You may have tried a smoking solution like the nicotine patch or steam cigarettes in recent years if you have ever tried to stop smoking. Vape cigarettes were first invented 13 years ago and each year has become increasingly popular and available. By the year 2014, the Oxford Dictionary, even though it was named “the vaping,” could not disprove its popularity. One of the key reasons behind the so-called “pace smokers” is that many people feel that it is a better choice to smoke cigarettes. However, facts concerning steam cigarettes (some of them known as e-cigarettes) have been clouded in myths, “said Frank T. Leon, MD, MS, philanthropist, and director of the Penn Medicine Comprehensive Treatment Programs.
MYTH # 1: VAPING MORE DANGEROUS THAN CIGRETTESl
Modern cigarettes contain over 7,000 chemicals when burned, 69 of which are considered to be carcinogenic. The two main components in the vapor fluids are propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (GV), both used to form and add flavor to the vapor. Vapourous devices contain different ingredients, however. A third ingredient, typically a common food taste found in cakes, oils, and other foodstuffs that contribute to the taste of the steam. All of these compounds are common dietary ingredients that regulatory bodies including the FDA consider to be healthy and safe
MYTH#2: THE VAPES ARE “CRISIS” IN TEENS:
Already the lowest ever number of smoking, fewer than 14 percent of U.S. people. That’s the lowest incidence in the history of teenagers smoking. For vaping at least 20.8% of high school students have been vaporized once in the last 30 days, according to the new CDC estimates. However, nearly half of them vaporized weed instead of cigarettes, typically illicit drugs. Certainly, but not as framed by the public health officials, this problem needs to be addressed. And given that no data on overall vaping were collected before 2015, no new data collection can be concluded statistically in a crisis warranty
MYTH # 3: ALL RECENTLY RESPIRATORY ILLNESSES VAPING IS A CAUTION:
Late reporting of disease and hospitalization on traditional vaporizers and liquids was of great concern. Late reporting is a major concern. Almost 380 lung diseases related to vapor have been reported by the CDC. Sensational headlines and opinion pieces convinced politicians and President Donald Trump even to talk straight away about the ban on vapor flavors. However, careful analysis of the reported cases shows that a large majority of patients with symptoms have used illicit vapor mixture cartridges with THC.
A analysis of Illinois and Wisconsin case reports in the New England Journal of Medicine indicates 84% of inpatients report using illegal THC vapor cartridges before their illness. No cancer was related to vapor pods or a nicotine-containing liquid obtained from a pharmacy.
To this end, a multi-million – dollar enterprise this combined many chemical compounds (including Vitamin E) in cartridges for Vaping hardware, which they then unlawfully sold, has recently arrested two Wisconsin children. This large scheme has been noticed in authorities throughout much of the mid-west to be a culprit in the latest lung disease.
A flavor ban only drives people into the black market or back into cigarettes who want to use flavourous vapor products. Recent studies have shown that current vapors are more likely to smoke if vapor products are banned. For public health, that will be really necessary
In recent years, innovations in hazardous tools have produced vaping and e-cigarette products that are demonstrably less harmful than traditional tobacco products. In contrast to sensationalistic media reports, adults who use vapor and e-cigarettes as a means to stop smoking greatly enhance their chances for long, healthy, and productive lives. At the same time, the increased use of the items by teenagers is a source of concern but does not threaten to ban the entire group used by responsible former smokers of adults.
