Is Vaping a Sensible Alternative or Lucrative Trap?

Abstract

Sri Lakshmi Ajit

Despite these significant efforts, tobacco use continues to send 6 million individuals to the afterlife prematurely each year, making it the leading cause of preventable disease worldwide, owing in part to the quarter-century wait between smoking and the repercussions. According to the American Cancer Society, lung cancer is responsible for up to two million fatalities each year; smoking is responsible for 80% of lung cancer deaths, with small cell lung cancer accounting for even more (SCLC). Cardiovascular illness accounts for a third of the remaining tobacco-related deaths, followed by chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. On top of that, there are a slew of morbidities, including an increase in the risk of neurological illness, periodontal disease, and in utero developmental abnormalities of the foetal respiratory apparatus, brain, and cardiovascular system. Although cigarette smoking has decreased in high-income countries recently, the effect is muted on a worldwide basis.
