The Doctors: Are E Cigarettes Better for You?
The Doctors TV show discussed “E-Cigarettes,” which are not actually cigarettes, but a vapor. Dr. Travis Stork asked the audience if they thought these cigarettes are a good or bad way to quit smoking.
The majority of the audience said they were bad. A study done at the University of Athens in Greece found that airway resistance increased for 10 minutes after smoking these cigarettes.
The Doctors: E Cigarettes Contain Nicotine
While these cigarettes are better for you than smoking an actual cigarette, they do contain some harmful ingredients. Nicotine, which increases blood pressure and heart rate, is found in the E-Cigarettes.
