Abstract

Background: Due to the exponential growth in teenage use of electronic cigarettes, it appears that school aged children are starting to smoke at younger ages. It is frightening how many people are using electronic cigarettes and how sparse data exist. In this systematic review, we will illuminate the differences between electronic cigarettes and traditional cigarettes. With the rise in popularity of electronic cigarettes, we will describe the specific effects of electronic cigarettes on the cardiac and pulmonary systems. We sought to understand the long-term effect of using electronic and traditional cigarettes on cardiac and pulmonary systems.

Methods: After searching through various articles on Pubmed 38 articles were thoroughly looked into. We narrowed the articles down to 12 articles that focused on the differences between electronic and traditional cigarettes.

Results: The long-term effects of smoking traditional cigarettes have been researched extensively, so we will use this research to compare the use of electronic cigarettes and traditional cigarettes. By doing this, the paper will determine which of the two is worse for the body. Findings: We found that smoking electronic cigarettes are less harmful than traditional cigarettes, but it is still not safe for use.

Conclusions: Put your conclusions here: In conclusion, smoking both traditional cigarettes and electronic cigarettes are not good for your lungs. Traditional cigarettes are filled with thousands of chemicals and severely damage your lungs. Electronic cigarettes have harsh flavorings and are much easier to smoke. This makes them more convenient and discreet to smoke. Neither of these options are safe for use, so the wisest decision for someone to make is to not start using electronic or traditional cigarettes.
