Smokers at Greater Risk of Hearing Loss

Smokers are at a greater risk of hearing loss, according to a study. "These findings suggest that these legislative changes could be helpful in reducing the appeal of smoking and perhaps contribute towards changing attitudes around smoking".

"That's why the city council is offering lots of leisure opportunities to enable people to use exercise to help them quit and stop smoking long-term".

Lagan Valley MLA Robbie Butler has backed Cancer Focus Northern Ireland's call to local smokers to stub out their cigarettes and become "Proud Quitters".

Last July, a study published in the British Medical Journal found that e-cigarette users were indeed more likely than non-users to attempt to quit smoking-and be more successful at doing so.

Under-18s are nearly three times more likely to use e-cigarettes than adults, according to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

What's more, she has concerns about the type of hearing test used (a simple pass/fail test at a single frequency) which she said is "not the optimal way to measure hearing loss". "Negative coverage in the media has led to a misconception that vaping is unsafe, when the reality is that e-cigarettes have the potential to reduce the harm from tobacco caused to smokers, those around them and the wider society".

E-cigarettes are inhalable aerosols which heat a solution containing nicotine.

"E-cigarettes could indeed provide more population benefit if they were more effective as a cessation tool", Soneji said.

A spokesperson said: "This year's No Smoking Day message is about being "Proud to be a Quitter" which is set to inspire smokers to use No Smoking Day as the day they pledge to stop smoking". But now a new and novel effect of the habit has been discovered. Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in a statement that vaping devices are by far the most common source of experimentation with tobacco products among children. But half of all long-term smokers will die as a result of their smoking if they don't quit.

Michael Bloomberg, the majority owner of Bloomberg LP, parent of Bloomberg News, provides philanthropic support to anti-smoking campaigns and other health initiatives.
