Counter question to clarify if it was Makruh or Haram and Mufti Sahib replied, "It would be Makrooh e Tahrimi, and Allah knows best"

Vaping risk for elderly as pneumonia link revealed

8 February 2018

Vaping is dangerous for the elderly because it increases the risk of deadly pneumonia, new research suggests.
A study found vapour from electronic cigarettes could be as bad as traditional tobacco or even vehicle exhaust at sticking harmful bacteria to the airways, increasing chances of the inflammatory lung condition.

Tests on both humans and mice by Queen Mary University of London found the effect was present in both nicotine and non-nicotine e-cigarettes.

The research examined the effects of vaping on a molecule produced by the cells that line the airways called PAFR (platelet-activating factor receptor), which previous research has shown helps stick bugs associated with pneumonia to the nose, throat and lungs.

The team studied the cells lining the nose of 17 regular e-cigarette users one hour after vaping, and found the PAFR levels had tripled compared to normal levels.

They suggested that people at high risk of pneumonia consider using nicotine patches or gum as alternative means of giving up traditional cigarettes.



Professor Jonathan Grigg, who led the research, said: “Together, these results suggest that vaping makes the airways more vulnerable to bacteria sticking to airway lining cells.

“If this occurs when a vaper gets exposed to the pneumococcal bacterium, this could increase the risk of infection.

“Some people may be vaping because they think it is totally safe, or in an attempt to quit smoking, but this study adds to growing evidence that inhaling vapour has the potential to cause adverse health effects.”

Pneumonia is the sixth biggest cause of death in the UK, killing 29,000 people a year with deaths mainly occurring in older people and children and babies under 10 years.

Around 220,000 people receive a diagnosis of pneumonia each year, including, last year, Jeremy Clarkson, a smoker, who said he nearly died from the condition.

The good thing about having a manager at work who smokes regularly is that when you take 5-10 minutes out for salah 2-3 times a day they won't say anything to you.

Funny how they go to meet their killer whilst others go to meet their maker!

E-cigarettes can damage your DNA and increase your risk of CANCER, study reveals

They’re often portrayed as safer alternatives to cigarettes, but a new study has revealed that electronic cigarettes may be more dangerous than thought.

Researchers from the University of Minnesota have revealed that vaping can damage the DNA in your mouth, which in turn, increases your risk of cancer.

Dr Silvia Balbo, who led the study, said: “It's clear that more carcinogens arise from the combustion of tobacco in regular cigarettes than from the vapor of e-cigarettes.

”However, we don't really know the impact of inhaling the combination of compounds produced by this device.
“Just because the threats are different doesn't mean that e-cigarettes are completely safe.”

In the study, five e-cigarette users provided saliva samples before and after a 15-minute vaping session.

The researchers analysed these samples for chemicals that are known to damage DNA, and also assessed DNA damage in the cells in the volunteers’ mouths.

The results revealed that the levels of three DNA-damaging compounds - formaldehyde, acrolein and methylglyoxal - increased in the saliva after vaping.

And compared with people who don't vape, four of the five e-cigarette users showed increased DNA damage related to acrolein exposure.

This type of damage, called a DNA adduct, occurs when toxic chemicals react with DNA.
Worryingly, if the cell does not repair the damage, it could lead to cancer, according to the researchers.

The team now plans to replicate the study on a larger scale, to see how the level of DNA adducts differs between e-cigarette users and regular cigarette users.

Dr Balbo said: “Comparing e-cigarettes and tobacco cigarettes is really like comparing apples and oranges. The exposures are completely different.

“We still don't know exactly what these e-cigarette devices are doing and what kinds of effects they may have on health, but our findings suggest that a closer look is warranted."
