Does the Electronic Cigarette Create Problems for people who have difficulty breathing?
by David McPherson
I am concerned about the electronic cigarette and the vapors that are exhaled. Will it affect my health?
I am registered disabled. I was involved in a serious car crash which left me, amongst other things with a ruptured diaphragm.
I have difficulty breathing because of this and my lung capacity is only 59%. Does anyone know what medical problems I would possibly suffer if I was in a room and in close proximity to someone using one of these devises? I am a non smoker.
According to the manufacturer of the e-cig, the vapour that is exhaled is water vapour.
I cannot see how this would be a problem for you. But I am not an expert on these devices and I do not support their use in the public domain.
Since the tobacco companies withheld information about the harmful smoking effects on the body I find it hard to trust other commercial enterprises that are trying to market a smoking product.
All commercial enterprises know there is a LOT of money to be made here....
I would love to hear from some respiratory experts about this.
