Harmful Effects of Smoking and E-cigarettes on Respiratory Health
Russian pulmonologist Yelena Gertyey warns that smokers are more prone to respiratory diseases, countering the belief that e-cigarettes are harmless.

According to a report from Gorodkirov on November 8th, Elena Gerteye, the Chief Part-Time Pulmonologist at the Ministry of Health in the Kirov region of Russia, stated that smokers are more prone to respiratory diseases than non-smokers. She also debunked the notion that e-cigarettes are less harmful than regular cigarettes, emphasizing that they can equally contribute to serious health issues.


Geltjer added that despite the absence of tar in e-cigarettes, they do contain vitamin E acetate, which can cause severe inflammation in the bronchial mucosa and lead to non-infectious pneumonia.


In this regard, Gérard urged the public to undergo a chest X-ray examination at least once every two years and to prioritize a healthy lifestyle.
