A top scientist said synthetic alcohol called alcosynth will replace real alcohol in just 10 or 20 years.
Professor David Nutt, a former government drugs adviser of Imperial College London, said the man-made liquor will have the same intoxicating effect on us but won’t harm our health.
He also believes that cigarettes and tobacco will be entirely replaced by e-cigarettes.
The notion of e-cigarettes is already proving to be particularly popular amongst people who are looking to quit smoking.
It does not burn tobacco or carbon monoxide, which already makes it safer than smoking tobacco cigarettes as these are the two most damaging substances in a cigarette.
As more people start to realize that the smoke from cigarettes can harm not only the smokers themselves but also anyone around them (via secondhand smoke), they would possibly make the shift from cigarettes to other alternatives. People in many countries, especially in the Scandinavian region, are trying to eliminate cigarettes from their lives and maybe shifting to the traditional way via the consumption of snus. This can pave the way for history to repeat itself, like back in the day when the best way to consume tobacco was thought to be by chewing it. With a variety of cigarette alternatives at hand, including e-cigarettes, it would not come as a surprise if cigarette consumption started to make its way downhill.
Due to e-cigarettes giving people the opportunity to heat liquid that can come in a variety of different flavors, more businesses are starting to sell empty vape cartridges that they have received from a wholesaler to ensure that their customers can fill the cartridge with their chosen flavor.
To many people, this already starts to sound more appealing, and as it has been known to be safer than tobacco products, it won’t be long until all smokers have turned to this practice in order to lead a healthier life.
You see, smoking can cause numerous health conditions like cancer, heart disease, stroke, lung disease, diabetes, and even a condition called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which could have a debilitating effect on someone’s health, and in the most drastic of circumstances could even lead to death.
So, why wouldn’t people turn to e-cigarettes, especially if it means these health problems are avoided?
It’s only a matter of time until we see if Professor Nutt’s prediction will come true.
