About the dangers of electronic cigarettes talk for a long time. Despite the fact that manufacturers of liquids say about the complete safety of their product, scientists believe the opposite – smoking an electronic cigarette, though not as destructive to health, is nicotine, but still there is little benefit.
Thus, recent studies have shown that the systematic smoking of an electronic cigarette leads to the accumulation of fat in the liver. And this, in turn, can lead to fatty degeneration of the liver and other extremely negative factors. In liquids for vap there is also nicotine, which provokes the development of pathological processes in the liver and other body systems.
Clinical studies were performed on mice. For 12 weeks, one group was exposed to e-cigarette fluid, and the second group served as a control.
At the end of the research, the following was established: in mice that received a daily dose of fluid, changes in 433 genes were detected. In addition, pathologies began with circadian rhythms. Both factors lead to the development of fatty liver disease.
Taking into account all the above, the following conclusion can be made – any cigarettes, both on the basis of tobacco and electronic cigarettes, are harmful to health.
