4 Research Studies That are Shut-Up Calls for Vape Haters

You will find news headlines, social media posts, viral website stories and a lot more bashing vaping in one way or the other. There are so many common lies people tell you about e-cigarettes. Now it’s up to us to start changing the public perceptions of vaping. You don’t need to believe in just one poorly done study and its finding lashing at vaping and totally ignoring how vaping is bringing changes in lives of public. We are bringing you some studies here that are to silence the vaping haters. All of the studies to be mentioned here are properly done, organized and the findings have been verified after surveys of years and months.

Effect of Smoking Abstinence and Reduction in Asthmatic Smokers Switching to Electronic Cigarettes: Evidence for Harm Reversal

The study was carried out by Dr. Riccardo Polosa. It’s one of the studies that confirm there are no harmful impacts of vaping for lungs at all. Dr. Polosa is one of the most reliable personalities in the field of research. The study found out that vaping is asthmatic smokers has no negative effects on their lungs and overall health. We learnt that the finding says, The e-cig may help smokers with asthma to reduce their cigarette consumption or remain abstinent and hence reduce the burden of smoking-related asthma symptoms. Now it’s obvious that asthma smokers who switch to vaping and e-cigarettes tend to have less harmful impacts on their health and it actually comes in handy to let them gain some more years of life.

Exposure to Nicotine and Selected Toxicants in Cigarette Smokers Who Switched to Electronic Cigarettes: A Longitudinal Within-Subjects Observational Study

Another study on our list! Dr. Maciej Goniewicz carried out that comprehensive research and the results show vaping is far way less harmful than the traditional smoking. “After switching from tobacco to e-cigarettes, nicotine exposure remains unchanged, while exposure to selected carcinogens and toxicants is substantially reduced,” the authors wrote.

The authors planned to conduct this study in order to find out the effects of e-cigarettes on nicotine delivery and the findings are very encouraging. People have been informed e-cigarettes are harmful and affect the health of users in the worst ways but this is not the case. The report says, in total, 45% of participants reported complete abstinence from cigarette smoking at 2 weeks, while 55% reported continued smoking. Levels of total nicotine and some polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon metabolites did not change after switching from tobacco to e-cigarettes. Vaping is a safer options and the vape users have a large number of benefits when compared to the traditional smokers.

Real-world effectiveness of e-cigarettes when used to aid smoking cessation: a cross-sectional population study

We have told that newspapers, poorly done studies and magazines are always finding the ways to criticize vaping. Luckily, there are enough studies to silence the vape haters and provide evidence that vaping is a better option for all the smokers. Millions of people use e-cigarettes in the world and this study also confirms vaping is a helpful way to let the smokers quit smoking. “Among smokers who have attempted to stop without professional support, those who use e-cigarettes are more likely to report continued abstinence than those who used a licensed NRT product bought over-the-counter or no aid to cessation,” write the authors.

Safety evaluation and risk assessment of electronic cigarettes as tobacco cigarette substitutes: a systematic review

According to this systematic literature review — a broad look at a large group of existing studies — smokers would benefit from switching to vaping. Farsalinos and Polosa concluded, “Currently available evidence indicates that electronic cigarettes are by far a less harmful alternative to smoking and significant health benefits are expected in smokers who switch from tobacco to electronic cigarettes.”

    Mr. Allcock, did you even read “Effect of Smoking Abstinence and Reduction in Asthmatic Smokers Switching to Electronic Cigarettes: Evidence for Harm Reversal”? From the abstract alone (available for free at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4053879/) we can clearly see that the researchers do not make any claims about whether e-cigs have “…harmful impacts of vaping for lungs at all” – how did you get that from this study? The study only shows benefits for asthmatics who switch to e-cigs from cigarettes. While there is significant improvement, there is no evidence that e-cigs have NO harmful effects on lungs.

      @Griffin, with respect – you are correct in your exactitude, but putting forth a strawman as regards the overall conclusion of that study. Are you prepared to admit that the overwhelming conclusions of their study was that it appears to be FAR preferable for asthmatics who are smokers (and who cannot/are not prepared to quit), to take up vaping – even if they remain dual-users, versus continuing to exclusively smoke cigarettes?

      And I use the word, “overwhelmingly” advisedly, as no reasonable person could draw any other conclusion from reading the study.

      @CathyB – see, that kind of “who pays him?” stuff really irritates me. If you are a reputable scientist who accepted a grant from a tobacco company in the 1970’s, or work in climate science and were a consultant for an oil company in the 1980’s, certain people will always roll that out as if it was some kind of conclusive evidence that your advice cannot be trusted.

      Would that mean that any lawyer or accountant who has ever represented a less-than-upstanding citizen should have their practising certificates revoked? What about yourself Have you ever worked for somebody who has been less than pristine in their ethics? Should that taint you throughout your life?

      It’s called “attacking the man, not the ball”, and it’s as illegal in sport as it is in science.

    And these studies are published where?

    Not to worry – the author of this article kindly offers us his various appraisals of the missing studies (for example:)

    “The study found out that vaping is asthmatic smokers has no negative effects on their lungs and overall health.”

    If it wasn’t worth the author’s time reading what he had to say prior to publishing (if we can call it that) – to see if it even made sense, why should I bother?

    Dr Polosa, Dr Farsalinos and Dr Goniewicz all have been paid by e-cig companies so hardly unbiased? Remember when doctors were paid to say smoking is harmless? Some are still practicing!
