3 1/2 year study shows no risk to the respiratory system from vaping

That’s the key finding from the first of its kind long-term study investigating the health impacts of vaping.

This study was conducted on adult vapers who had never smoked. 

Conducted by Dr Riccardo Polosa, world-renowned researcher and director of the Institute for Internal Medicine & Clinical Immunology at the University of Catania in Italy, the study measured and tracked the health outcomes of a cohort of daily e-cigarette users for 3.5 years.

The results shatter the myths promulgated by public health propagandists in the Progressives’ war against vaping.

Why this study is so important

What is so significant about this study, is that empirical evidence now exists adding further credence to the use of e-cigarettes as a viable smoking cessation method; without harm over a significant period. 

The majority of smokers who transition to vaping, and quit smoking completely, do so in a matter of weeks to a month or so. For those that utilise e-cigarettes as a short-term solution, concerns regarding the use of up to 3 years or so, now appear to be a moot point.

The anti vape brigade tends to stick to a common rhetoric. “We’re uncertain as to the long-term effects of vaping, and the potential for harm is unknown.

Advocacy should focus more on short-term, at least a 3 1/2 year period. This would cover the needs of all who are planning on transitioning from smoking.

  1. Can you please tell me What is considered vapor? I have a mark ten, it looks like a cig, you puff on it smokes comes out and as far as I know contains nicotine. Is this considered an e cig?

    • Hello Sarah

      Yes, it is an e-cig or electronic cigarette and we like to call them vaporisers. Vapor is technically an aerosol yet most refer to it as vapor. I trust this device is keeping you from smoking?


    • Hi Caroline,

      Thanks for your comment, it’s important we hear from vapers. I too noticed the benefits within the first month of switching.
      I assume from your email address that you work for Mt Baker Vapor, if so, it’s a great company.

  2. So far, ao good…from smoking to vaping after 2 years
    A noticeable glow of my skin and hair…no more yellow phlegm every morning.

    • Alberto,

      These do appear to be fairly universal among those that transition to vaping. I’m pleased you’re experiencing the benefits and thank you for sharing them.
