It found the most harmful taste electronic cigarettes
Until now, there are disputes about the dangers of smoking electronic cigarettes. It is especially difficult to say something, when you have to compare it with the harm from tobacco smoking. Nevertheless, a new study presented at the annual conference of the American Thoracic Society, opens the eyes to the influence of certain chemicals that are used to flavor in the liquid for electronic cigarettes.
The researchers noticed cinnamaldehyde - a compound that is used to simulate the taste and smell of cinnamon. This compound has an effect on the cells of the wind pipe leading to the lungs. Cells have cilia that move, helping to clear mucus. The scientists exposed the cells to a cinnamaldehyde.
Part of the cells was exposed to a liquid containing cinnamaldehyde. Another part was treated with an aerosol containing substance. Both experiments showed that the liquid and vapor, containing the substance to restrict the movement of cilia on the cells for hours after exposure. It is believed that this may weaken the body and make it more vulnerable to chronic lung disease and infections. The result is the same as that of smokers. Of course, this study is not completed. Scientists have yet to find out the effect of cinnamaldehyde on living human cells. So, unfortunately, still it can not be clearly compare the harm of smoking electronic cigarettes harm from tobacco smoking. Let the results of the study can cause anxiety, they can not scare people away from smoking electronic cigarettes.
