  3. A Long-Term Study Suggests That Vape Is Safer Than Cigarettes

    A Long-Term Study Suggests That Vape Is Safer Than Cigarettes

    A new paper published in the American journal of preventive medicine is a longitudinal analysis of the relationship between vaping and lung disease. Researchers followed e-cigarette users for three years and found they had a 1.3-fold higher risk of respiratory disease than people who did not use any tobacco products. Meanwhile, smokers are 2.5 times more dangerous than smokers, while smokers and smokers are 3.3 times more dangerous than smokers. Dr Stanton Glantz, a professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco and lead researcher on e-cigarettes, said: "if you're going to do one or the other, in terms of these respiratory effects, e-cigarettes might be better." "This study actually does support reducing the harm of e-cigarettes," said Andy Tan, an assistant professor of population sciences at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, who studies e-cigarettes. "Yes, the risk of smoking and subsequent lung disease is about 29 to 31 percent higher within two to three years than if you don't smoke, but it's 156 percent higher than if you don't smoke." Researchers found that the use of nicotine e-cigarettes and combustible tobacco was associated with a higher risk of respiratory disease, but atomization appeared to be less dangerous than smoking, and both products were better used alone than either. Grantz's position is that the switch from smoking to vaping could save millions of lives by reducing the burden of smoking-related diseases. But this result is in dispute with the current position of banning e-cigarettes. What do you think?

  4. E-Cigarettes Reduce Harmful Chemicals More Than Cigarettes

    E-Cigarettes Reduce Harmful Chemicals More Than Cigarettes

    While the United States was discussing a proposed law to ban e-cigarettes, the United States conducted a study to examine the use of e-cigarettes and cigarettes and their exposure to toxic substances.  In us, 264 adults who smoked daily were recruited from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Columbus, Ohio and Buffalo, New York. Participants were randomly assigned to an eight-week instruction period. They were divided into four groups: randomly using an e-cigarette, completely replacing cigarettes with e-cigarettes, completely replacing cigarettes with nicotine gum or lozenge, and continuing smoking regular brand cigarettes. Result Smokers in completely replacing cigarettes with e-cigarettes and completely replacing cigarettes with nicotine gum or lozenge groups showed lower rates of smoking and lower exposure to carbon monoxide, tobacco carcinogens, and other toxicants than smokers in the randomly using e-cigarette groups. The major carcinogens tar and carbon monoxide are found in cigarettes. Tar can clog the lungs and cause coughing. It also pollutes lung tissue and affects lung function, which is a major cause of mouth, throat and lung cancer. Carbon monoxide blocks circulation and leads to blood buildup, increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke. The e-cigarettes found in the study reduced harmful chemicals more than conventional cigarettes. Give us a different way of reference, we should be more worthy of thinking, whether the benefits of a comprehensive ban on smoking outweigh the disadvantages?

  5. E-cigarettes May Be Safer For Your Immune System Than Cigarette, A New Study Suggests

    E-cigarettes May Be Safer For Your Immune System Than Cigarette, A New Study Suggests

    Smoking alters the genes of mice involved in metabolic and stress responses, which alters their immune response and makes them more susceptible to lung infections. The scientists found that e-cigarette vapors do not turn on the bacteria's genes, meaning they have no effect on the bacteria's ability to infect. Researchers from the University of Louisiana at lafayette infected mice with a strain of streptococcus pneumoniae that causes most out-of-hospital infections. In the new study, researchers divided mice into four groups. One group was exposed to strawberry-flavored e-cigarette vapor containing nicotine, the same vapor containing no nicotine, cigarette smoke, or nothing. Next, they analyzed patterns of gene expression, the degree to which genes are turned on or off like a light switch. They found that the e-cigarette with nicotine and without nicotine activated only a few genes: 264 and 14, respectively. By contrast, smoking altered the expression of 982 genes, most of which were involved in metabolic and stress responses, increasing susceptibility to infection. "Interestingly, neither nicotine-containing nor without nicotine e-cigarette smoke altered the ability of pneumococcus to cause lung infections in mice," Dr. Kulkarni said. The experiment proved that e-cigarette vapors did not turn on the bacteria's genes, meaning they had no effect on the bacteria's ability to infect.

  6. 5 Unique Christmas Gifts to Surprise your family and friends

    5 Unique Christmas Gifts to Surprise your family and friends

    5 Unique Christmas Gifts to Surprise your family and friends   Christmas comes into the corner. Choosing gifts would be the pain point for most of us. How to pick up the right one from tons of choices to surprise them? Here is the gift guide for you. To Lady: No1: Jo Malone candles Some would say that makes them boring — an un-creative present that's lacking in the personal touch. I say there's a reason this gift has stood the test of time, and that reason is precise that everyone loves candles, but no one loves having to spend their own money on candles. Candles are the most classic gift of all time. It is the best gift if you don’t know what to prepare. No2: Silk Pajamas There’s something so glamorous — and comfortable — about the idea of slipping into silk just to go to bed. But for most people, an old T-shirt and ratty (but beloved) soft pants do the job of pajamas just fine, and venturing into the world of matching silk sets can be intimidating. To Man: No1: Airpods Pro Apple’s latest wireless AirPods headphones come with impressive noise-canceling technology, 24-hour battery (thanks to its charging case) and comfortable, streamlined design. Maybe many friends already get in the packet, but this is still a very good Christmas gift, small and practical! No2: Portable music speaker After years of being on both the giving and receiving the end of gift-giving, we can all agree there’s nothing better than a practical gift you’ll actually use – rather than something you'll just stuff in a drawer for the next 12 months.  And there’s nothing more practical for audiophiles and music lovers than a great pair of headphones or a Bluetooth speaker.  You might want to check they haven’t already invested in something similar first, but even if they’ve got a brand new home cinema system with best-in-class audio, if they love listening to music then chances are they’re still going to find a place in their home for a cool smart speaker, or put a new pair of headphones to good use at the gym.  OK maybe you have a smoker in your life and you’re desperate to help them quit – what could be better than a vape kit as a present! Christmas is a bit of a stressy time for many and maybe not the best few days to pack up smoking – you know what I mean lol. But if the smoker in your life makes a resolution to quit every year that lasts until the twelfth chime – maybe a decent starter kit will get them cutting down or even quitting for good. Of course, e-cigarette gifts aren’t just for Christmas!

  7. Studies Show: Switching From Cigarettes To Vape May Be Better For Heart Health

    Studies Show: Switching From Cigarettes To Vape May Be Better For Heart Health

    Although E-Cigs have been getting a lot of attention recently for their popularity among kids and the recent illicit THC cartridge lung injuries, many have also looked to vaping as a less harmful alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes. On Friday, the Journal of the American College of Cardiology published new research suggesting that heart health among adult smokers’ could benefit from switching over to e-cigarettes.  The study consisted of 114 people and concluded that vaping e-cigarettes improved blood vessel health, and could be seen in “vascular stiffness” within just a month of making the switch from traditional cigarettes. “The ability of our blood vessels to widen and increase flow when needed has been linked to long-term outcomes,” explained Dr. Rose Marie Robertson, deputy chief science and medical officer for the American Heart Association. The study which states that people who switched over to e-cigarettes full time and those who had smoked cigarettes for less than 20 years, saw much more rapid results in improving their vascular function.  In addition, there was another study conducted at the University of Dundee in the United Kingdom where they had some new findings. Existing studies had suggested that vaping increased cardiovascular risks, for example finding certain compounds in e-cigarettes that were thought to have damaged cardiovascular cells and that vaping after just one use could change blood vessels. “The [new study’s] finding contradicts the findings of observational studies that find that people who vape are at higher risk of heart disease, because those studies are inevitably and irreversibly confounded by former smoking,” said John Britton, director of the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies.  In conclusion, all recent reports have shown that vaping is much more healthy than previously thought. Even though vaping is still a safer alternative to smoking, it should still be used responsibly.

  8. What Will PHE Do With The Vaping Situation In The Us

    What Will PHE Do With The Vaping Situation In The Us

    Since mid-September, headlines around the world have warned about an outbreak of serious lung disease across the US, said to be associated with vaping. As of October 22, 1,604 cases have been reported to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) from 49 US states, including 34 deaths.   Dr Dana Meaney-Delman, head of the CDC team investigating the outbreak has reported that “We've narrowed this clearly to THC-containing products that are associated with most patients who are experiencing lung injury. The specific substance or substances we have not identified yet”. THC is the main psychoactive component of cannabis and the CDC has said that the products identified are being obtained off the street or from other informal sources. The specific chemical or chemicals that are causing the illness and deaths have not yet been identified and it is not clear that all cases are the same kind of injury. The outbreak does not appear to be associated with long term use of nicotine e-cigarettes, which have been used in the US for over 10 years.  the responses we have seen to the problem in the US and in other countries may increase the already widespread misunderstanding about the relative safety of nicotine e-cigarettes, deterring smokers from switching and risk driving vapers who have switched back to smoking. There is a real risk therefore that such a reaction will mean people continue to smoke, which will undoubtedly put lives at risk. PHE’s advice on e-cigarettes remains the same PHE has not changed its advice on nicotine containing e-cigarettes: Smokers should consider switching completely and vapers should stop smoking.

  9. Study In UK Finds Vaping Is Good For The Heart

    Study In UK Finds Vaping Is Good For The Heart

    Smokers can improve the health of their hearts within weeks of switching to e-cigarettes, the largest trial of its kind shows. The month-long study of 114 smokers suggests vaping has the potential to reduce heart attack and stroke risk.  The British Heart Foundation said stopping smoking was the single best thing you could do for your heart.  Chemical substances in cigarette smoke slim arteries since they get furred with greasy deposits increasing the risk of a fatal blockage. Ultimately smoking cigarettes doubles your risk of using a heart attack.  But the researchers mentioned the present evidence on vaping was "poor" and quite often examined the impact of any individual e-cigarette on cardiovascular system wellness.  So that they supervised people's bloodstream a month when they had been switched to e-cigs in the test.  They focused on how blood vessels increase whenever a wave of bloodstream rushes through, by calculating "stream-mediated dilation".  The more the bloodstream are able to broaden the much healthier they may be. Stream-mediate dilation ratings have already been closely linked to the long-term probability of heart attacks and stroke. The results, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, showed: Healthy non-smokers had a score of 7.7percent Smokers had a score of 5.5percent But those who switched to nicotine e-cigarettes for a month had a score of 6.7percent So, switching to vaping got those smokers about halfway back to a healthy score. "They're not quite normal, but their vascular function improved quite significantly, just within a month," said one of the researchers, Professor Jacob George.  Prof John Britton, director of the UK centre for tobacco and alcohol studies at the University of Nottingham, said: "This randomised trial provides clear evidence of a reduction in a marker of cardiovascular disease risk in people who switch from smoking to vaping. "The finding of the study, that vaping is less harmful than smoking, is intuitively correct on the grounds of the lower range and levels of emissions known to be present in vapour relative to tobacco smoke."   The resources: https://www.bbc.com/news/health-50436296

  10. Vitamin E Acetate In Illegal E-Cigarette Is To Blame

    Vitamin E Acetate In Illegal E-Cigarette Is To Blame

    The centers for disease control and prevention (CDC) eventually all but acknowledged that e-cigarette deaths and lung disease had nothing to do with legal nicotine e-cigarettes. "For the first time, we have identified a potential toxin of concern in a patient's biological sample, vitamin E acetate," Dr. Anne Schuchat, the CDC's lead deputy director, said today. The CDC examined lung tissue samples from 29 patients in 10 states and found that all contained vitamin E acetate oil. "These new findings are significant," Schuchat said. "We have a powerful criminal." Legal e-cigarettes do not contain vitamin E acetate. But it is often used by drug dealers to cut THC vape bullets to increase their profits. "These findings provide direct evidence for the role of vitamin E acetate in major lung injury sites," Schuchat said. Given that e-cigarettes have been around for more than a decade, have tens of millions of users around the world, and have never had an outbreak of such a disease, the CDC should be clear that there is something more at work than nicotine. While e-cigarettes are ubiquitous in places like Canada and Europe, it should be especially clear that the United States is the only country in the world to have an e-cigarette epidemic. But the CDC insists that common e-cigarettes cannot be ruled out as a cause of the outbreak. As recently as November 1, the centers for disease control and prevention advised that "people should consider avoiding all e-cigarette or vaping products during the investigation because the specific compounds or ingredients causing lung damage are not known." "The national campaign for tobacco-free children and the Truth Initiative, the best-funded anti-tobacco group, have been highlighting the crisis, without mentioning THC or the black market. The centers for disease control and prevention (CDC) has been reluctant to give any recognition to e-cigarettes as a useful tool for smokers trying to quit and has not clarified to the public that e-cigarette use of legal nicotine products is highly unlikely to cause e-cigarette-related deaths and lung disease.
