Reuters) – The electronic cigarette is composed of non-negligible amounts of carcinogenic molecules such as formalin, according to research conducted by the magazine 60 million consumers.

The results released Monday by the magazine show a more or less high content of formaldehyde, acrolein and acetaldehyde depending on the brand of disposable or rechargeable electronic cigarettes with or without nicotine.

What worries most is the presence of acrolein, a toxic by inhalation or ingestion and whose contents proved superior to those of conventional cigarettes, the study notes.

The testing center of the magazine conducted its study on a new method : vapor electronic cigarettes have been observed in relation to their composition and not even a comparison to substances in tobacco smoke , but the details the means to achieve these results remain unclear.

According to a report by the French Office for Smoking Prevention (OFT) published last May, the e- liquids contain and release of other potentially irritating and/or classified as toxic, but much more often less than the tobacco smoke. The same report had concluded that the absence of carcinogen.

To Mickaël Hammadi, Chairman of collective actors of the electronic cigarette, it is a product that should not be consumed without knowing. It takes a frame around the electronic cigarette.

Mickaël Hammadi, speaking on RTL and asked to meet the Minister of Health calls for the standardization of components of the liquid refill e- cigarettes to stop what he calls the “anything”.

My opinion on the Joyetech eroll

A highlight of the eroll Joye Tech is battery charger (or CPC) convenient since it is portable. With 13 mm thick and ultra contemporary design it looks very much like an iPhone 4. Its charge time is about 3:15. It remains then to slip into your pocket for a day of mop.

With several batteries, autonomy allows me to leave all day without being obliged to carry with me some cigarettes burning in case.
Each battery 90 mA requires only three quarters of an hour to recharge the CPC 1000 mah. The battery is charged when the blue light goes off.


Some small leak e-liquid after a few days of use, and I must admit that this could be a peculiarity own Joye Tech since I had already found it rather unpleasant item with e-Cab, very aesthetic also, light and efficient.

The fact that there is a ring in the pack that ring must necessarily be on the e-cig if you want vapoter. However, to charge the atomizer, the ring is necessary if the contact with the connectors is not done. But by adding a small piece of cardboard, I managed to win millimeters missing and thus to thwart the problem. In conclusion, I must say that this eroll Joye Tech is small in size but big on effects as the hit and vapor are of excellent quality.

Compact, efficient, aesthetic and with an ultra mini loader with many liquids is a good product that requires very little improvement to be perfect.
