A professor at Harvard has compiled and analyzed over 800 studies on e-cigarettes and vaping.
We've been hearing about the lack of research within the industry, from politicians that want to see strict, and often unfair, regulations and restrictions imposed.
Well, Dr. Nancy Rigotti, of the National Academies of Science Engineering and Medicine, has been kind enough to create a report of her teams findings.
The full report can be found here.
But we're going to summarize the findings for you, just in case you don't have time to read pages of information!
- The cloud of vapor from an e-cigarette contains fewer numbers and lower levels of toxins than smoke from regular cigarettes.
- The exposure to nicotine is dependent on the e-liquid, device and settings used.
- The use of e-cigarettes and nicotine containing e-liquid, results in dependency on the device - although it should be noted that dependency carries less severity and risk than that of regular cigarettes.
- More frequent use of an e-cigarette is linked to an increased likelihood of smoking cessation.
- Complete substitution of e-cigarettes with regular cigarettes reduces a person's exposure to many toxins and carcinogens present in combustible tobacco. This will lead to a greatly reduced risk of health issues in several organs.
- There is significantly less activity within the body, on a biological-level, from e-cigarette vapor than from tobacco smoke.
If you know somebody who has been thinking of switching to vaping, please share this information with them so they can make an informed decision.
Have an awesome weekend and don't forget - VAPE ON!
