  Recently, the discussion on dab rigs has been continuously published in newspapers. Including the principle of dab rigs, whether dab rigs can help to quit smoking as advertised, the problems of dab rigs starting a business, etc., have all become the focus of public discussion. This week, the U.S. government announced plans to ban the sale of all flavored dab rigs to curb the trend of young people smoking dab rigs. The first step taken by the U.S. government in monitoring dab rigs is likely to have an important demonstration effect on other countries. This is because dab rigs is receiving more and more attention for its harm to young people around the world.

  According to statistics, in the United States, more than 3.6 million high school students took dab rigs in 2018, up 1.5 million from 2017. To attract young people, many dab rigs products offer a variety of flavors such as fruit, chocolate and cream. In China, water pipes online are also portrayed as trendy and young signs. dab rigs like "caramel popcorn", "blue cotton candy" and "vanilla cola" are full of new tastes.

  Although there is no accurate statistical data, the results of the 2018 China Adult Tobacco Survey released by the China Center for Disease Control and Prevention show that the majority of users of dab rigs are young people aged 15-24 years old, and 45.4% of users obtain dab rigs through the Internet. On short video platforms such as tremolo and clapper, dab rigs has rich promotional videos. For example, over 17 million people read about a Japanese dab rigs brand on trembles alone. It can be inferred from this that the prevalence of dab rigs among Chinese youth groups is rapidly increasing.

  In 2003, doctor Li Han invented the first domestic jet water pipes. After that, domestic dab rigs, like Internet products, experienced rapid iteration and became a new favorite in the investment field in recent years. For example, in April 2018, Aizoui won 300 million yuan in round A financing; In July 2019, Xiao Ye dab rigs won 30 million yuan in round A financing. During this period, at least 20 dab rigs companies have received more than 30 financing. As far as the product itself is concerned, its innovations are mainly in appearance, taste and taking a trendy name.

  Although many brands of dab rigs claim that dab rigs can help stop smoking, this is not the case. The biggest difference between dab rigs and ordinary smoke is that ordinary smoke is burnt and carcinogenic substances such as tar and carbon monoxide are produced during the burning process. Dab rigs is a kind of smoke generator, which generally does not contain the above two carcinogens.

  However, this does not mean that dab rigs must be healthy. although dab rigs do not contain carcinogenic substances such as tar and carbon monoxide, dabrigs still contain alcohols such as propylene glycol, which is harmful to health. More importantly, nicotine still exists in dab rigs, only in a different way. long-term smoking is harmful to the body but not beneficial.

  The world health organization has issued a report saying that there is insufficient evidence that lookah shop can help quit smoking. The most common nicotine replacement therapy in the world is to gradually reduce the nicotine intake of smokers, generally from high to low and gradually reduce. In fact, dab rigs smokers are not sure how much they have smoked. Therefore, dab rigs may increase nicotine intake.

  There is false propaganda in dab rigs, which is only one aspect of the dispute. Another important reason for public opinion to pay attention to dab rigs is the influence of dab rigs on teenagers. for many minors, dab rigs are regarded as representatives of fashion trends because of their online popularity and corporate publicity. In order to win the approval of the same age group, dab rigs smoking has also become a means to show one's personality.

  However, the reason why minors can easily purchase dab rigs is directly related to online sales. On the online shopping platform, the age of the buyer does not constitute a resistance to the transaction. Of course, dab rigs have not been included in the anti-smoking regulations promulgated in many places in public places. therefore, the lack of legislation constitutes a fundamental problem in controlling dab rigs.
