Oncotarget Study on E-Cigarettes
People have been warned that smoking is bad for their health. This warning resulted in the making of E-cigarettes, which people have thought to be better compared to the conventional Cigarettes. A recent study published in Oncotarget by Irfan Rahman, Ph.D. professor of Environmental Medicine and Dentistry, proves that all may not be well with E-Cigarettes. These cigarettes are as damaging to the gums and teeth as the conventional ones. How does this come about? You may ask. A study shows that the vapor from the electronic cigarette is burned, therefore resulting in the release of inflammatory proteins by the cells. This aggravates stress within the cells leading to damage that could cause oral diseases.
According to Irfan Rahman, how often you smoke, determines the level of damage to the oral cavity and gums. Nicotine which is also present in the E-cigarettes is known to cause gum disease. This type of cigarette is growing rapidly among the youths and former cigarette smokers. The mentality is that E-Cigarettes are safer. But according to Irfan Rahman, this is far from the truth. So, before you take that puff, read on this research, published by Oncotarget. Their publishers are thorough and respected. Therefore they just might save your health.
