The telescope further controls the controversy about the integrity of the e-cigarettes, which emphasizes the flavors of fruit and other additives found in electronic cigarette fluids that appear to cause inflammation and weakening of lung function, and even more recent findings show that exposure to electronic cigarette dams causes infections for a short while similar to those arising from exposure to conventional cigarette smoke.
The new study, published in the American Journal of Physiology, was conducted in mice, not humans, by researchers at Athens University in Greece. The researchers divided the mice into four groups and then exposed mice for different doses of chemicals four times over one day with a break between each time and another about 30 minutes.
A group of four was exposed to traditional cigarette smoke. The other was evaporated by aromatic electronic cigarettes derived from vegetable oil called propylene glycol. The third exposed to electronic cigarette vapor containing parbilylene glycol and nicotine while the latter was evaporated by electronic cigarettes. Contains propylene glycol, nicotine and tobacco mass.
Three days later, the results showed four groups of infections, sleep production and changes in lung function. However, the group exposed to steamy nicotine and the taste of tobacco showed more negative effects, especially when exposed for a long time. In addition, the group experienced an increase in levels of inflammatory proteins, such as histamine, confirming that exposure to these components poses more health risks. Seriousness of other species.
The American Journal of Physiology reported that the group's exposure to electronic cigarettes compared to the group exposed to traditional cigarettes was astonishing for researchers. The level of oxidative stress at the cellular level in the group exposed to the flavors was equal to or higher than for conventional cigarettes.
But before you jump to any bold conclusions, there are some things to consider when you look at this study. First, this study was conducted on mice, not humans. Secondly, it is difficult to compare e-cigarette smoking by placing animals in a closed chamber four times a day with a 30-minute interval. Third, all effects that have been studied have short-term effects. Since e-cigarette smoking today is a new trend, the studies that have focused on this phenomenon have not been long-term, and it explains the continuing controversy over its safety.
However, this study is based on strong evidence that electronic cigarettes have many health problems. But the current consensus still claims that they have lower health risks than traditional cigarettes.
At the end of the study, the researchers commented: "The harmful effects of lung exposure to electronic cigarette vapor on animal models highlight the need for further investigations and investigations to test the safety and toxicity of these devices, which expands significantly worldwide.
