According to a foreign media Health Day News report, recently, Patricia Folan, director of the Tobacco Control Center at Northwell Health Center in Big Neck, New York, suggested that if you want to learn how addicted teenagers use Juul As with other Pod-based e-cigarettes, please communicate with the school teacher.
According to Fulan, teachers have reported that once the school confiscates the student’s Juul, students will beg for it, because not using e-cigarettes will make them very uncomfortable. This may indicate that the withdrawal symptoms of e-cigarettes seem to be very serious for teenagers.
A new evidence review has concluded that many aspects of pod-based e-cigarettes like Juul are designed to make people addicted to nicotine, which is not surprising.
Andy Tan, an assistant researcher at the Chenhe School of Public Health at Harvard University in Boston, said that the way they provide nicotine represents a technological advancement that allows people to absorb large doses of nicotine more comfortably.
In addition, the researchers concluded that the way these e-cigarettes are designed and sold make them very attractive to children.
Tan said: “More work needs to be done to ensure that there is a comprehensive and thoughtful policy so that e-cigarette products in any form are not controlled by young people.”
Juul Labs responded that its device is not suitable for use by minors, and its e-cigarette is designed to help smokers get rid of traditional tobacco.
The company said in a statement: “Providing nicotine effects and experience similar to combustible cigarettes is essential to facilitate adult smokers’ transition from combustible uses. Our clinical studies have shown that the nicotine absorption curve of the Juul system is comparable to combustible Cigarettes compete, but lower than combustible cigarettes.”
Researchers pointed out that since the launch of e-cigarettes based on cartridges, the use of e-cigarettes among young people has greatly increased, which prompted the Secretary of Health to declare that young people’s e-cigarette use is an epidemic.
Researchers found that within three years of Juul’s launch in 2015, approximately one in ten teenagers and young people aged 15 to 21 have tried the device at least once.
To figure out why Juul and similar devices are so successful, Tan and his colleagues reviewed 35 research papers on pod-based e-cigarettes between 2015 and 2019.
Tan said that e-cigarettes like Juul contain higher levels of nicotine salt in their liquid, rather than free nicotine. Nicotine salt is less acidic than conventional nicotine. Tan said: “Compared with the earlier version of the electronic cigarette, its irritation and harshness have been greatly improved.”
This allows users to perform e-cigarettes more frequently, thereby exposing themselves to higher amounts of nicotine over time. This also makes it easier for teenagers to use Juul and similar products.
Tan said: “Young people who are experimenting with e-cigarettes are less affected by the irritation of inhaling vapors. Because they are exposed to higher levels of nicotine, they are also more likely to develop nicotine dependence or addiction.”
Forlan said that smoking with refill e-cigarettes is very comfortable and people will not feel uncomfortable with nicotine.
According to Fran, a 23-year-old patient who switched to e-cigarettes from smoking reported that he was unable to quit e-cigarettes compulsorily. He needed to keep smoking to relieve his addiction. One of the side effects of excessive nicotine smoking It makes people sick and vomiting.
Tan continued, Pod-based devices such as Juul usually look like computer flash drives, and their sleek and compact design attracts young people to be cautious and stylish. Contrary to traditional TV, radio or print advertising, Juul and its competitors also tend to rely on social media for marketing.
“Young people prefer to use social media platforms than people of other age groups because they use social media platforms more often.”
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration completed another ban on refill e-cigarettes in January, which only prohibits the sale of flavored refill e-cigarettes.
Tan believes that e-cigarette manufacturers have figured out a way to circumvent the ban, which is disposable e-cigarettes. Disposable e-cigarettes (brands such as Puff Bar and Mojo Vape) have a variety of attractive flavors and exploit obvious loopholes in the FDA ban.
The cost of disposable items is about $10 and contains enough e-liquid to hold about 300 puffs. Used equipment was thrown into the trash can.
Tan said of the attempt to control e-cigarettes: “This is basically a form of mole-killing. If this product is banned, there will be another product that exploits the policy loophole.”
A review of the new evidence was published online in JAMA Pediatrics on June 1.
