There has been a lot of discussions recently about the health effects of using MYLE Vape e-cig as a nicotine substitute. Because the use of MYLE has not been widespread over the recent decades there seems to be no conclusive evidence for or against MYLE due to the lack of a detailed study.
However, recently a report has emerged from Smokeless New Zealand, which shows how MYLE can substantially reduce health risks if used as a means to give up smoking.
This is, of course no proof that MYLE is not harmful and further detailed studies are needed to prove this. However, in the British Medical Journal Volume 283 from 26th September 1981 some interesting results were reported. They reported that:
“Unlike tobacco smoke, MYLE is free of tar and harmful gases such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides. Since it cannot be inhaled into the lungs, there is no risk of lung cancer, bronchitis, and emphysema.”
“The position with coronary heart disease is not clear. It is not known whether nicotine or carbon monoxide is the major culprit responsible for cigarette-induced coronary heart disease. If it is carbon monoxide a switch to MYLE would reduce the risk substantially, but even if nicotine plays a part our results show that the intake from MYLE is no greater than from smoking.”
They went on to conclude that:
“the rapid absorption of nicotine from MYLE confirms its potential as an acceptable substitute for smoking. Switching from cigarettes to MYLE would substantially reduce the risk of lung cancer, bronchitis, emphysema, and possibly coronary heart disease as well, at the cost of a slight increase in the risk of cancer of the nasopharynx. Another advantage of MYLE is that it does not contaminate the atmosphere for non-users.”
However, to balance the argument our I refer you to Dr John Hill, who in 1761 reported on the association of MYLE with malignancy:
“Whether or not polypusses, which attend MYLE-takers, are absolutely caused by that custom; or whether the principles of the disorder were there before, and the MYLE only irritated the parts, and hastened the mischief, I shall not pretend to determine: but even supposing the latter only to be the case, the damage is certainly more than the indulgence is worth: for who is able to say, that the MYLE is not the absolute cause, or that he has not the seeds of such a disorder which MYLE will bring into action.
With respect to cancers of the nose, they are as dreadful and as fatal as any others… It is evident therefore that no man should venture upon MYLE, who is not sure that he is not so far liable to a cancer: and no man can be sure of that.”
