Inhalation Toxicology, a peer reviewed journal, published the results of an indoor air quality study conducted at the Center for Air Resources Engineering and Science by CHANGE, LLC at the Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY. The study was carried out to compare the level of harmful byproducts left behind by cigarette smoke versus vaporized e-cigarette liquid.
New research from the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in New York is piling up even more evidence that using electronic cigarettes is considerably safer than the tobacco alternative. It looked specifically at several toxic components found in cigarettes, and compared the levels of them to those found in e-cigs. Unsurprisingly, they found that e-cigs contain from 9 to 450 times less toxic components than their tobacco counterparts. Anybody persisting in the belief that e-cigs can be just as dangerous as traditional cigarettes is left with even more to explain, but yet the story seems conspicuously absent from the mainstream media.
New research from the University of East London has added further evidence that e-cigarettes are extremely effective for reducing cigarette use, with a total of 88 percent of the sample reporting at least a significant reduction in smoking.
In a recent study which found that 74 percent of people who started using an e-cigarette didn't smoke a cigarette for at least a few weeks, there was also a more unexpected result. The researchers found a statistically significant difference between the numbers of ex smokers and current smokers using a more advanced tank system.
A recent French study concludes that e-cigs are potentially carcinogenic. To find out what they actually determined from the test, it’s very, very important to look what they did to come to their conclusion. The answer would literally melt your face off.
A new study, funded by CASAA, has looked at the existing data on the contents of e-liquids and the vapor from e-cigs, and – unsurprisingly – found no evidence of risk to vapers, even under “worst case” scenarios.
Many people who argue against e-cigs are incensed by the technology because vapers are still addicted to nicotine, but these arguments inherently side-step the entire purpose of the technology: it’s a harm reduction device.
A new study published in Lancet from researchers in New Zealand has pitted e-cigarettes against patches to see which approach is more effective.
A recent paper which was published in the Harm Reduction Journal by Professor Polosa, summarizes the existing evidence into e-cigs, and looks at the potential damage caused by the misinformation surrounding the technology.
A new piece of research from Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos and his colleagues has investigated the potential cytotoxicity of e-cigarette vapor, and found that (shockingly enough) the vast majority of vaporized liquids are much safer than the smoke from traditional cigarettes.
Two researchers presented yesterday what may very well wind up one of the most important resources to date against the argument that electronic cigarettes are a gateway to teen smoking.
A new longitudinal study published in Addictive Behaviors has provided evidence that “dual users” of both e-cigarettes and tobacco cigs generally reduce the number of cigarettes they smoke or quit entirely, as well as offering an insight into the behavior of us now-vaping ex-smokers.
Prof. Riccardo Polosa and Dr. Pasquale Caponnetto have had a letter published in the Lancet Oncology this month, after having spotted the sort of editorial you’d expect to see in a misguided tabloid rather than a prestigious journal.
A new piece of research has investigated the concentrations of nicotine, carbon monoxide and various volatile organic compounds after e-cigarette use, and compared them to those from a traditional cigarette.
A new piece of research looking at Korean adolescents has led to loud proclamations that e-cigs are a gateway to smoking addiction. The finding echoes concerns of late from hysterical anti-smoking campaigners and groups such as the CDC that e-cigs are some type of Trojan horse through which smoking is going to re-capture society.
A new study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health has provided more evidence in support of something vapers have known for a long time: that the variety of flavors available is integral to quitting smoking using electronic cigarettes.
New research published in the FASEB Journal has found that smoking cigarettes disrupts the body’s internal clock in both the brain and lungs, leading to a decrease in overall activity and disturbance of the sleep cycle in the mice studied.
A new piece of research published in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine has offered evidence destined to be used as a justification for spreading fear about the assumed risks of e-cigarettes.
As ex-smokers, many vapers have actually tried nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) before. This encompasses things like gums and patches, which offer some nicotine in the hopes of minimizing withdrawal symptoms when you try to quit smoking.
A new pre-clinical study presented at a conference last month suggests that human lung cells with mutations associated with a high cancer risk exhibit more “cancerous behaviors” after being exposed to e-cigarette vapor.
