So the first long term study has come out from the medical community. A new study by the Cancer Research of UK is looking into the effects of of e-cigarettes by looking at long-term human body-level exposure. The Nicotine, Carcinogen, and Toxin Exposure in Long-Term E-Cigarette and Nicotine Replacement Therapy Users: A Cross-sectional Study is very promising and is showing that e-cigarette users have substantially reduced levels of measured carcinogens and toxins relative to smoking only combustible cigarettes. I hope the government of the United States can learn from its mistakes and change laws that are unjust on a market that is only going to grow exponentially. Vaping has helped not only stop smoking combustible cigarettes but my fiance is a lot happier my clothes don’t smell like smoke.
Every few months, a new study about the effects of smoking e-cigarettes concludes the opposite of whatever came before it. It’s a cycle that started when the popularity for the cigarette alternatives exploded a few years ago and has led to a lot of confusion over whether vaping is bad for your health.
Background: Given the rapid increase in the popularity of e-cigarettes and the paucity of associated longitudinal health-related data, the need to assess the potential risks of long-term use is essential.
