An Oncotarget Published Research on Effects of E-Cigarettes on Oral Health

This national Institute of health funded research showing the effects of e-cigarettes to gum tissues was done at the University of Rochester with Irhan Rahman a professor in Environmental Medicine as its head. According to the researchers, the study has a huge significance since most young people, and cigar smokers opt for e-cigarettes in the belief that they have less negative health effects.

Many studies have looked at the adverse effects of cigarette smoking on health, but few of them look at electronic cigarettes. However, a study published on Oncotarget showed that e- cigarettes cause damage to gum tissue. Oncotarget is a medical journal that focuses on Oncology and topics such as cardiology and pharmacology. This peer-reviewed journal was started back in the year 2000 and has open access.

The research was done by exposing the 3-D human gum of a person who had never smoked to the vapor of the e-cigarettes. E- Cigarettes usually have a fluid containing nicotine, which is mixed with flavors and when lighted, the smoker inhales the vapor. The study found out that the vapor from e-cigarettes caused inflammatory proteins to be released by cells. In turn, the cells became stressed which resulted to oral diseases. The study also found out that the frequency and duration of smoking had a positive correction to the damage caused to the cells.

The study also looked at the flavorings added to the e-cigarettes and whether they brought about any oral diseases, and they found out that they did. Mr. Fawad Jayed, a contributor to the research, noted that different flavorings had different levels of damage to the same cells. He went on to add that just like regular cigarettes, e-cigarettes contain nicotine, which is known to cause gum disease.

The researchers conclude that more studies in the area need to be done so that comparative studies can be done. It is only through such studies that all the health effects of e-cigarettes can be realized. Mr. Rahman also adds that manufacturers of e-cigarettes should disclose the materials used in the manufacture of e-cigarettes. This way, consumers will know the harmful effects of what they are consuming. Learn more about Oncotarget at Research Gate.
