Comparison of burning and heating tobacco regarding emissions, exposure, biological effects and risks of associated chemicals

About the position:

  • Worldwide Cigarette smoking, due to the pyrolysis and combustion of tobacco is an important source of exposure of the airways to different harmful chemicals.
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) as well as lung cancer are leading causes of morbidity and mortality .
