A study by scientists at British American Tobacco has shown that e-cigarettes and tobacco heating products cause significantly less staining to teeth than conventional cigarettes. For the first time at BAT, scientists assessed and compared a novel e-cigarette (EC), a tobacco heating product (THP) and a conventional cigarette for their impact on teeth enamel staining.

March 14, 2018 A new lab-based study has shown that when airway cells damaged by cigarette smoke are exposed instead to glo vapor, the biological effects caused by smoke exposure are reversed. glo is British American Tobacco’s tobacco heating product (THP). It is designed to heat rather than burn tobacco, and the vapor produced has […]Continue Reading ...
Flavoring and additive ingredients in e-cigarettes may increase inflammation and impair lung function, according to new research. The study, published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology–Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology, also found that short-term exposure to e-cigarettes was enough to cause lung inflammation similar or worse than that seen in traditional cigarette […]Continue Reading ...
Electronic cigarettes (or e-cigarettes) are devices commonly powered by a battery that aerosolize liquid and chemical flavorants. These products have become popular among people of all ages, especially youth. Some users may think of e-cigarettes as a safe alternative to traditional cigarettes. However, according to the CDC, the aerosol that e-cigarette consumers breathe in and […]Continue Reading ...
A new study that looked at nicotine exposure of adolescent e-cigarette users, specifically those who use the ‘pod’ vaping devices (ie, Juul), found that levels of urinary cotinine, a byproduct of nicotine metabolism, were even higher than what has been reported among adolescent cigarette smokers. The findings, published in the journal Tobacco Control, underscore the […]Continue Reading ...
May 25, 2018 Researchers at Portland State University have developed methods for measuring levels of free-base nicotine in electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) liquids and vapor, the levels of which are associated with harshness upon inhalation of e-cigarette vapors and tobacco smoke. The study presents the results of analyses of 11 commercially available flavors of e-cigarette liquids […]Continue Reading ...
May 16, 2018 An analysis of federal data by University of Iowa researchers published in the Journal of the American Medical Association finds that more American adults have tried e-cigarettes, but the rate of current use appears to be declining. Wei Bao, assistant professor of epidemiology in the UI College of Public Health, analyzed national […]Continue Reading ...
March 14, 2018 Adolescents who smoke e-cigarettes are exposed to significant levels of potentially cancer-causing chemicals also found in tobacco cigarettes, even when the e-cigarettes do not contain nicotine, according to a study by UC San Francisco researchers. “Teenagers need to be warned that the vapor produced by e-cigarettes is not harmless water vapor, but […]Continue Reading ...
