Electronic cigarettes are everywhere, even in the news, when publications are not inundated with daily articles about the current coronavirus outbreak. However, there are plenty of horror stories that might put you off vaping in Abu Dhabi. Having an Abu Dhabi vape is not a dangerous trend, and it has been a useful way to help a lot of people quit smoking cigarettes to improve their health. Even though e-cigarettes may not be entirely harm-free, they have a significantly lesser amount of emissions in the vapor compared to cigarette smoke. Here are the reasons why your Abu Dhabi vape is not as dangerous as a lot of media outlets portray it to be. A University of Dundee study funded by the British Heart Foundation suggested that vaping in Abu Dhabi may be less harmful to your blood vessels compared to smoking cigarettes. When a traditional smoker gives up tobacco and switches to an Abu Dhabi vape, during the first month, the stiffness in their arteries and blood pressure start to improve. Professor Jeremy Pearson, Associate Medical Director at the British Heart Foundation, said, “Just because e-cigarettes may be less harmful than tobacco, it does not mean they are entirely safe. We know they contain significantly fewer of the harmful chemicals, which can cause diseases related to smoking, but we still do not know the long-term impact on the heart and circulation, or other aspects of health. E-cigarettes and vaping should never be taken by people who don’t already smoke but could be a useful tool to help people to stop smoking completely. Stopping smoking is the single best thing you can do for your health.” This is because tobacco-related diseases have skyrocketed, and there are hundreds of thousands of deaths a year because of lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and coronary heart disease. Martin Dockrell, Tobacco Control Program Lead at Public Health England, said, “People might be surprised at how much easier it is to quit with an electronic cigarette. We know that e-cigarettes are probably not completely safe, but that is not the issue. The question is, are e-cigarettes safer than the alternative? It is really important that smokers understand how much safer e-cigarettes are, compared to smoking.” Since 2017, all devices for vaping in Abu Dhabi and e-juices need to be notified to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency before they can be marketed and sold to the public. There are also stricter regulations surrounding warnings and labels on all products. Several ingredients, including colourings, taurine, and caffeine are banned. The strength of nicotine in e-juices has also been reduced. This is because nicotine is very addictive while having an Abu Dhabi vape, and the goal is to gradually lower your intake until you no longer rely on the chemical at all.
