Smoking versus Vaping:
In India, the government is skeptical about legalizing vaping. However studies in the west show that vaping is 95 percent less harmful than smoking tobacco based cigarette. Recently in the US
The Food and Drug Administration announced a roadmap to reduce deaths from tobacco, and tobacco-related disease. According to the body, more than 480,000 deaths in the US are caused by tobacco every year. The FDA in the United States wants people to switch to a healthier alternative like vaping. The greatest health hazard of cigarettes is the smoke that it produces, it also contains harmful chemicals like cyanide, carbon monoxide and methanol. These primarily affect the heart and arteries. Vaping doesn’t not contain any of the harmful chemicals, experts also believe that through vaping the physiological need of nicotine reduces as body undergoes a, weaning-off effect. Vaping also doesn’t leave the foul smell and taste of burnt tobacco.
