While e-cigarettes are now being used as a “safe” alternative to cigarettes, as the “vaping” mechanism eliminates a lot of the smoke that builds up tar in the lungs, a new study has shown alarming links to a serious lung disease.
Because “flavorings” are used in this vaporized version of cigarettes, there is now deep concern in the medical community linking e-cigarettes to a disease called obliterative bronchiolitis, or “POPCORN LUNG”. In 2000, an investigation into the severe form of bronchitis being found in microwaveable popcorn factory workers, led the “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention” to conclude that the toxic chemical “Diacetyl” was responsible. Diacetyl was found in 39 of the most popular brands of flavored e-cigarettes! The Harvard School of Public Health found the link between e-cigarettes and Popcorn Lung, which was reported by “AOL News”.
The video you are about to watch below compares regular cigarettes to e-cigarettes. It is very important to watch this footage, and come to an educated decision about continuing to smoke e-cigarettes, given what we know and don’t know about this alternative. The bronchial symptoms, cited by “For The People”, of POPCORN LUNG include:
2. Dry cough
3. Abnormal shortness of breath
5. Weight loss
6. Night sweats,
Very often Popcorn Lung, an irreversible and often life-threatening disease, gets misdiagnosed. Although no longitudinal studies have yet been done, given how new e-cigarette smoking is, we do know that Popcorn lung can be devastating. Let us know your thoughts after watching the footage below.
