How has science and technology changed smoking habits? Smokeless products as a solution to tobacco consumption. The advantage they bring to health
Technology - the world revolves around it. It has radically changed our lives in different spheres, from artificial intelligence, to the way we work, communicate, travel, take care of our health and give up bad habits like smoking.
The combined forces of science and technology play a major role in combating the effects of smoking.
Science has brought a real revolution in this field, at a time when many countries of the world are trying to find a way to deal with a large number of smokers. Despite the decades-long campaign against traditional cigarettes, there are still about a billion smokers in the world.
Precisely for this reason, science offered an answer to the question - How do we help all those smokers who, although aware of the harm, do not want to quit smoking?
The answer is: Less harmful alternatives.
These are products that heat tobacco and are a less harmful form of nicotine consumption.
This new generation product reduces harmful substances by 95% because it uses a system that does not burn the tobacco, but heats it.
What else makes this option less harmful for smokers?
Avantazhi më i madh qëndron pikërisht në procesin e rëndësishëm të ngrohjes që eliminon djegien dhe të gjithapasojat që ajo sjell.
Tymi i duhanit është shumë më tepër se tymi i zakonshëm që ne e shohim me sy të lirë, dhe është pikërisht cfarë krijohet nga djegia. Kur ndizet një cigare, duhani fillon të digjet dhe krijohet tym përmes të cilit duhanpirësit thithin jo vetëm nikotinë, poredhe më shumë se gjashtë mijë substanca, prej të cilave rreth100 dihet se janë të dëmshme ose potencialisht të dëmshme, përfshirë monoksidin e karbonit.
Shkencëtarët kanë arritur të eliminojnë këtë problem kyç tëkrijuar nga tymi i duhanit duke krijuar një teknologji të re tëkonsumit të duhanit, siç janë produktet pa tym.
When you use these alternative products, no smoke is created, and the important difference is that cigarettes create tar, which is a combustion product. When approaching this type of harm reduction concept, it is important to note that such products are not without risk and that their use releases nicotine, which is addictive.
These products are intended exclusively for adult smokers who, under different circumstances, would continue to consume classic cigarettes.
The work of science and technology received confirmation from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which declared that smokeless products with scientific support are fundamentally different from cigarettes and that exposure to potentially harmful substances during their use is significantly reduced in comparison by smoking classic cigarettes.
