Specialists of the University of London Queen Mary said that the use of electronic steam generators greatly increases the likelihood of getting pneumonia. It’s all about the couple, which is a good breeding ground for bacteria.
The study was conducted both in humans and in mice. Scientists have found that the effect of wicking is similar to smoking of conventional cigarettes, which also increase the risk of pulmonary infections and diseases.
In particular, the bacterium pneumococcus adheres to the inner surface of the lungs. This result is not affected by the presence of nicotine in the couple. Thus, even the non-nicotine fluid for the steam generator is of great danger.
Scientists warn that it can not be considered a safe alternative to smoking – health is still severely harmed. At the same time, they noted that additional observations are required for full conclusions.
