Is Vaping Better Than Smoking?
Since the majority of the articles and videos that the mainstream media puts out about vaping are littered with false information, half-truths and downright lies, it is really important to find the unbiased scientific research about vaping. Once you understand the facts about vaping, you will quickly begin to realize that big government, tobacco and pharma are working together to squash the most effective stop smoking technology to ever exist. But let’s first discuss the facts about vaping…
There are numerous credible reports on the effectiveness of vaping that we will cover within this article. The information we discuss here will link to the related study, article or documentation that supports what we are sharing with you. The intent is to provide the real and extremely credible facts about how vaping is better than smoking. The reality is that it’s not even close. The benefits of vaping when compared with smoking is dramatic and real.
The Evidence Of Vaping & eCigarette Benefits Are Overwhelming
Here is a list of just a few recent studies that prove that e-cigarettes and vaping is better than smoking cigarettes:
1- Majority of US doctors say vaping or electronic cigarettes can eliminate smoking!
In this recent survey, 70% of doctors surveyed said that vaping with e-cigs can help patients reduce or eliminate smoking, and nearly half said that they believe e-cigs can reduce risk. Additionally, some 38% of doctors have recommended e-cigs to their patients who smoke.
2- Doctors telling patients to switch to vaping!
In this study of medical professionals and their perceptions of vaping and ecigs, the data is really clear. 85% of the medical professionals surveyed said that vaping is safer than combustible cigarettes and 77% said that they will tell patients an e-cigarette is an option. Furthermore, some 63% of medical professionals would definitely recommend vaping, while only 17% said that they were cautious and 6% would never recommend e-cigarettes.
3- Vaping as Safe as Nicotine Replacement
In a study published on February 7 in the Annals of Internal Medicine, we are learning that ex smokers who vape or use nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) are substantially less likely to be exposed to carcinogens than those who continue to smoke. More importantly the data shows no evidence that former smokers who use e-cigarettes and vaping exclusively are exposed to greater levels of carcinogens or toxins than those who only use nicotine replacement therapy. This clearly suggests that e-cigs and vaping are comparable to NRT for long-term safety and substantially superior to smoking.
4- Electronic cigarette vape induces significantly less cytotoxicity than tobacco smoke.
This scientific study was actually sponsored by the British American Tobacco Company, which manufactures both ecigs and regular tobacco cigarettes. The study showed that vaping was “97% Less Toxic than Regular Cigarettes”. Among many other findings, the research only found evidence of vapor toxicity when cells were exposed to an unrealistically high level of e-cigarette vapors.
5- Vaping found to be around 95% less harmful than tobacco.
In this astonishing landmark review by experts published by Public Health England (PHE) concluded that e-cigarettes and vaping is significantly less harmful to health than smoking tobacco. It further reports that vaping has the potential to help smokers quit smoking.
What’s more, the vaping study revealed the following findings:
- the current best estimate is that vaping and e-cigarettes are around 95% less harmful than smoking
- nearly half the population (44.8%) don’t realise e-cigarettes are much less harmful than smoking
- there is no evidence so far that e-cigarettes are acting as a route into smoking for children or non-smokers
The Science Of The Benefits Of Vaping?
The real evidence is clear. Vaping is better for you than smoking, buy a large margin and it is safer for you as well. When you understand what is at the heart of the battle between vaping, big tobacco and many governments around the world, you begin to understand what’s at stake. An incredible amount of money from addicted customers that are destined to die from the thousands of chemicals and toxins contained in combustible cigarettes. When money and tax revenues supersede the health and wellbeing of human beings, we see lies, deceit and fabrication of scientific data that is willfully designed to misinform, scare and perpetuate revenue.
