UK study: It's safe to vape

Posted by

Straight from the horse's mouth:

“The evidence consistently finds that e-cigarettes are another tool for stopping smoking and in my view smokers should try vaping,” said Professor Ann McNeill, a tobacco addiction specialist at London’s King’s College and one of the independent authors of a new report on e-cigarettes.

Commissioned by Public Health England, the report, “E-cigarettes: an evidence update,” is an expert independent review of the latest evidence for use by medical practitioners, policy makers, and the public. The authors specifically looked at what many stuck on tobacco cigarettes want to know: Is it safe to vape and is it effective in stopping the smoking habit?

“Many people think the risks of e-cigarettes are the same as smoking tobacco and this report clarifies the truth of this,” wrote Duncan Selbie, the agency’s chief executive.

In a nutshell, best estimates show e-cigarettes are 95% less harmful to your health than normal cigarettes, and when supported by a smoking cessation service, help most smokers to quit tobacco altogether,” he said.

What really stands out is that the authors found that most of the chemicals that cause smoking-related disease were absent from e-cigs. They said the chemicals that were present posed limited danger.

According to the British report just about everyone: social smokers, not-so-heavy smokers, heavy smokers, and even smokers who do not want to quit smoking. The British report shows that vaping e-cigarettes helps those who want to quit smoking and can reduce the number of cigarettes of smokers who have no intention of quitting.

Vaping also benefits those who live with smokers because electronic cigarettes emit vapor, not smoke. There is no second-hand smoke. No odor.

Isn't it great to have science on our side?
