Many smokers smoke electronic cigarettes, mainly like the promotion of electronic cigarettes that they do not produce second-hand smoke and are not harmful to health. Despite the propaganda of the industry, the threat of e-cigarettes to human health has not been eliminated. Compared with ordinary cigarettes, e-cigarettes still have some advantages, such as e-cigarettes do not contain tar, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.
Is it dangerous to smoke e-cigarettes for a long time? Is it harmful to use e-cigarettes regularly?
First of all, the first point is that “e-cigarettes contain harmful substances”. We do not deny this, because e-cigarettes are not completely harmless, and long-term use will definitely have some health effects. But is there anything in the world that is absolutely safe and harmless? Our daily food also contains preservatives, flavors, additives, etc., as well as e-cigarettes. It is not completely harmless, but as long as these harmful ingredients are controlled within the standard, then its impact on human health is actually minimal. A study published by the Department of Public Health (PHE) over the past 15 years has proven that e-cigarettes are 95% safer than traditional cigarettes.
The second point is “misleading propaganda leads to public misunderstanding”. It is true that some companies may exaggerate the functions of e-cigarettes when promoting their products, but “e-cigarettes assist smoking cessation” is indeed a fact. About 1.5 million e-cigarette users are ex-smokers, and more than half of them have quit traditional cigarettes, according to a survey by Action on Smoking and Health. Quitting smoking is not something that can be done by relying on foreign objects alone. Personal willpower is also important. Electronic cigarettes can only play a supporting role. The key to success depends on the individual.
The third point is that “e-cigarettes are easily addictive to teenagers”. This phenomenon may indeed exist, but the editor believes that in response to this problem, e-cigarettes should not be directly banned in a “one-size-fits-all” way, but should be issued by regulatory authorities. The regulation prohibits the sale of e-cigarettes to minors and prohibits brands from marketing to young people. Most e-cigarette users are smokers. If e-cigarettes are completely banned, these people can only pick up cigarettes and continue to be poisoned by cigarettes.
How harmful are you to this problem? If you are a non-smoker and use e-cigarettes, you will naturally think that e-cigarettes are too harmful, but if you are a smoker or a victim of secondhand smoke, if you are a non-smoker and use e-cigarettes , you will naturally think that e-cigarettes are too harmful, but if you are a smoker or a victim of secondhand smoke, it is indeed healthy compared to traditional cigarettes.
