This month, Cancer Research U.K. published one of the only long-term studies to date comparing vaping to smoking cigarettes, and their conclusions certainly seem like good news for anyone who has made or is thinking of making the switch from smoke to vapor. According to the analysis of saliva and urine from 181 participants with varying nicotine habits over a time period of at least six months, e-cigs can drastically cut the amount of toxinsRead More
