Great River, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/04/2013 -- An electronic cigarette is a device that mimics a traditional cigarette in looks, but is a safer alternative for smokers since it contains no tobacco, tar, or carcinogens. This device has been making headlines as the country waits for a FDA regulation to be passed. But are all the headlines accurate? Are certain groups trying to make the device look harmful when its intentions are good?
The CDC had reported that the percentage of high school students who said they had used an e-cigarette jumped from 4.7 percent in 2011 to 10 percent in 2012. Use also doubled among middle school students.
But is that the whole story? In BU Today, a professor of community health sciences named Michael Siegel says that the negative effects of electronic cigarettes are being blown out of proportion according to. Michael Siegel stated, “The overwhelming majority of the youths who reported experimenting with e-cigarettes were already smokers. So the fact that these smokers are experimenting with e-cigarettes is not really a problem. The concern would be if nonsmokers were using electronic cigarettes, and then moving on to regular cigarettes.”
There are also claims being made that electronic cigarettes are a gateway to lifelong addiction for any age, but electronic cigarettes have not been around long enough for anyone to come to that conclusion.
The government along with electronic cigarette makers are in agreeance that teens should not be able to use or purchase electronic cigarettes, but this also requires responsible headlines.
Clearette Electronic Cigarettes supports all regulations to stop minors from purchasing and using electronic cigarettes. This is supported through the age verification on the website. Clearette also urges all retailers that sell Clearette to not sell to minors if it has not been implemented in their state.
Siegel went onto to tell BU Today that, “ While we don’t have a lot of quantitative studies about the effectiveness of e-cigarettes in smoking cessation, a clinical trial published recently found that e-cigarettes are just as effective as the nicotine patch for smoking cessation. Unfortunately, the e-cigarettes tested were a first-generation product that did not deliver nicotine very well. It is possible that more advanced products could actually surpass the nicotine patch in their effectiveness.”
Recently VCU and SciMetrika were given grants by the government to study tobacco related products with a focus on electronic cigarettes. This research conducted with the latest models of e-cigarettes will show the benefits of using electronic cigarettes.
