Electronic cigarettes have been around for nearly fifty years, yet vaping haters seem to be crawling out of the woodwork these days. They are continuously spreading false claims and outright lies about the benefits of vaping, perhaps to secretly benefit Big Pharma or Big Tobacco. Whenever someone posts some fake news report about e-cigs being a gateway to smoking or e-cigs causing cancer, simply respond by quoting on of these five research studies from reputable scientific institutions.
Vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking.
The 2015 Public Health England Study is considered one of the most historic research studies of its kind, even after two-years of being released. Spelling out their testing and analytical procedures in crystal-clear detail, the UK Royal College of Physicians determines that vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking. To date, the results of the study have yet to be refuted by any federal public health organization in the world.
Second-hand vapor is safe.
The 2014 Drexel University Study focuses on the comparative health effects of second-hand e-cig vapor to that of combustible cigarettes. The scientists found e-cig vapor is nearly 100% safe for innocent bystanders to consume. Meanwhile, second-hand smoke can be deadly.
Vaping is good for the heart compared to smoking.
No one ever said that vaping is completely safe, but as the Royal College of Physicians has already proven, it’s 95% less harmful than smoking. A 2012 Onassis Cardiac Surgery Center Study by the world-class cancer research specialist Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos preceded the previously mentioned UK report by focusing on vaping and it’s possible cardiovascular benefits for smokers. The study shows that vaping has no significant negative effects on myocardial functions compared to smoking, which has immediate repercussions.
Vaping has no detectable levels of trace metals.
The 2015 IJERP Study compared the levels of nearly thirty trace metals found in cigarette smoke to those of e-cig vapor. What the scientists discovered is that vaping produces no detectable levels of trace metals like arsenic, zinc, and copper while even a single puff of a cigarette fills the lungs with these noxious toxins.
Smokers are more likely to quit permanently by switching to vaping.
In the previous blog post from Monday, we provided scientific research which shows vaping is much more effective than conventional NRTs like the patch and nicotine gum. The 2014 Addiction Journal Study further shows that smokers who switch to vaping are far more likely to quit long-term than if they had never tried vaping in the past. The patch might provide temporary results, but vaping has proven to be much more effective by a margin of 2:1 in helping smokers quit permanently.
