    The following are a few interesting facts that you might not have known about nicotine. This can be helpful to those of you who are trying to defend your decision to vape E-cigarettes from the sceptical mindsets of friends, family, co-workers, etc. The misconception that nicotine is a carcinogen, and a dangerous drug, is often confused with the many other chemicals specifically in cigarettes that are carcinogenic, dangerous, unhealthy, etc. The following is a list of many of the health benefits of nicotine:

    1. There are over 4,000 chemicals in the average cigarette… many of them carcinogenic. Nicotine is NOT one of them.

    2. Nicotine has been found to reduce approach-avoidance behavior in animals, and healthy human volunteers.

    3. Nicotine interacts with cell membranes in such a way as to ease the passage of certain ions through the membrane. This aids in, among other things, the communication between synapses in your brain, increasing cognitive functions... (Click here to read the rest of my article.)

    One thing I have been trying to find a debunk on is, does nicotine really constrict your blood vessels? One of the reasons I want to quit analogs is fear of stroke or heart attack.

    Thank you very much for the info.
    Has anyone else noticed new health insurance forms that ask if the applicant uses nicotine (not whether they smoke or dip tobacco)? I wondered if they had any actuaries that showed deleterious effects from nicotine use or were merely extrapolating from studies of tobacco use.
