Yorkshire smokers urged to quit by using e-cigarettes

Yorkshire smokers urged to quit by using e-cigarettes

It proves that quitting smoking not only have the positive impact on your health but also help you to save money.

For the study, researchers included 50,195 people, aged between 20 to 64 years and free of hearing loss.

It says nicotine replacement therapies are safe, licenced for use in pregnancy, and for people with cardiovascular disease, plus there is now worldwide consensus that electronic cigarettes are far less harmful than smoking.

They analysed data on smoking status - such as "current smoker", "former smoker", and "has never smoked"- alongside the number of cigarettes smoked per day, the duration of smoking, and the extent of hearing loss. E-cigarettes use cartridges of chemicals, including nicotine, that are transformed into vapor.

Smoking led to an increased risk of hearing loss that ranged from 20% to 60%.

"E-cigarette use is not covered by United Kingdom smoke-free laws, which prohibit smoking in enclosed public places and workplaces". Currently, Soneji said, the risk of initiating cigarette smoking is three times as high for adolescents who vape than for those who do not.

We're also getting the first seasonal event in the form of the Spring Blossom Festival , from April 6th to April 19th. April will also see the Spring Blossom Fest taking place and the Mega Man Palico gear surfacing.

Healthcare professionals working in the region will be encouraged to support smokers who choose to quit by vaping.

The findings appear in the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research. "Negative coverage in the media has led to a misconception that vaping is risky, when the reality is that e-cigarettes have the potential to reduce the harm from tobacco caused to smokers, those around them and the wider society".

'On the other hand, e-cigarettes may facilitate cigarette smoking initiation and confer substantial harm to adolescents and young adults once they are introduced to nicotine'.

Representatives from Reynolds American Inc., which owns market-leading e-cigarette Vuse, and competitor Altria Group Inc., maker of MarkTen and APEX, didn't immediately respond to requests for comment. "The risk of hearing loss associated with smoking seems to decrease in the five years after stopping smoking", said the authors. But now a new and novel effect of the habit has been discovered.

Due to the relative safety of e-cigarettes and their success in helping people quit, Yorkshire Cancer Research is calling for more support to be given to those who wish to vape.

Lagan Valley MLA Robbie Butler has backed Cancer Focus Northern Ireland's call to local smokers to stub out their cigarettes and become "Proud Quitters". Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in a statement that vaping devices are by far the most common source of experimentation with tobacco products among children.
