If you were to walk into any e-cigarette store in the UK and ask the question ‘Is vaping safer than smoking’, every single one would tell you the same thing. Yes.
In the last few years, vaping has gone from an underground, often overlooked activity, to the biggest competitor to the tobacco industry. Around the world, millions of people are trading smoking for vaping, and vaping is growing in strength each day.
The last few years have been eventful for vaping, with overwhelmingly positive clinical studies, research data and new trading standards that make vaping safer for everyone.
A new study has shown that E-cigarettes are up to 97% safer than conventional smoking.
In a study funded by Cancer Research UK and performed by the department of epidemiology and public health at UCL, it was found that long term vapers have significantly lower toxic and carcinogenic substances in their body when compared to smokers.
Despite the fact that vaping is still unrecognised as a smoking cessation tool in the US, it seems that the public's actions drastically contradict political opinion.
The Department of Family Medicine and Public Health of the University of California and the National Cancer Institute recently announced the results of a domestic study of US smokers, with the aim to better understand what effect e-cigarettes are having on cessation rates.
