E-cig­a­rettes could be ad­dic­tive

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure - RELAXNEWS

While elec­tronic cig­a­rettes are of­ten seen by many as a way to wean off tra­di­tional to­bacco cig­a­rettes, new re­search sug­gests that the “e” ver­sion may be just as ad­dic­tive as its smoky coun­ter­part.

E-cig­a­rettes do not burn to­bacco, but they do in­clude nico­tine, flavour­ings and other sub­stances. Nico­tine could po­ten­tially make them highly ad­dic­tive, But not all nico­tine is cre­ated equal, and pre­vi­ous stud­ies had not de­ter­mined what kind of nico­tine the e-cig­a­rettes con­tained.

In a new study ap­pear­ing in the Amer­i­can Chem­i­cal So­ci­ety jour­nal Chem­i­cal Re­search in Tox­i­col­ogy, re­searchers set out to de­ter­mine the pre­dom­i­nant type of nico­tine found in com­mer­cial sam­ples of the liq­uids used with e-cig­a­rettes.
