IQOS and Other Heat-Not-Burn Devices
The smoke from the youth vaping epidemic hasn’t cleared yet, and tobacco companies are rolling out what may be the next big thing in nicotine delivery.To get more news about iqos, you can visit hitaste official website.
Instead of using an e-liquid like Juul or other e-cigarettes, new heat-not-burn devices, or HNB, such as Philip Morris’ IQOS heating systems smolder tobacco leaf at high temperatures and use vaping-type chemicals to turn nicotine into a vapor that users inhale.
Tobacco researchers and anti-smoking advocates worry that this new generation of tobacco products may pose additional health threats to a generation of teens who have never used tobacco.
“Philip Morris claims its IQOS device is neither smoke nor vapor. Oh, that must mean it’s really healthy! But in fact, it’s both smoke and vapor,” Dr. Robert Jackler told Drugwatch.
Jackler is chair of the Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He is also a co-founder of Stanford Research into the Impact of Tobacco Advertising and has published several research articles on tobacco marketing.
Researchers and health advocates warn that heat-not-burn devices may pose a new threat to teens and young adults in a way that mirrors the teen vaping epidemic. A rise in teen vaping coincided with e-cigarette Juul’s explosive rise in sales. Critics point to similarities in marketing and design between Juul and IQOS.
“IQOS did everything Juul did and more,” Jackler said. “America’s sleeping when it comes to heat-not-burn, that’s the next wave.”
