New research shows that smokers that turn to e-cig get lower cancer-causing compounds but they are exposed to the same number of nicotine.
An electronic cigarette or electronic cigarette is a hand-held electronic device that vaporizes a flavored liquid, which the user inhales. Since their entrance into the market in 2004, global usage of e-cigarettes has risen exponentially and by 2013, there were several million users internationally.
The main reasons for electronic cigarette use frequently associate to stopping smoking and diversion. During a US 2013 survey, 56% of respondents reported having used cigarettes to discontinue or reduce their smoking.
Regrettably, the local convenience store typically displays advertisements for e-cigarettes and tobacco products. Because the products like cigarillos, chew and e-cigarettes are usually equipped with bright packages like candies and chewing gum they tend to be very appealing for kids.
Moreover, being put on the counter or near sweets and having distinct flavors, like cherry strawberry and banana split they can be believed to affect consumption among minors.
There isn’t any surprise, so their products get a place where they’ll be readily seen that tobacco companies pay big money.
The recent study shown that people that quit smoking tobacco smokes and replacement completely with e-cigarettes may reduce their exposure to many cancer-causing substances.
The researchers then checked for 17 biomarkers of toxins and amounts of nicotine in their pee and carcinogens.
Researchers considered that the declines were comparable to individuals who quit smoking. Nonetheless, during the analysis, the nicotine levels stayed the same.
The author of the study considers that e-cigarette use when completely replacing the tobacco products, may effectively reduce exposure to hazardous and carcinogenic substances. However, more studies must be run to see whether the danger of disease is decreased among double users -those who both vape and smoke – and individuals who use cigarette for a very long time.
