1. Pregnant women

According to relevant studies, nicotine may damage the brain development of the fetus in utero; It can also damage children's bodies. Animal experiments show that nicotine exposure in the air can damage the development of lungs and brain


Although e-cigarettes have certain advantages as an alternative product, nicotine is still harmful. Therefore, pregnant women should avoid using tobacco products, including e-cigarettes


2. Minors

I believe everyone has read the news that e-cigarettes are sought after by students around the campus; The packaging is gorgeous, all kinds of flavors can breathe, which is cool in the eyes of children


But we should know that electronic cigarettes are harmful to children Nicotine will damage children's lung health. In addition, star propylene glycol in tobacco oil can easily cause discomfort in children's lungs and respiratory tract. Therefore, minors should not and should not use e-cigarettes


Sales of e-cigarette products to minors under the age of 18 have been banned at home and abroad; In addition, online sales of e-cigarettes have been banned in China, and domestic e-cigarette entities will also check whether they are under 18


3. Allergic

In addition to nicotine, the main components of e-cigarettes are propylene glycol "PG" and glycerin "VG". VG is mostly derived from plants, also known as plant glycerin, and has high safety. However, most of PG is synthetic, which may cause allergic reactions. Many people have uncomfortable throats, even itching, dizziness and nausea after using it. At this time, it should be noted that the cigarette oil containing PG can no longer be used Of course, there is pure VG tobacco oil, but excessive absorption of VG by the human body will lead to increased blood sugar, so it is recommended that allergic people not use e-cigarettes


4. Patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases

Earlier, there was a debate about whether e-cigarettes are harmful. In these studies, a research group in California found that e-cigarettes may have an impact on heart health. Nicotine in e-cigarettes can damage vascular endothelium, thereby increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease


The damaged vascular endothelium is difficult to repair itself, which is also an important cause of arteriosclerosis and other diseases. Therefore, people with cardiovascular diseases should not use e-cigarettes
