The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is trying to convince the American public that smoking e-cigarettes is extremely bad for health, especially among teenagers. But Scott Gottlieb, director of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, admits that e-cigarettes are good for adult smokers seeking to reduce tobacco harm, But in this statement he chose to elaborate in cautious words.
Few members of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have claimed in the past that e-cigarettes are a safe and effective way to quit smoking, while officials at the U.S. Public Health agency claim the claim is unfounded. The federal government has banned the use of e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation tool, even in local home-based e-cigarette stores. News of e-cigarettes as a means of quitting smoking is also prohibited in mainstream media and even privatized blogs and websites, unless the head of the business or individual blogger cites appropriate research reports as a source. At the same time, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other activists against e-cigarettes continue to distort the facts and spread misinformation,
Trying to convince the American people that smoking e-cigarettes is as deadly as smoking cigarettes.
A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) is constantly being recognized in the mainstream media. The study, written by Dr. Meje Gnevich of the Rothwell Park Cancer Center, showed that the toxicity of smoking e-cigarettes was significantly lower than that of cigarettes, and was actually 98% less toxic. Officials at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other public health boards tend to stick to legislation, arguing that there is a need for more research into the long-term effects of e-cigarettes before the U.S. government fully endorses them as a smoking cessation product. According to a report published by CNN, Dr Gnevich agreed in some way that
But he also noted that certain scientific principles allow researchers to make a simple and close assessment of these potential long-term effects. "One way is to measure chemicals that may contain toxicity in the body, that is, certain biomarkers, which is what we did in our study (Journal of the American Medical Association). " The researchers first selected more than 5,000 adults and divided them into four different groups: smokers who only contain combustible tobacco,
Contains only non-tobacco, nicotine-enhanced e-cigarette smokers, including the above two smokers, who do not smoke cigarettes/e-cigarettes. Dr. Gnevich's team assessed about 50 biomarkers per member of each of the four groups. Based on the typical marker characteristics of combustible tobacco products and their toxicity exposure level, biomarkers are selected. Biomarkers in related categories include urine metabolites, trace tobacco alkaloids, arsenic and arsenic compounds, heavy metals,
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and volatile organic compounds (VOC). The researchers showed that a group of people who smoked only e-cigarettes had an average of 93% less toxins in the body compared to a group of cigarettes and cigarettes and e-cigarettes, with the range of people who smoked e-cigarettes ranging from 10% to 98%. Most surprising, however, is the highest levels of tobacco toxicity exposure in a group of cigarettes and e-cigarettes,
This is true even when compared to a group that only smokes cigarettes.
"A group of people who smoked cigarettes and e-cigarettes had the highest levels of tobacco toxicity exposure in the body, even more than a group that smoked only cigarettes. Although it may be affected by the frequency of smoking, this finding is consistent with the content in the literature and is of public concern, as most e-cigarette users are both e-cigarettes and cigarettes. Dr Gnevich further concluded that e-cigarettes are very useful in helping adults quit smoking, but only if they are used properly, and that it is never recommended to use both cigarettes and e-cigarettes. The only way to quit smoking safely and effectively while rapidly reducing the exposure of carcinogens and other toxins is to switch to e-cigarettes altogether, And there must be no deceit.
