Latest research in Australia: Electronic cigarettes have far less damage to intestinal health than cigarettes

Recently, a paper published in the international authoritative medical journal "Nutrients" pointed out that e-cigarettes have much less damage to intestinal health than cigarettes. Cigarettes can disrupt the intestinal microbiota of smokers, induce obesity, enteritis, colon cancer and other diseases, and e-cigarettes do not alter the intestinal microbiota.

Imbalance of gut microbiota is a dangerous signal of impaired gut health, not only causing metabolic disorders, but also triggering various intestinal and pulmonary diseases. The study was led by multiple Australian universities such as the University of Sydney and the University of Sydney Technology, mainly exploring the impact of e-cigarettes on the gut microbiota of mice. Through 16 weeks of experiments and observations on mice, researchers confirmed that e-cigarettes do not alter the gut microbiome.

Cigarettes can cause imbalances in gut microbiota and a range of chronic intestinal diseases, so we all assume that e-cigarettes can have similar effects. However, during the research process, we did not observe changes in gut microbiota caused by e-cigarettes. This is quite surprising, "the authors wrote in their research paper.

In fact, as early as 2021, research from the University of Newcastle in the UK confirmed that e-cigarettes do not disrupt the gut microbiota. The study compared the different effects of cigarettes and e-cigarettes on the human gut microbiota and found that cigarettes significantly reduced the beneficial bacteria in the intestines of smokers (the absence of beneficial bacteria can cause obesity), and increased the harmful bacteria that can cause colon cancer. In contrast, there was no significant change in the gut microbiota of e-cigarette users, which is basically the same as that of non-smokers.

Our research shows that e-cigarettes have less damage to the gut microbiota than cigarettes. This will encourage more smokers to actively switch to e-cigarettes and reduce harm and quit smoking with the help of e-cigarettes, "said Dr. Christopher J Stewart, the lead author of the research paper.

The official website of the World Health Organization describes quitting smoking as "Quitting tobacco", which means quitting tobacco because the main harm of cigarettes - over 4000 chemicals and 69 carcinogens are produced during tobacco combustion. Electronic cigarettes do not contain tobacco burning processes and can reduce the harm of cigarettes by 95%. Multiple studies worldwide have confirmed that after smokers completely switch to e-cigarettes, their physical health is effectively improved.

There is no doubt that e-cigarettes can reduce harm. The problem is that factors such as morality, interests, and ideological limitations limit those who oppose e-cigarettes, making them invisible or even intentionally ignoring the advantages of e-cigarettes. "said Colin Mendelsohn, President of the Australian Tobacco Harm Reduction Association. In Australia, e-cigarettes containing nicotine are being regulated as drugs, which makes him very anxious.

The emergence of new technologies always arouses people's fear and suspicion. New things that are widely accepted today, such as coffee and refrigeration technology, have faced strong opposition when they were first introduced. But we should not be afraid of new technologies. "He said," The promotion of e-cigarettes in the UK has successfully reduced smoking rates, but we are adhering to the will to quit smoking law and refusing to accept the new smoking control model of reducing harm. This is too ironic.
