Dr Tariq Drabu Discusses the impact of Electronic Cigarettes in 2014 and the future ahead


(PRWEB) April 15, 2014

Dr Tariq Drabu is a well known Manchester dentist and oral surgeon with over twenty five years dentistry experience. Dr Tariq Drabu was born and educated in Manchester and graduated from Manchester University as one of the youngest ever dentists at the age of twenty one. He has worked at some of the largest and busiest dental hospitals in Saudi Arabia and is the owner of the successful Langley Dental Practice in Manchester. Dr Tariq Drabu is also the Clinical Lead Dentist for CATS at NHS Heywood Middleton and Rochdale. He also teaches oral surgery to postgraduate dentists.

Dr Tariq Drabu was discussing an article published on the Denistry Today website about how e-cigarettes may not be an upgrade to ordinary cigarettes.

Dr Tariq Drabu, in Manchester, said, “There has been so much research conducted on cigarette smoking and the effects on oral health. Over the years, dentists have learned that cigarette smoke can cause tooth discolouration, can increase the build-up of plaque and tartar, and increases the risk of gum disease. It is also believed that smoking can increase the risk of oral cancer. The problem is that electronic cigarettes are still relatively new and therefore there isn’t as much information to determine the impact these devices have on oral health.”

<a href="http://ecigbrandstarterkit.com/e-cig-the-smart-alternative” rel=”nofollow” trackinglink=”http://www.langleydentalpractice.com/tariq-drabu-nhs-prices.php”>Dr Tariq Drabu went on to say, “The Denistry Today website (published on the 10th of January 2014 in the Denistry website – see link above) shows there have been some signs that electronic cigarettes do offer some benefits, such as they don’t give off an odour. Therefore, those using them don’t have stale cigarette breath, and they also don’t seem to cause discolouration of the teeth. However, that is all we know at the moment. As these are relatively new and there hasn’t been that much research concluded, no one can say how they will impact oral health moving forward.”

In closing, Dr Tariq Drabu said, “We would like to believe that there is a safer alternative to smoking and thousands of people are turning to electronic cigarettes because they don’t contain the toxins that tobacco have. Many of the patients I have spoken to that are using electronic cigarettes are doing so to help them give up smoking all together. But until we can find evidence to the fact that electronic cigarettes are safe on oral health, we cannot say that they are an improvement over ordinary cigarettes.”

Hawaii Senator Calls for Cell Phone Radiation Warning Labels on Cell Phones


San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 20, 2014

To raise awareness of cell phone radiation, D-Sen. Josh Green of Kona, Ka‘u introduced Senate Bill SB 2571, a measure calling for cell phones sold in Hawaii to come with a prominent health warning — similar to what smokers see on the sides of cigarette packages to warn them of danger.

Sen. Green not only wants people to think about that electromagnetic radiation but also to change their cell phone habits because of it.

Green, who chairs the Health Committee, said he introduced the bill because he thinks consumers need to be directed to radiation warnings already listed within the device.

The original version of Senate Bill SB 2571 would have required the label to read, “This device emits electromagnetic radiation, exposure to which may cause brain cancer. Users, especially children and pregnant women, should keep this device away from the head and body.”

Green said he took the language from the warning within his iPhone. He said he is open to the size of the label being reduced. In it’s current form, Senate Bill SB 2571 would require cellphones sold in Hawaii to contain a warning label covering nearly a third of the back of the device.

The city of San Francisco adopted a similar cellphone “right-to-know” law several years ago. But the city last year abandoned the law in a legal settlement because of opposition from the wireless industry being against it.

Green said the lawsuit shouldn’t deter the state from seeking similar measures.

The bill doesn’t reference any specific scientific studies that show a risk from cellphone use, but does say consumers should “be made aware of the potential health dangers that have been linked to the electromagnetic radiation emitted by cellular telephones.

Senate Bill SB 2571 has already passed out of the Senate Health Committee and could be heard next by the Consumer Protection Committee in the next 30 days.

John Coates Founded RF Safe in 1998 long before most were aware of any risk from non-ionizing radiation. RF Safe specializes is reducing exposure to cell phone radiation by offering several innovative smartphone accessories to make using a cell phone safer.

Coates said, “The perfect combination for cell phone radiation safety is using an RF Safe Air-tube Headset and Flip Case Radiation Shield. The air tube headset lets users talk privately or enjoy listening to music without exposing their brain to microwave radiation. Equally important is the flip case that provides a shield between the user and cell phone whenever the front of the phone is facing them with cover closed- even when talking normally with the phone to their ear.”

RF Safe claims using an air-tube headset is the safest way to use a cell phone when speaker phone or texting isn’t an option.

“Ordinary headsets use a wire to deliver sound to the earpiece and may also deliver electromagnetic radiation directly to your head into your ear,” says Coates.

RF Safe’s Air-tube headset technology utilizes a state-of-the-art enhanced sound chamber which delivers crystal clear acoustic live sound through an air-filled wireless tube (similar to a doctor’s stethoscope). RF Safe is debunking the myth that safer isn’t as much fun. By replacing the wire found on ordinary headsets with patented acoustic air tube technology, the RF Safe headset reduces RF exposure to the head and increases the pleasure of listening to one’s favorite music.

The RF Safe headset allows cell phone users to experience live acoustic sound without any electrical components or radiation in their ears.
