American media disclose the four harm of electronic cigarette is no less than other tobacco products

According to the report, the tobacco industry must, according to regulations, specify the terrible harm of smoking in the actual cigarette box, but there is no need to make such disclaimer for electronic cigarettes and other steam tobacco products. The American Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says young people in the United States are more likely to smoke electronic cigarettes than other tobacco products. In 2016, more than 2 million primary and high school students smoked electronic cigarettes every month in the United states.

There is a view that electronic cigarettes are harmless to health. However, although electronic cigarettes are not harmful to ordinary cigarettes, they also have some risks. Electronic cigarette is a new product, and the influence of long-term use is still under study, but some of its characteristics are now clear. Here are four major dangers of electronic smoke that need to be noticed:

1. most electronic cigarettes also contain nicotine, just like ordinary cigarettes

The harm of nicotine is well known: addictive, harmful to the development of the fetus, damage to children under 20 years of age (including 20 years of age), brain development of children and adolescents.

The aerosols contained in 2. electronic smoke are harmful to human body

Electronic cigarette smoke inhalation and exhaled gas may contain chemicals and heavy metals that are harmful to humans like nicotine. Because these substances are not within the scope of the review, it is impossible to know which kind of electronic cigarette actually contains.

Recently, the University of North Carolina School of Medicine (UNC) at the American Thoracic Society “American Journal of respiratory and critical care medicine magazine” (the American Thoracic Society&rsquo s American Journal of Respiratory; and Critical Care Medicine) published a study that found that electronic cigarettes will not only trigger the same human immune response caused by the common cigarette. Will provoke other special immune response, which is the human body depends on how to deal with foreign substances. Dr. &middot of Department of respiration, University of Texas Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center and UTHealth (Pushan Jani) said that this is because once the lungs feel abnormal, the immune system will quickly attack Gianni.

Pulmonary and critical care physicist at University of California School of medicine, clinical assistant professor Dr. Jamie &middot (Jamie Rutland); Rutland said: “ you will usually think (steam smoke) cause lung inflammation. In fact, &ldquo, even if you smoke clear fog without nicotine, this reaction can also occur.

3. electronic cigarette can cause injury

The battery of the electronic cigarette seldom fails, but once it happens, it burns both hands, face and other parts of the body. There was a burn accident last year. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and prevention, for children and adults, or smoke inhalation, ingestion due to direct contact with the skin and eyes of smoke caused by poisoning cases.

4. electronic cigarette “ change flavors to lure young smokers

Department of ENT, Stanford University director of Otolaryngology professor Robert · Dr. Jackler (Robert Jackler) said: “ flavoring industry scale, should be safe to eat, seasoning into the digestive tract, but the reaction of lung seasoning is very different, we know that some of these spices in production workshop, inhalation of the seasoning is very dangerous.

But the health risks are just one of the reasons why Dr Jackler is opposed to the flavor of electronic cigarettes, and he worries about some tobacco industries in order to attract young people. It has been reported that the consumption of electronic cigarettes continues to rise in the past 5 years, and novelty is a major incentive. A study published in 2016 shows that some teenagers believe that fruit flavored electronic cigarettes are less harmful than tobacco flavor. Jackler said: ““ tobacco industry want to lower the age limit of smokers, they know that sweet fruit flavor is a magic weapon to attract young smokers.”. If all the smoke is bitter, it smells disgusting.

The American Association for the preservation of the lungs (ALA) has been paying close attention to the use of electronic cigarettes among young people, and has launched a parade to make federal regulations for other tobacco products also applied to electronic cigarettes. Norman, &middot, Norman, a senior scientific adviser to the lung society, said: ““ we lobbied the food and Drug Administration (FDA) to enact regulations to regulate electronic cigarettes, but only local laws and regulations are doing this in.”.

He also pointed out that, unlike secondhand cigarette smoke, secondhand smoke fumes do not pose a health risk to people around them.

After consulting Mike and Robbie, New Zealand’s Ministry of Health decided to legalize the sale of nicotine containing cigarettes from 2018 and supervise them.

Now, Colin Mendelsohn, an associate professor at the school of public health and community medicine at the University of New South Wales, has urged the Australian medical community to follow suit. “ New Zealand follows the scientific evidence to respond to the call of the UK, which is a good thing; now electronic cigarettes have helped about 2000000 smokers quit smoking. “The sooner Australia legalized electronic cigarettes, the more it saved lives,” he said.
