Everyone interviewed in this particular research study was also thereafter followed for another 12 months of the year, after going back their unique smoking or leaving altogether.
E-Cigarettes are seen like healthier than real one but the researcher’s new study warns that, E-Cigarettes contain the most addictive form of nicotine, which is the reason for major health problems.
But because e-cig liquid also contains nicotine and emits carcinogens, researchers wonder whether that perception is really true.
Talking about the research, lead author Dr Neal Benowitz said that during the research they didn’t know if very low nicotine cigarettes won’t work to reduce nicotine dependence and enhance quitting.
During the 12-month follow-up, the lower levels of cotinine (a nicotine derivative found in plasma that provides an accurate record of the nicotine intake from smoking in recent days) in test group participants returned to levels similar to smokers in the control group, suggesting that they had returned to their former levels of smoking. Out of three forms, scientists believe “free-base” nicotine is the only one that gets absorbed by the body, making it the most addictive kind.
Although e-cigs don’t burn tobacco, they heat and vaporise a liquid that contains nicotine, flavourings and other substances.
But the new study says that, E-cigarettes has same amount of the most adductive form of nicotine which is commonly found in normal cigarettes.
Najat Saliba and colleagues tested commercial samples of liquids made for the devices and found that, by and large, the nicotine was in the most addictive form.
