On Thursday, May 31, World No Tobacco Day 2018 will be organized by the World Health Organization (WHO) to remind us all of the dangers of smoking and how it can affect our health and those of our fellow human beings ,
Many of us now try to stop smoking with the help of e-cigarettes, but with the devices we can expose ourselves to a new health risk. In recent years, the number of studies dealing with the possible dangers of e-cigarettes has increased, and although some have produced contradictory results, they do not seem to be as harmless as one would have imagined. Here we summarize some of the latest research to show what we know so far, and why World No Tobacco Day is a good time to leave both e-cigarettes and traditional cigarettes.

Harmful to the Immune System
US research, which was released earlier this year, found the chemicals that were used to flavor e-cigarette liquids that are heated by the device to one Creating steam that users then inhale is toxic to white blood cells. The team directly exposed a type of white blood cell called monocytes, which helps the body fight infections, right down to a selection of e-liquids. They found that the aroma chemicals and fluids can cause significant cell inflammation, with many of the chemicals also causing significant cell death. Some flavors have been found to be more harmful than others, with cinnamon, vanilla and buttery flavors being the most harmful. The blending of e-cigarette flavors was even more harmful than exposure to just one taste.

A British study found that e-cigarettes may increase the risk of developing pneumonia as they may cause that pneumonia causing bacteria stick to the cells of the respiratory tract and increase the susceptibility to the disease. The study does not directly compare the risk of e-cigarettes with tobacco cigarettes, but the researchers say the results suggest that those who use e-cigs are at greater risk for lung infections than people who do not use the devices.

According to an American study from 2016, electronic cigarettes for gums and teeth are just as harmful as conventional tobacco cigarettes. The researchers found that when gum tissue is exposed to e-cigarette vapors, the cells release inflammatory proteins that increase stress in the cells and potentially cause damage that can lead to various oral diseases. Some of the aroma chemicals used in e-cigarettes also made cell damage worse. A Canadian study published in the same year also found that a large number of oral cells died within days after coming into contact with e-cigarette vapor in the lab.
