  • E-cigarettes could raise the risk of high blood sugar levels, putting users on the brink of diabetes, 科学者は警告します.

    People who puff on vaping devices are 22 per cent more likely to have high blood sugar – known as prediabetes – compared with those who have never used them.

    Traditional cigarettes make smokers 40 per cent more likely to develop type 2 糖尿病.

    But it seems e-cigarettes might have an effect on blood sugar levels, あまりにも.

    Scientists want public health campaigns to discourage people from using the devices.

    A US team from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Maryland analysed data from 600,000 people in America.

    They looked for links between e-cigarette use and prediabetes – a serious health condition in which blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 糖尿病.

    Their results, published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, revealed that not only were current e-cigarette users 22 per cent more likely to have prediabetes compared with those who those who had never used them, but former users still had a 12 per cent higher risk.

    Lead author Dr Shyam Biswal said: ‘We were surprised. E-cigarettes are touted as a safer alternative, which is not the case. It is time to ramp up public health efforts to promote the cessation of e-cigarettes.’

    Some 3.6million people used e-cigarettes in the UK last year.

    The NHS plans to prescribe them to help people quit smoking.

    The possible link between them and prediabetes is not understood, but nicotine which is in normal cigarettes and e-cigarettes – is known to raise blood sugar.

    What is an e-cigarette and how is it different to smoking tobacco?

    An electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) is a device that allows users to inhale nicotine by heating a vapour from a solution that contain nicotine, propylene and flavourings.

    As there is no burning involved, there is no smoke like a traditional cigarette.

    But while they have been branded as carrying a lower risk than cigarettes, an increasing swell of studies is showing health dangers.

    E-cigarettes do not produce tar or carbon monoxide, but the vapor does contain some harmful chemicals.

    Nicotine is the highly addictive chemical which makes it difficult for smokers to quit.

    Nearly three million people in Britain use e-cigarettes, and more than nine million Americans.

    2. Juul

    Very similar to normal e-cigarettes but with sleeker design and, アメリカ合衆国で, a higher concentration of nicotine. In the UK and EU limited to 20 mg/ml.

    Thanks to its ‘nicotine salts’, manufacturers claim one pod delivers the amount of nicotine as a pack of cigarettes.

    It is composed of an e-cigarette (battery and temperature control), and a pod of e-liquid which is inserted at the end.

    The liquid contains nicotine, chemicals and flavorings.

    Like other vaping devices, it vaporizes the e-liquid.

    3. IQOS by Philip Morris

    Pen-shaped, charged like an iPod.

    Vaporizes tobacco.
