Modern technology has changed the lifestyle of people and is still evolving. Internet of Things (IoT) emerged as a boon for the technological and virtual world, by connecting the electronic devices across the globe to send and receive data. The latest development in this industry is sensors in Internet of Things (IoT), which are co-efficient and eco-friendly in nature. Internet of Things (IoT) is a swiftly growing industry and has a potential to become huge in the future.
As a functionary body of the United Nations, the World Health Organization (WHO) exerts substantial influence in the making of health and medical policies across the globe. In that context, its vehement rejection of electronic cigarettes as “devices [which] pose threats to public health” comes as a surprise. An electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) or electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) is a battery operated device which simulates the experience of tobacco smoking without the inhalation of smoke. This device which is being reckoned as an alternative of conventional cigarettes emits vaporized nicotine which is inhaled by the user. The WHO’s outlook could prompt policymakers to ignore the possible health benefits of e-cigarettes in favor of stiffer regulations such as bans on indoor use, marketing, and sales to minors. The Organization has also expressed its fears about the rising concentration of the electronic cigarette market in the hands of the Big Tobacco. It is also alarmed by the rising popularity of these devices amongst teenagers.
