People who vape on electronic cigarettes ‘more vulnerable to pneumonia’

Earlier, the US health authorities said that between 2011 and 2013, the number of teenagers trying to use e-cigarettes in the United States has doubled, and many people worry this will lead to a new generation of “addicts”.

According to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 250,000 young people who have never smoked cigarettes used vapes in 2013. According to the Journal of Nicotine and Tobacco Research, this is twice the number of young people using e-cigarettes in 2011.

A survey of junior high school and high school students in the US Youth Tobacco Survey showed that more than 79,000 teenagers tried the e-cigarettes in 2011, and the number was more than 263,000 in 2013.

Bonner, deputy director of the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said: “The trend of more teenagers vaping is a warning to parents and health care workers.” She said: “especially for young people who have used e-cigarettes. For them, the odds of smoking traditional cigarettes are twice that of teenagers who haven’t tried the vapes.”

The study found that 44% of non-smoking teenagers who have tried e-cigarettes said they plan to try the conventional cigarettes in the second year. However, in the non-try grope of young who have never tried e-cigarettes, only 22% said they would try traditional cigarettes.

The vape is a device shaped like a conventional cigarette, which evaporates a solution containing a small amount of nicotine into an aerosol, which is inhaled by a vaper, like a conventional cigarette, but no smoke came out.

These e-cigarette devices are currently unregulated in the US market and allowed be sold to teenagers. Experts point out that fruit and candy-flavored e-liquid of vapes are more harmful to minors.

Juul is taking over the US market and is about to enter London!

Following the $15 billion evaluation, Juul is expanding rapidly in the US and opened its first international office in London on Tuesday. After London, Juul plans to launch in three other countries.

Standing in the bustling hall of a San Francisco warehouse, the employees are sitting apart from each other and had a freshly prepared lunch in hand, and you wouldn’t know that you had just stepped into the headquarter of an e-cigarette company.

But Juul Labs is full without seam, from the basement to the attic without air conditioning, employees are everywhere. The company’s popular vape has a unique strong nicotine liquor and a unique smell of smoke. Revitalize the former flat electronic cigar industry.

After London, the company plans to open in three other countries – France, Singapore and Israel. This international initiative is comparable to the similar expansion in the United States, where the number of employees in the United States has tripled only in the past six months.

Currently, Juul’s headquarter is located at a five-story warehouse in the Douglaschi community of San Francisco (They planned to expand to a larger building across the street), with offices in 19 locations across the country. From big cities such as Boston and Chicago to smaller regions such as Des Moines, Iowa and Manchester, New Hampshire.

But as it grows, Juul faces several challenges, including local laws restricting sales of its products, concerns among teachers and parents about the evaporation of teenagers and surveys of their advertising practices.

The rise of “Juul

Juul users – some of them are current and former adult smokers; others are children and adolescents. As the most popular vape on the market, Juul even produced his own verb: “Juuling.”

However, although adult Juuling (rather than smoking) is largely considered to be good for public health because it is less dangerous than inhaling burning tobacco, juvenile Juuling is an unforeseen big problem – at least in the United States. More and more researchers are ringing the alarm about the addition of the vape pen


Scientists are particularly worried about younger users who may have never smoked but have picked up a yule of cigarettes. Because several well-designed studies have shown that young people who smoke are more likely to continue smoking traditional cigarettes.

In addition to the concerns of public health experts and researchers, Juul is also facing legal pressure. San Francisco banned the sale of spiced tobacco products last month. This includes the Juul flavor pack called JuulPods. In addition, the FDA is investigating whether Juul sells its products to teenagers.

The Australian Nanny State vape ban took effect on July 1st, and the British health department supports the protest against the ban

According to the “Daily Mail” report, the Australian NSW government officially implemented a vaping ban on July 1, prohibiting people from using vapes in any public places, and offenders will be subject to huge fines.

Critics believe that the ban will make smokers who are trying to quit smoking through e-cigarettes “off the track.” E-cigarette users will be forced to return to the smoking area and get in the high danger of re-acquiring smoking habits,

The Cancer Council of NSW welcomed the e-cigarette ban, citing that vapes can create a potential “passive smoking” hazard. Although international research shows that this is not true.

Research by the Public Health England shows that e-cigarettes are far less harmful than cigarettes. The complete replacement of cigarettes with vapes will bring significant health benefits. Relevant surveys found that as many as 20,000 smokers successfully quit cigarettes after using vapes.

Despite this research, Australian Health Minister Greg Hunt is still strongly opposed to the reduction of e-cigarette restrictions, which strongly suggested that this will not happen during his duty.

Colin Mendelsohn, chairman of the Australian Tobacco Harm Reduction Association, said that many international experts believe that vapes will not cause health hazards to others. According to the latest survey, vapes smoke evaporates after a few seconds of exhalation, while cigarette smoke particles can stay for 30 to 45 minutes.

New Nicotine Alliance Australia is actively promoting the replacement of traditional cigarettes with vapes. Alliance member Annette Huppatz said that she was just trying new things then met e-cigarette, but she gradually quit smoking after that. Vapes offer a healthier alternative. Although she has more than 30 years of smoking experience, this does not mean she is willing to return to the smoking habit.
