E-cigarettes could lead to 21% decline in deaths from smoking-related diseases for people born after 1997: Study

A study appeared in Nicotine & Tobacco Research suggested that e-cigarettes may result into a 21% decrease in deathsfrom smoking-related diseases for the ones born after 1997.

Even considering harms people could contract from vaping, who wouldn’t have smoked at all, the researchers discovered a net public health gain from e-cigarettes presence. Then, why the US Food and Drug Administrationis going to put huge regulatory barriers for e-cigarettes beginning in this month?

The reason behind it is: regulator over-caution. The FDA isn’t openlycalled culprit for the loss of lives of people who suffer and die due to lack of drug, item, or service because of their slow and excessivelycostly approval process. However, it is blamed for products causing damage 20 or 30 years later.

In electronic cigarettes’ case, they have been sacrificing people in millions who will definitely lose life as a result of their tobacco addiction for the unidentified number of people who could face danger by the long-term effects of nicotine present in vaping products.

The bad effects of smoking traditional cigarettes overshadow the vaping risks. Both of them have nicotine, an addictive substance, but itself aren’t probably more harmful than caffeine and could even have some advantages. But cigarettes take lives of 50% or more of its users. Though a comparatively new product category, vaping is estimated to be 95% less dangerous in comparison to traditional tobacco products.

Smokers are apparently in favor of switching to vaping. A survey of roughly 30,000 European Union residents, appeared in the Journal Addiction last month, concluded that among the 7.5 million daily vapers, 35% had totally switched to cigarettes from traditional tobacco.
