Do you think how many people around the globe enjoy the gadget called “electronic cigarettes”? According to a study conducted by the CDC in 2013, “electronic cigarettes” uses about 6.8% of juvenile members of the population and about 6% of adults. In other words, these devices are used by about 20 million people in the U.S. alone (5 million adolescents and 14.5 million adults).
This is a pretty big market. But is it safe for these “gadgets”? As found out the new, the largest in the history of research on electronic cigarettes – no unsafe.
According to data released by the American Heart Association (American Heart Association), it became clear that electronic cigarettes are serious health risks of their user. Although not as large as traditional tobacco products.
As it turned out, electronic cigarettes give access to the smoker’s lungs several dangerous toxins that can cause considerable damage to his health. Long-term biological effects still requires further study, however, this proved harmful. The researchers also found in several previous studies on electronic cigarettes critical errors and mistakes that have caused false optimistic conclusions about their safety.
Together with the recognition of the harm from smoking gadget, scientists agree that traditional cigarettes are far more harmful than electronic. According to estimates, the smoke conventional tobacco contains 9-450 times more harmful toxins than a similar volume of smoke electronic cigarettes.
Evaporation of electronic cigarettes, according to preliminary data, can lead to undesirable genetic mutations, leading eventually to the emergence of cancer. Researchers from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), Boston University, and the University of Texas found that evaporation of electronic cigarette cigarette smoke causes a similar genetic mutation. The effect is not the same in detail, but there are many striking similarities, anyway, leading (to some extent, a disproportionately smaller than in the case of tobacco cigarettes) to lung cancer.
