CONTROVERSIAL NEWS: “DID E-CIGARETTES REALLY HELPING SMOKERS QUIT OR JUST FUELING A NEW ADDICTION?”


Nicotine is the main substance keeping people addicted to smoking tobacco and consequently exposing them to the tar and toxins found in cigarettes. This is maybe the reason why many smokers are now shifting in the use of E-Cigarettes to quit their addiction to normal cigars. But this controversial issue here is that: 

“DID E-CIGARETTES REALLY HELPING SMOKERS QUIT OR JUST FUELING A NEW ADDICTION?”

According to CNN News, Tobacco kills almost 6 million people each year, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), and a growing number of people are now "vaping" instead of smoking, resulting in industry worth $2.7 billion worldwide.

It is also mentioned in their statements that the growing fear is the increasing domination of big tobacco in the e-cigarette market, which was once seen as a competitor. Their ownerships of popular e-cigarette brands could push out smaller companies in the field, reminiscent of the original tobacco epidemic.

"The intent of big tobacco is to sell their product," concludes Peruga. "[They may] expand their market to other customers who didn't use cigarettes but might consider nicotine use."

Lastly, but as it seems e-cigarettes are here to stay, most calls are for informed regulation rather than prohibition. "The majority of e-cigarettes -- especially when they are well regulated -- are likely to be less toxic than cigarettes -- and that for smokers is an advantage," says Peruga.

It is really a good thing to stop the use of cigarettes by shifting into e-cigars but we must always remember that anything that is much can bring harm and danger to us.
