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.

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 option 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.”
