Further Studies Have Shown That Vaping Could Be A Healthier Alternative To Smoking

If you have been struggling to quit smoking using traditional methods, patches, pills, and programs, then vaping could be a healthier alternative to smoking and help you quit smoking for good!

Very few new ideas have faced such a hostile inception as vaping has done over the last five years. Misinformation is one thing, but the vaping community has been continually faced with defending itself against lies and distorted facts.

A recent long-term study into vaping has gone a long way to help dispel some of the misinformation being reported by the media. We aren’t suggesting that you don’t believe everything that you read or watch, but remember to look into some of the facts before you make a decision.

 

Some of the key points that the study found were:

  • Smokers which made the switch from smoking traditional cigarettes to artificial alternatives to smoking have far less cancer-causing substances and toxins inside their bodies after six months.
  • Smokers which switch entirely to alternative smoking methods such as vaping have far higher success rates.
  • People that made the switch from traditional cigarettes to e-cigarettes showed increased health benefits after six months. Their bodies contained fewer cancer-causing substances and toxins related to smoking.
  • Compared with full-time smokers in the study, those users that only used e-cigarettes had 97% lower levels of one toxic chemical, NNAL, which is strongly associated with lung cancer.

The main driving force behind the study, Dr. Lion Shahab, from University College London, was quoted as saying “Our study adds to existing evidence showing that e-cigarettes and NRT are far safer than smoking, and suggests that there is a very low risk associated with their long-term use. We’ve shown that the levels of toxic chemicals in the body from e-cigarettes are considerably lower than suggested in previous studies using simulated experiments. This means some doubts about the safety of e-cigarettes may be wrong. Our results also suggest that while e-cigarettes are not only safer, the amount of nicotine they provide is not noticeably different to conventional cigarettes. This can help people to stop smoking altogether by dealing with their cravings in a safer way.

During the study, which was funded by Cancer Research UK, different scientists studied over 180 different individuals which included both smokers, ex-smokers, and non-smokers. The smokers and ex-smokers had all used cigarettes or nicotine replacement products such as pills and nicotine patches for over six months.

The study also included a group of people who smoked traditional cigarettes and used e-cigarette products as well as other NRT products during the study. In this group, there was very little difference noted in levels of NNAL in their systems.

Other substances known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which also included highly carcinogenic acrylamide and cyanide-releasing acrylonitrile, were also far less prevalent in the systems of e-cigarette users.

Alison Cox, who is the director of cancer prevention at the Cancer Research UK, said: “Around a third of tobacco-caused deaths are due to cancer, so we want to see many more of the UK’s 10 million smokers break their addiction. This study adds to growing evidence that e-cigarettes are a much safer alternative to tobacco, and suggests the long-term effects of these products will be minimal. Understanding and communicating the benefits of nicotine replacements, such as e-cigarettes, is an important step towards reducing the number of tobacco-related deaths here in the UK.”

There are going to be much more studies into the health risks of smoking and vaping, but the facts will begin to speak for themselves. We encourage all vapers and those interested in vaping and e-cigarettes to look and listen, read articles and reports from a variety of sources before making any decisions.

E-cigarettes ‘are much safer than normal cigarettes, with a very low risk’ says study

Ex-smokers who switched to e-cigarettes or NRT had significantly lower levels of toxic chemicals and carcinogens in their body compared to people who continued to smoke

E-cigarettes are “much safer” than conventional cigarettes, according to a landmark study.

The devices are less toxic and safer to use compared to conventional cigarettes, according to the research published in Annals of Internal Medicine tomorrow.

Scientists found that people who swapped smoking regular cigarettes for e-cigarettes or nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) for at least six months had much lower levels of toxic and cancer causing substances in their body than people who continued to use conventional cigarettes.

For the first time, researchers analysed the saliva and urine of long-term e-cigarette and NRT users, as well as smokers, and compared body-level exposure to key chemicals.

Ex-smokers who switched to e-cigarettes or NRT had significantly lower levels of toxic chemicals and carcinogens in their body compared to people who continued to smoke tobacco cigarettes.

But those who used e-cigarettes or NRT while continuing to smoke did not show the same marked differences, highlighting that a complete switch is needed to reduce exposure to toxins.

Lead author Dr Lion Shahab, senior lecturer in the department of epidemiology and public health at UCL, said: “Our study adds to existing evidence showing that e-cigarettes and NRT are far safer than smoking, and suggests that there is a very low risk associated with their long-term use.

“We’ve shown that the levels of toxic chemicals in the body from e-cigarettes are considerably lower than suggested in previous studies using simulated experiments.

“This means some doubts about the safety of e-cigarettes may be wrong. Our results also suggest that while e-cigarettes are not only safer, the amount of nicotine they provide is not noticeably different to conventional cigarettes.

“This can help people to stop smoking altogether by dealing with their cravings in a safer way.”

The research was funded by Cancer Research UK.

Almost 10 million people still smoke across the UK. Smoking is responsible for 96,000 deaths a year.

More than two million people use e-cigarettes.

Alison Cox, Cancer Research UK’s director of cancer prevention, said: “Around a third of tobacco-caused deaths are due to cancer, so we want to see many more of the UK’s 10 million smokers break their addiction.

“This study adds to growing evidence that e-cigarettes are a much safer alternative to tobacco, and suggests the long term effects of these products will be minimal. Understanding and communicating the benefits of nicotine replacements, such as e-cigarettes, is an important step towards reducing the number of tobacco-related deaths here in the UK.”

Prof Kevin Fenton, national director of health and wellbeing at Public Health England, added: “This study provides further evidence that switching to e-cigarettes can significantly reduce harm to smokers, with greatly reduced exposure to carcinogens and toxins.

British smokers are switching to e-cigarettes faster than anyone else in Europe

Britons are switching from cigarettes to electronic alternatives faster than anyone else in Europe.

Since 2013, one person has switched from traditional smoking to so-called vaping every four minutes in the UK, according to new research from EY.

And now more than 2m British people vape, a total of 4.2 per cent of adults.

By contrast, the next highest penetration is in France, where just over 3 per cent use electronic products.

The perceived health benefits of electronic cigarettes are believed to be key to their take up, and the UK government’s advisory body Public Health England and the Royal College of Physicians have been among the groups to suggest e-cigarettes could function as a safer equivalent to the traditional products.

Kingsley Wheaton, managing director for Next Generation Products, at British American Tobacco said: “The UK has one of the most progressive regulatory environments for e-cigarettes and that’s reflected in consumer uptake and category growth.

“The UK government has created an environment which enables consumers to be informed about the products, have access to them and allows manufacturers to innovate and provide quality vaping products.”

The total e-cigarette market worldwide is estimated to be worth £6.1bn, and is projected to reach £12bn by 2020.
