E sigaret vergiftigt luchtwegen en verzwakt immuunsysteem


Het wordt gepresenteerd als een beter alternatief dan gewoon roken en dat is het misschien ook wel, maar ook de e-sigaret is niet zonder gevaar.

Het gebruik van e-sigaretten is de laatste jaren behoorlijk gestegen. Een onderzoek van TNS Nipo liet zien dat in 2014 meer dan 4 % van alle rokers gebruik maakt van dit elektronische alternatief. Dit was een aantal jaren daarvoor nog slechts 1,5 %. En het lijkt erop dat deze stijging zich voortzet.

Er zijn al vele onderzoeken en studies gedaan naar de gezondheidsrisico's van de e-sigaret. Want hoewel je geen teer binnenkrijgt zoals met gewone sigaretten, zit de waterdamp van het elektronische staafje vol met giftige stoffen.

Een nieuw onderzoek van de Universiteit van California-San Diego (UCSD) naar de effecten van deze damp op muizen, laat zien dat het gebruik van e-sigaretten ernstige gezondheidsrisico's oplevert. Zo is aangetoond dat bacteriën die in contact komen met de damp, veel lastiger te bestrijden zijn. Dit komt omdat de bacteriën zichzelf door middel van de damp kunnen omgeven met een biofilm waar het afweersysteem van het lichaam moeilijker grip op krijgt.

Maar veel ernstiger waren de negatieve effecten op het immuunsysteem. Muizen die herhaaldelijk in contact waren gekomen met de giftige dampen bleken een veel lagere weerstand te hebben en 25 % sneller te sterven wanneer zij in contact gebracht werden met gevaarlijke bacteriën.

Dr. Laura E. Crotty Alexander, hoofd van de UCSD School of Medicine, zegt hierover: "This study shows that e-cigarette vapor is not benign; at high doses, it can directly kill lung cells, which is frightening. We already knew that inhaling heated chemicals, including the e-liquid ingredients nicotine and propylene glycol, couldn't possibly be good for you. This work confirms that inhalation of e-cigarette vapor daily leads to changes in the inflammatory milieu inside the airways."

Het blijkt dus maar weer eens dat ook de elektronische variant van roken, zeer slecht voor de gezondheid is. De beste - en meest voor de hand liggende - oplossing is gewoon helemaal te stoppen met roken, maar als dat zo simpel was, deed iedereen het wel.

Benieuwd of het gebruik van een e-sigaret ook kan helpen tot stoppen met roken of juist niet? Bekijk dan dit artikel.

You'll see these five this summer!
You'll see these five this summer! the ant, the fly, the fruit fly, the mosquito, the wasp Hello, Summer. - This summer it is warm like these days, so tropical! The #insecten coming with whole armies at us. First we got a horde of ants at the barn door. Hundreds of ants. They plowed so much sand, it looked like molehills. Then the fly. I live in the countryside between the lands, so yes, there are always flies. But since a few days with this heat a lot of fat shit-flies. I always get them out of the house as soon as one comes in, because they poop everything down. Then the fruit fly! Whaaaa, I find that one of the most annoying there is. Do you know that if you eat a sandwich or have a drink, that it floats in front of your face every time and wants to land in your drink or on your sandwich? They're so small, but lightning fast. They seem to poop even though they are small too! And they are present in great numbers at the moment. The fruit has been moved to the fridge and part is outside. Then the mosquito! Oh, I'm all covered by mosquito bumps. Normally, I almost never get stabbed, but this week I spent a night outside and a candle against the mosquitoes on the table, but they thought I was so nice or dirty, that my arms, legs and cheeks had to believe it. That itch, blood irritant. I had vinegar, and I rubbed it on the spots with a cotton ball. Now I certainly don't smell good anymore, but hey it helps and oh yes, you can never scratch, because then there seems to be a speck of dust that makes it more itchy, said Leco at RTL Boulevard. Not that I'm watching that program, but I zapped and Leco just said something about the mosquito! And then the wasp. Brbrbrbrbrbr I'm afraid of that. Say panic! Sit as still as possible and stay calm, but I can't! As soon as I see one, I'm gonna scream and run. You don't want to see or hear that hahahaha. It's to be ashamed of your death. On holidays also whole campsites shouted together. To the inheritance of hubby who then really decides “I'm not part of this.” I've been stabbed three times in my life. The first time on my eyelid, that was really very painful and annoying. The second time it was in my nightgown and I was stabbed on my back and the third time during a walk on my middle finger. You understand, I'm a bit of a drama queen, but without joking, on the one hand they are useful insects and on the other hand a serious problem if you are allergic or if you get such a thing in your mouth. Brbrbr shouldn't think about it. I am always happy when autumn starts again, although sometimes one wants to stay wintering, but by autumn everything is quiet again, well quiet, then Mrs. spider with hubby and kids often emerges again, but I don't find that scary.

help Ana Sophia
(i don't need yoors points) I would appreciate it if you could share or make a donation to this campaign, Let's help Ana Sophia Sequera: https://gofund.me/5cbe91bc  Ana Sophia Sequera Briceño is the daughter of Héctor Gabriel Sequera Herrera and Ana Cristina Briceño Toro, It is a 10-month-old infant, who presents with motor retardation and a heart disease diagnosed with: Persistence of the large ductus arteriosus, dilatation of the left cavities , tricuspid valve regurgitation and systematic arterial hypertension. Reason why, it requires medical treatment and a cardiac catheterization intervention for the closure of the ductus arteriosus, or in its defecation, traditional surgery. At present, the 10-month-old infant has the blood pressure of a 10-year-old girl and the effort exerted by her lungs can cause them to fail; in the same way, the aforementioned heart disease suggests an increase in the left chambers of the heart. which if not treated in time could deform the structures of the heart. please let us help this family venezolana to bring back happiness by helping their daughter NUMBER: +58 0414-4002952https://gofund.me/5cbe91bc LET'S HELP ANA SOPHIA Ayudemos Ana Sophia Sequera, organized by Hector Sequera - Ayudemos Ana Sophia Sequera, organized by Hector Sequera -
