Vaporized Propylene Glycol, a Key Ingredient in Electronic Cigarettes, May Prevent Pneumonia, Influenza, and Other Respiratory Diseases
Date:11/2/2009

Inhalation of vaporized propylene glycol, the primary ingredient in the electronic cigarette cartridge, may prevent pneumonia, influenza, and other respiratory diseases. These findings are based on a recently re-discovered study conducted by Dr. Oswald Hope Robertson of the University of Chicago's Billings Hospital in 1942 on inhalation of vaporized propylene glycol in laboratory mice.

(PRWEB) November 2, 2009 -- The ingredients in most electronic cigarette cartridges manufactured today include propylene glycol, nicotine, and a flavoring. The 1942 study by Dr. Oswald Hope Robertson of the University of Chicago's Billings Hospital showed that Propylene glycol, the most prevalent ingredient in electronic cigarette cartridges, was found to possibly prevent pneumonia, influenza, and other respiratory diseases when vaporized and inhaled.

Additional studies in monkeys and other animals were undertaken to determine long-term effects, especially the potential for accumulation in the lungs. After a few months of treatment, no ill effects were discovered.

Now the electronic cigarette may not only help individuals to reduce and quit smoking regular cigarettes, but it also may help to prevent some of the respiratory diseases caused by the harmful “cancer sticks”. Additionally with the pandemic H1N1 influenza virus expected to cause a record number of deaths this season there is no better time for smokers to cut back or quit with the aid of the electronic cigarette.

Electronic cigarettes are a relatively new tool in the battle against cigarette smoking. A smoker can enjoy all the engrained habits of smoking; hand-to-mouth, throat hit, visual smoke, nicotine delivery, etc… with none of the negative effects of inhaling the dangerous smoke and 4000+ toxic chemicals created by smoking regular cigarettes.

While using electronic cigarettes as a smoking cessation device/method has not yet been evaluated by the FDA, several quit smoking non-profit organizations, like Action on Smoking and Health UK (ASH) an international antismoking & nonsmokers' rights organization have all but endorsed electronic cigarettes as a healthy and viable alternative to smoking.
