Filipino smokers begin to switch to electronic devices
Using heat instead of combustion, the process eliminates the creation of tar which is the cancer-causing by product of smoking cigarettes, said MOK marketing manager in the Philippines Cax Mayuga. MOK is a new brand of heated tobacco device which is now available in the country. “The MOK experience is as close to smoking one can get, without actually setting fire to tobacco. All MOK devices uses ‘heat-not-burn’ technology, which significantly reduces the production and exposure to chemicals found in a conventional cigarette. Using the MOK HeatMaster system, tobacco leaves are heated and in process emits slightly visible vapor and tobacco flavor without the hassle of conventional smoking. No more ashes, no more smelly odors, and most of all, no more cancer-causing chemicals,” he said. “We understand the needs and wants of millions of cigarette smokers who are looking for better and more satisfying cigarettes. MOK gives smokers, a much better choice of cigarettes with the elegant union of technology and tobacco that promises a satisfying experience that make it easier for people to transition to a better and more responsible alternative,” he said. The chief complaint is how harmful cigarettes are for smokers and the people around them, he said. They also complain of the rancid smell that clings to their clothing, skin, hair, and breath. Smoke-free smoking using MOK resolves all of these concerns, he said. The technology inside MOK called the MOK HeatMaster System uses a unique heating pin that heats up the tobacco stick. Once heated, the device releases a full-flavored, nicotine-filled vapor instead of the harmful smoke of cigarettes.
