This new research again highlights the dangers of second hand smoke, meaning that not only are smokers damaging their own health, but significantly damaging the health of those around them.

Heavy concentrations of second-hand smoke, such as in cars, can lead to breathing problems within twenty minutes of exposure according to research by the University of Athens, the Hellenic Cancer Society in Greece and the Harvard School of Public Health.

Fifteen healthy participants were subjected to air heavily concentrated with smoke particulates within an exposure chamber simulating a bar or moving car. After twenty minutes of exposure to highly concentrated second-hand smoke, participants experienced near immediate physiologic changes, airway resistance and impedance.

Restricted areas such as cars and bars in foreign countries usually have high concentrations of fine particles which occur because of smoking. This forces non-smokers to inhale an extreme amount of particulates directly into their lungs.

The team at Nicolites are understandably interested by this news, Managing Director, Nikhil Nathwani comments on the research:

“This new research again highlights the dangers of second hand smoke, meaning that not only are smokers damaging their own health, but significantly damaging the health of those around them. Electronic cigarettes provide a safer alternative to tobacco cigarettes and can be smoked inside without disturbing those in the surrounding area.”

Nicolites is now the leading and most widely available brand of electric cigarette in the UK; they have formed business partnerships with many of the largest retailers to bring these wonderful innovations right on to the doorstep of every person in the country. Established in late 2007, Nicolites has grown into a multi-million pound company with international distribution networks and continues to grow at a phenomenal rate.
