  • The Glo device was tested by its manufacturer British American Tobacco
  • It heats tobacco instead of burning it, so doesn’t produce smoke toxicants

New ‘smokeless’ tobacco cigarettes have been hailed a safer alternative to traditional smoking. Now scientists have tested leading product Glo and found it produces 90 percent less toxic substances than cigarettes. E-cigarettes contain a liquid form of nicotine that is heated into vapour to be inhaled, avoiding the harm caused by tobacco smoke.

But in ‘heat-not-burn’ products such as the Glo, the vapour passes through a bit of tobacco near the tip that imparts flavour in a bid to appeal to cigarette-lovers.
Because the devices heat tobacco as opposed to burning, it does not produce smoke or the toxic substances found in conventional cigarette smoke.
