Another study that was done in London says that the use of e-cigarettes is far safer and less toxic than smoking conventional tobacco cigarettes, as found on the results of a research done about analyzing levels of dangerous cancer-causing substances in the body.
It was discovered that people who chose to switch to e-cigarettes or nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) has far more lower toxin levels in their body than those who continue to smoke tobacco.
“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,” said Lion Shahab, a specialist in epidemiology and public health at University College London who led the work.
With the e-cigarette industry booming into a billion-dollar industry, far bigger than NRT products, it definitely is the growing solution to helping people quit smoking. Experts have been saying over the years that vaping is a lower-risk alternative to smoking, and this study once again proves it.
Although e-cigarettes are branded by most health “experts” as a gateway to taking up analog cigarettes, it simply isn’t true. Governments are urged to impose taxes on the use of such devices to discourage its use. However, it looks more like a plan to cash in on vaping since the tobacco industry has seen a huge decline in sales, as well as taxes remitted over the last 6 years.
It was found that smokers who managed to make the switch to either vaping or NRT for even a few months have seen long-term health benefits, similar to the same body improvements of quitting smoking cold-turkey.
While cigarettes are the world’s biggest killer that are easily preventable, with a 6-million casualty count per year, people seem to continue with the vice, not knowing that there is a far better alternative to smoking.
, national director of health and wellbeing at the government authority Public Health England, said the findings held a clear message for tobacco smokers.
“Switching to e-cigarettes can significantly reduce harm to smokers, with greatly reduced exposure to carcinogens and toxins,” he said in a statement. “The findings also make clear that the benefit is only realised if people stop smoking completely and make a total switch.” Kevin Fenton – National Director of Health and Wellbeing at the Government Authority Public Health England
While quitting the use of tobacco is the best solution, it is easier said than done. Electronic cigarettes were invented for the specific purpose, because people know that an alternative is needed to keep themselves from smoking.
