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.
