What is IQOS?
IQOS is a heated tobacco product developed by Philip Morris International. It was first introduced in Japan in 2014 and has since been launched in over 60 countries around the world.
How does IQOS work?
IQOS works by heating tobacco sticks to a temperature of around 350 degrees Celsius. This creates a vapor that the user can inhale. IQOS does not burn the tobacco, which means that it produces fewer harmful chemicals than traditional cigarettes.
Is IQOS less harmful than cigarettes?
IQOS is marketed as a less harmful alternative to cigarettes, but there is limited scientific evidence to support this claim. Some studies have shown that IQOS produces lower levels of harmful chemicals than cigarettes, but other studies have shown that it can still have negative health effects.
What are the risks of using IQOS?
IQOS is still a tobacco product and it is not risk-free. It contains nicotine, which is addictive, and it can expose users to harmful chemicals. Some of the potential health risks associated with using IQOS include:
- Nicotine addiction
- Lung cancer
- Heart disease
- Other respiratory problems
Should you use IQOS?
If you are considering using IQOS, it is important to talk to your doctor first. They can help you weigh the risks and benefits and decide if IQOS is right for you.
