Nicotine confusion on No Smoking Day

Smoking Could Be Damaging Your Hearing, Research Reveals
In the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research, the team of Dr. Huanhuan Hu, lead author of the study, evaluates the increased risk of hearing loss in a range of 20 to 60%.
Their study showed a greater risk of hearing loss among current smokers compared with people who had never picked up a cigarette. Smoking can lead to people becoming deaf.
A 2017 study found that almost a quarter of adult cigarette smokers used e-cigarettes to quit. "Smoking is still a leading cause of fatal fires, according to data released by the London Fire Brigade for national 'No Smoking Day".At a London Fire Brigade event on Wednesday, held at the Upper Street station, officers also offered advice on fireproofing houses. Participants were tracked for up to eight years.
E-cigarettes have become the most popular stop smoking aid, and people who use them with the help of local stop smoking services are more likely to quit successfully.
'On the other hand, e-cigarettes may facilitate cigarette smoking initiation and confer substantial harm to adolescents and young adults once they are introduced to nicotine'.
The longer that a person smokes, the higher they are at risk for developing for high frequency and low-frequency hearing loss. One incident involved an elderly woman who had to go to hospital."She had a major fire after falling asleep with a cigarette lit", Mr Lambert said."The sofa caught fire, the curtains, half her room in fact."We'd actually fitted a smoke alarm for her six weeks earlier as well, and had a frank discussion with her about fire safety".
Alex Clark, executive director of Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives Association, an e-cigarette industry lobby group, called the study's results "surprising", given government studies showing an overall decline in smoking.
He also said product standards are needed to reduce the levels of toxins in e-cigarette fluid. But now a new and novel effect of the habit has been discovered.
'E-cigarettes will likely cause more public health harm than public health benefit unless ways can be found to substantially decrease the number of adolescents and young adults who vape and increase the number of smokers who use e-cigarettes to successfully quit smoking, ' Soneji said. In October, the FDA addressed youth use of e-cigarettes and other electronic nicotine-delivery systems (ENDS) through its "The Real Cost" campaign.
"While we continue to encourage innovation of potentially less harmful forms of nicotine delivery for now addicted adult smokers, we can all agree no child should be using any nicotine-containing product", he said.
