A new Indian report about Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS), conjointly referred to as e-cigarettes, uncovered that they are far from being noxious when weighed up against flammable smokes and will prove to be a perfect fill-in for smoking.
The report was made public in the Indian Journal of Clinical Practice and a systematic evaluation of scientific literature was carried out by Prof R.N Sharan, given assistance by his peers at the North Eastern Hill University, Shillong. It examined the death-dealing substances present in the nicotine. Not to mention, other obnoxious elements such as the likes of metal ions processed during the inhalation of cigarettes and e-cigarettes.
The group of professionals assembled by Prof R.N Sharan suggested that tobacco-related problems have not displayed any signs of reduction throughout the years.
