Currently, there are many people using E-cigarettes in the United States. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine published a report titled 《Public Health Consequences of E-Cigarettes》 which examined over 800 scientific studies related to E-cigarettes. The committee drew a series of conclusions regarding the health effects. In comparison to smoking, E-cigarettes may pose lower health risks. However, they also highlighted the potential risks of E-cigarette use for adolescents and pregnant women.

Health risks

Compared to traditional smoking, E-cigarettes are considered to be relatively less harmful due to the absence of tobacco combustion. However, E-cigarettes are not without risks. The long-term effects of using E-cigarettes on health are not yet fully understood, and there have been reported cases of severe lung injury associated with the use of certain substances. The United States experienced a series of lung injury outbreaks related to E-cigarette use, known as E-cigarette or vaping product use-associated lung injury (EVALI). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) investigated the symptoms and hospitalizations of EVALI patients from March 31, 2019, to February 15, 2020, and found cases of lung injury associated with the use of E-cigarettes.

Nicotine Addiction

Nicotine Addiction: Many E-cigarettes and vaping liquids contain nicotine. In 1828, German chemists Posselt and Reimann first isolated nicotine from tobacco. In 1843, Melsens proposed the chemical formula of nicotine. In 1893, Adolf Pinner discovered the structure of nicotine, and in 1904, A. Pictet and Crepieux successfully synthesized nicotine. It provides pleasure and reward to smokers, enhances focus, suppresses hunger, relieves stress, improves mood, and alleviates nicotine withdrawal symptoms. Although nicotine is not classified as a human carcinogen in the carcinogen classification index published by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization(WHO), current research related to nicotine indicates that it does not cause cancer in humans. However, nicotine is addictive and may have adverse effects on health.

Nicotine Addiction

Chemical Exposure

E-cigarette devices heat and aerosolize various chemicals, including flavors and other additives. While these chemicals are generally considered safe for ingestion, their safety when inhaled into the lungs is not fully understood. Some flavors and additives may have harmful effects when heated and inhaled. Studies published by the US CDC, the New England Journal of Medicine, and others suggest a potential association between the use of E-cigarettes containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and the additive vitamin E acetate and the occurrence of vaping-related lung injuries. Research published in PNAS found that heating vitamin E acetate can produce carcinogenic alkenes and benzene, which are known to have adverse effects on the human body in the medical field.

Regulation and Quality Control

There are variations in the regulation of E-cigarettes and vaping products across different countries. Some products may have inadequate quality control, leading to potential safety risks. It is important to purchase E-cigarette products from reliable sources and ensure they meet safety standards. Shenzhen, as the world's largest exporter of E-cigarettes, with 95% of E-cigarettes produced there, implements the highest global standards of certification. The E-cigarettes sold in our store are ISO9001 certified, and the products comply with EN71 and ROHS standards. The E-cigarette products have undergone CE and ROHS certification, and the cartridges and e-liquids have been tested by the Shenzhen Disease Control Center.

Regulation and Quality Control

In conclusion

Safe and reliable vape products offer potential benefits as reduced-harm alternatives for smokers. However, it's essential to be aware of the associated risks. Stay informed about potential hazards and make wise decisions when using E-cigarettes. Choose high-quality and reliable products, such as those available at VAPES CHILL.
