What is Tobacco
The Cost of Tobacco
There are several reasons why electronic cigarettes are a better option than regular tobacco cigarettes for the smoker who wants the satisfaction of smoking without the drawbacks. The first reason has to do with taxes. Several decades ago, cigarettes were cheap; according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 1970, the average cost per pack of cigarettes was $0.38, and the average tax per pack of cigarettes was $0.18. However, prices and taxes have steadily increased over the past several decades. In 2009, the average cost per pack of cigarettes was $5.33, and the average tax per pack of cigarettes was $2.19.
Many people avoided paying anywhere from $7 to $11 per pack of cigarettes by rolling their own cigarettes. At "roll-your-own" stores, tobacco users could purchase loose tobacco at significantly lower prices and use the stores' machines to convert the tobacco into cigarettes. However, the government has closed that loophole as well; in July 2012, President Obama signed a bill that redefined tobacco manufacturers to include any businesses that own roll-your-own cigarette machines.
Classifying roll-your-own stores as tobacco manufacturers means that the government can tax tobacco products sold at these stores at the same rate as pre-rolled cigarettes. Also, the three biggest tobacco companies have raised their prices yet again, which helps make tobacco products a less appealing option when it comes to finances.
The good news is that White Cloud Electronic Cigarettes don't contain any tobacco, which means that they are not subject to the same price and tax increases and are thus a more attractive financial option for savvy consumers looking to satisfy their nicotine cravings.
The second reason why electronic cigarettes are a better option than tobacco cigarettes also has to do with money. People who use tobacco products such as regular cigarettes or smokeless tobacco pay higher health insurance rates and receive fewer social security benefits. Smokers also lose money when it comes to the resale of possessions such as homes, cars and furniture, and they are forced to spend more money on things like teeth cleaning and dry cleaning. In several states, it is legal for companies that dislike tobacco use to charge extra for health care programs or refuse to hire smokers.
By using White Cloud Electronic Cigarettes, you will not be using tobacco in any way, shape or form. In addition to cutting down on medical insurance and dry cleaning bills, you will also save money because electronic cigarettes are much cheaper. A smoker who goes through a pack of tobacco cigarettes per day can expect to spend $2,100 on average per year on their smoking habit while an electronic cigarette user can expect to spend a mere $600 on average per year.
What is tobacco?
There's also the concerning issue of what is in tobacco? Tobacco contains nineteen known carcinogens as well as traces of radioactive lead and polonium. The tar in tobacco lingers in your lungs for an extended period of time, giving your body plenty of time to absorb these toxic materials. Tobacco is the single largest preventable cause of the premature death and disease in the United States, which is due to tobacco's tendency to increase the risk of medical issues such as cancer, heart attack, COPD and emphysema. White Cloud Electronic Cigarettes do not contain tobacco and tar, but you'll instead find nicotine, flavoring and propylene glycol which is a food additive approved by the FDA.
