The Mice in Lab Prove Vapes is Less Hamful than Cigarettes
A study through biological experiments has shown that cigarettes are more harmful than vape.
Philip Morris International Group said the results of a new study add to existing evidence that switching from cigarette smoking to VAPE use could be part of a successful strategy for adult smokers worldwide to reduce tobacco hazards.
The study was carried out on mice exposed to air, cigarette smoke and a vape, total of three formulations through a “whole-body inhalation system” (shown here, a whole-body inhalation system, although not necessarily the system used in the study). Exposure lasted for six months, three hours a day and five days a week.
PMI announced a new study on electronic cigarettes at the 58th Annual Meeting of the Society of Toxicology in Baltimore, according to a report posted on its website yesterday. PS: PMI is a global project management association “This study shows that six months later, the biological response to cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases induced by electronic cigarette vapor containing and without nicotine is significantly lower than that induced by cigarette smoke. ”
The study, conducted in collaboration with Altria Group, assessed the biological responses of mice exposed to e-cigarette vapor and mice exposed to the e-cigarette smoke.
According to the World Health Organization, more than one billion people around the world will continue to smoke in the foreseeable future. Reducing tobacco hazards can play an important role in complementing existing tobacco control strategies to help reduce the risk of smoking-related diseases.
“To successfully reduce hazards, current adult smokers need smokeless products (including vape and heated non-combustible products), which can provide nicotine but contain far less harmful substances than cigarettes. ”
The report quotes Dr. Julia Hoeng, director of toxicology for PMI systems, as saying that the results of this study “strongly supplement the evidence that switching to electronic cigarettes is much better than continuing to smoke”.
“This study is indeed a landmark study, which not only proves the reduction of the toxicity and risk of electronic cigarettes between cigarettes, but also assesses the role of nicotine and flavors. ”
With the further development of Vape and new tobacco products, more and more attention has been paid in the world, and related research has been carried out.
Through the latest research report, we can also find that Vape is becoming more and more powerful in the world, and the Research Report beneficial to the whole industry is showing an upward trend.
But at the same time, we should not forget that vape appeared as a harmless product. It has never been harmless. Its function is to help people who are deeply hurt by tobacco.
We need to pay attention to the development of the industry at all times, so as not to cause more minors to be exposed to harmful elements such as nicotine.
