Scientists: electronic cigarettes should be upgraded
Researchers from Pennsylvania state medical college (Penn State College) consider that medical workers should encourage switch to electronic cigarettes smokers who cannot quit this addiction. Professor of health protection and mental medicine Jonathan Foulds says that if smoker experiences difficulties in overcoming nicotine dependence and refusing long-term habit, in this case switch to electronic cigarette is one of the solutions to reducing risk for health.
From point if view of smoker this device looks like cigarette and delivers nicotine as cigarette, but without tar and carbon monoxide that cause distinctive disease.
Constructively, electronic cigarette represents heater-vaporizer of nicotine-containing liquid. Researches made by Folds' group show that 78 % of experienced smokers refuse usual cigarettes at all in favor of electronic. And it is interesting that considering this only 8 % from them use electronic cigarettes that are widely presented on the market.
Main majority uses exclusive devices or upgraded by craftspeople. The main reason of serial electronic cigarettes refusal is their weak evaporation and low quality of construction. One more disadvantage, Folds marks, is lack of control of smoking liquid dosage and its' quality.
It worth to mention, that research doesn't pretend on wholeness and doesn't apply to entire circle of "electronic" smokers. In interrogation participated 104 volunteers whose experience of electronic cigarettes smoking is more than one year. Research results were published in International Journal of Clinical Practice.
