Smoke-damaged airway tissue restored on switching to glo
Studies by British American Tobacco show that airway tissue damaged on exposure to smoke was restored when exposed to vapor from glo rather than smoke. These results add to evidence that glo has reduced risk potential compared to cigarettes. glo is a tobacco heating product designed to heat rather than burn tobacco. Tests show that glo heated tobacco vapor has around 90-95 percent less of certain toxicants than cigarette smoke. (2018-03-14)

'Cool' factor separates e-cigarettes from nicotine inhalers
Why are e-cigarettes so popular among Americans who want to quit smoking, even though so little is known about their safety or effectiveness? The answer lies in their marketing -- they are simply 'cooler' than nicotine inhalers. So says Michael Steinberg of the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in the USA, leader of a pilot study about the perception and use of these nicotine delivery devices. (2014-06-03)

Researchers at Chapman University have published a study looking at electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) use among Orange County adolescents. The data shows teens are more likely to vape when their school is located near vape retailers. (2016-11-02)

Belief about nicotine content in cigarette may change brain activity and craving
How the brain responds to nicotine depends on a smoker's belief about the nicotine content in a cigarette, according to new research from the Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas.

Tobacco hybrid emits low-toxicant, e-cig-like vapor with enhanced flavor
Chemical analysis has revealed no detectable difference between the vapours produced by an e-cigarette and a novel tobacco hybrid, (iFuse). Previous research revealed that the levels of nearly all tested toxicants in Vype ePen vapour are much lower than in cigarette smoke. The Royal College of Physicians is among those who say that smokers should switch to e-cigarettes to reduce harm and help them quit smoking. However, some consumers say that they want more tobacco taste. (2017-05-29)

Smoking during pregnancy increases risk of SIDS
A new study provides the most direct evidence that there exists a causal link between smoking during pregnancy and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Clinicians have long considered prenatal cigarette smoke exposure a major contributing risk factor for SIDS, but researchers had not proved a casual relationship. Other contributing factors include disturbances of breathing and heart rate regulation and impaired arousal responses, thermal stress (primarily overheating from too high temperatures or too much clothing) and sleeping in the prone (belly-down) position. (2008-05-30)

Early morning smokers have increased risk of lung and head and neck cancers
Two new studies have found that smokers who tend to take their first cigarette soon after they wake up in the morning may have a higher risk of developing lung and head and neck cancers than smokers who refrain from lighting up right away. Published early online in Cancer, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society, the results may help identify smokers who have an especially high risk of developing cancer and would benefit from targeted smoking interventions to reduce their risk. (2011-08-08)

Researchers create a healthier cigarette
From a health care perspective, the best cigarette is no cigarette, but for the millions of people who try to quit smoking every year, researchers from Cornell University may have found a way to make cigarette smoking less toxic. (2012-01-02)

Don't treat e-cigarettes like cigarettes
Assuming e-cigarettes are equal to cigarettes could lead to misguided research and policy initiatives, reports a new Northwestern Medicine commentary, published Friday, Sept. 28, in the journal Nicotine & Tobacco Research. The commentary distills articles and published studies that compare e-cigarettes to cigarettes and supports the importance of investigating e-cigarettes as a unique nicotine delivery system.

Airway test reveals e-cigarette vapor produces similar result as air
E-cigarette vapor from two different types of e-cigarette had no cytotoxic impact on human airway tissue, according to new research published in Toxicology in Vitro. Scientists used a unique combination of tests to investigate the potential adverse effects of e-cigarette vapor on airway tissue compared with cigarette smoke. Despite hours of aggressive and continuous exposure, the impact of the e-cigarette vapor on the airway tissue is similar to that of air. (2015-07-14)

E-cigarette vapor does not cause oxidative stress in viable lung epithelial cells
E-cigarette vapor is much less harmful to lung cells than cigarette smoke. Lab tests show that, unlike tobacco smoke, which causes oxidative stress and cell death, e-cigarette vapor does not. Oxidative stress and cell death are driving factors in the development of many smoking-related diseases such as COPD and lung cancer. (2016-10-05)

Toxicant levels are around 90 percent less in glo™ emissions compared to cigarette smoke
Toxicant levels in glo™ emissions are around 90 percent less than in cigarette smoke. glo™, a commercial tobacco-heating product, heats rather than burns tobacco. It is the toxicants produced by burning tobacco that are responsible for causing most smoking-related diseases. Reducing smoke toxicants levels should in principle reduce consumer exposure, a potentially important factor in reducing risk. (2017-10-24)

Use of cigarettes, e-cigarettes among women of reproductive age in US
Cigarette use was lower among pregnant women in the United States (8%) than among nonpregnant women (14.3%) but rates of e-cigarette use were almost identical (3.6% for pregnant women and 3.3% for nonpregnant women) in a study based on national health survey data. The study included data for 1,071 pregnant and 26,849 nonpregnant women (18 to 44 years old) from 2014 to 2017. (2019-04-29)

Hybrid device delivers tobacco flavors with e-cig like vapor
A novel product combining e-cigarette technology with fresh tobacco successfully delivers natural tobacco flavors without impacting the potentially reduced risk nature of the aerosol produced. Flavorings are an important part of the vaping experience, but currently available e-cig flavors are food grade and the tobacco flavorings are unsatisfactory. This hybrid technology delivers a natural tobacco flavor without having to directly heat or burn the tobacco eliminating many toxicants produced by excessive heating or burning of tobacco. (2016-03-05)

Differences in nicotine metabolism may explain ethnic variations in lung cancer rates
Chinese-American smokers have a lower rate of lung cancer than smokers of other ethnic groups. A new study suggests that this may be because Chinese-American smokers take in significantly less nicotine per cigarette than smokers of other ethnicities. The findings appear in the Jan. 16 issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. (2002-01-15)
