Here comes novel device equally harmful as traditional smoking, e-cigarettes

14 February 2019

CDC Director Robert Redfield said the "skyrocketing" growth of young people's e-cigarette use over the past year threatens to erase progress made in reducing youth tobacco use.

"We're creating a new generation of youth and adolescents that have an addiction to nicotine products".

The researchers found that cigarette smoke and heated tobacco vapour were highly toxic to the cells both at lower and higher concentrations while e-cigarette vapour demonstrated toxicity mainly at higher concentrations.

In 2018, more than 1 in 4 high school students (27.1% or 4.04 million students) and 1 in 14 middle school students (7.2% or 840,000 students) were current users of any tobacco product. Two in five high school students and one in three middle school students used two or more tobacco products in 2018.

The regulation of e-cigarettes falls to Health Canada, which announced last week it was looking at new measures of restricting ads and limiting their visibility to youth. "Indeed, if anything, the evidence to date indicates that e-cigarettes could increase the number of kids who smoke cigarettes". For example, it's vital for clinicians to ask youth about their use of diverse tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, in terminology that they understand, such as if they use Juuls or vape pens.

A group of students and doctors are hoping to do more to stop people from smoking, and they're targeting e-cigarettes and vaping.

International Brent crude oil futures were up 37 cents, or 0.6 percent, at $63.98 a barrel. Analysts polled by Reuters forecast an increase of 2.7 million barrels.

"It took us almost five decades to understand the damaging effects of cigarette smoke and we don't yet know the long-term impact of using e-cigarettes".

The high school group most likely to use any tobacco product was non-Hispanic white students, followed by Hispanic students, non-Hispanic other race students and lastly, non-Hispanic black students.

Scientists also said that they took almost five decades to clearly know the damaging effects of cigarette smoke.

Sales of Juul, which is a high nicotine e-cigarette with vaping liquid contained in pods resembling USB devices, increased by approximately 600% during 2016-2017 and increased even further in 2018. "What came out clearly was that the newer products were in no way less toxic to cells than conventional cigarettes or e-cigarette vaping".

You must already be at least 21 years old to purchase tobacco products in the Garden State, which also prohibits smoking in public places, including (as of last month) parks and beaches. "The devices also use nicotine salts, which can allow high amounts of nicotine to be inhaled more easily and with less irritation than the free-based nicotine that's used in most other e-cigarettes". He also noted that federal law prohibits states from regulating tobacco product transport by truck, which could conflict with the proposal, as drafted.

The findings were published February 11 in the CDC publication Vital Signs.
