Vaping Not Worth Potential Heart Risk, Researchers Say

Vaping Not Worth Potential Heart Risk, Researchers Say

Vaping users increased from seven million worldwide in 2011 to 41 million in 2018, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). The US, the United Kingdom, and France are the biggest markets, which globally is worth an estimated $19.3 billion, up from around $7 billion five years ago.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and FDA are expected to provide new rules for vaping and flavored e-cigarette cartridges any day now, but Kellyanne Conway suggested Wednesday that these offices don't have the authority to regulate vape shops, according to reporting by Bloomberg News.

E-cigarettes typically heat a solution that contains nicotine, which makes cigarettes and e-cigarettes addictive. Almost 1 million youth reported vaping daily, while 1.6 million said they vaped "frequently" on 20 or more days per month. "And we can not assume that ingredients like propylene glycol, glycerine, and flavorings, which are inert when ingested orally, have the same effects when inhaled".

Regulators have been trying to find a way to limit youth use of e-cigarettes. "It's too much of a gamble to assume you won't get addicted and that there won't be negative consequences".

After accounting for the propensity for using e-cigarettes based on the 14 risk factors, however, lifetime and current e-cigarette use did not significantly increase the risk of current conventional cigarette smoking.

To further crack down on retailers selling tobacco and vaping products to underage youth, the New York State Police department is partnering with the Department of Health to conduct undercover investigations across the state under The Adolescent Tobacco Use Prevention Act, which enlists underage youth to attempt to buy tobacco and e-cigarette products.

As data from the 2018 edition of the survey showed, there was a skyrocketing use of e-cigarettes among youth in the USA, and that "Disapproval of regular use of e-cigarettes also has been relatively low compared to most other substances". Teens "not getting the message" Wold noted that most studies to date have focused on the acute effects of e-cigarette use rather than the risk of chronic use.

"For young people, this is of particular concern", the study's authors wrote, "because it could promote. nicotine dependence, making it easier to initiate and proceed to regular e-cigarette use or transition to cigarette or other combustible tobacco product use".

Because tobacco use persists among youth and adults, New York State continues to prevent young adults from starting smoking. 'The general public perception is that e-cigarettes are harm-free and safer alternatives to traditional tobacco cigarettes'. Also, little is known about the secondhand effects of vaping, as well as exposure to particles lodged in walls, drapes and clothing.
