We who love vaping look at the scientific evidence that it is a healthier alternative to smoking. What are some of the reasons? An article in Elite Daily took a look at some of the main reasons that, so far, studies are proving that there are benefits to vaping over smoking.
1. Vaping does not damage your cardiovascular system.
Elite Daily notes three research studies, one by Greek researchers at the Onassis Cardiac Surgery Center (the process doesn’t damage your aorta, the biggest artery in the body), one by Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos, who analyzed the effects of vaping on the oxygen supply and found there are no alterations in the amount of oxygen the heart receives during vaping, and one by a team of scientists behind the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, who looked at the impact of the e-liquids on the heart cells.
2. Vaping doesn’t impair lung function.
One of the great vaping benefits is that vapors don’t impair the lung function nor the respiratory process. Researchers looked at how vaping impacts the respiratory function and the lungs, given the fact smoking leads to deadly lung cancer and a lot of respiratory problems in both first-hand smokers and second-hand smokers.
3. The smoke from vaping really is safer than the one from regular smoking.
One of the vaping benefits was revealed by a study published in the Oxford Journal, which analyzed the compounds in the e-cigarette smoke.
4. Second-hand vaping is not dangerous.
A team of French researchers studied the effects of second-hand vaping and concluded that vapors from e-cigs are not dangerous. Additionally, researcher Igor Burstyn of School of Public Health, Drexel University’s Dept. of Environmental and Occupational Health, concluded in his study the vapors contain insignificant amounts of potentially dangerous substances.
A team of independent scientists found that 91 percent of the smokers who switched to vaping improved their health and 97 percent of them noticed a reduction in their chronic coughing. A team at the Boston University of Public Health looked at the mortality risk in smokers. They found that electronic cigarettes users had a significantly lower risk of death, compared to their peers who used regular cigarettes.
6. Vaping can really help a smoker quit
A study conducted by a team of mixed researchers from the University of Geneva and the University of Auckland revealed that vaping helps smokers give up on smoking and keeps them away from cigarettes. Another study found that flavored liquids are actually helping former smokers cutting down on the cigarettes and even o nicotine, for some. This means we might witness a day when smoking becomes a dead habit altogether, all according to the Elite Daily story, which can be found here.
