Cancer Research UK Study Proves E-Cigarettes Are Safe – Infographic
Many of the studies relating to the safety of e-cigarettes have largely been disregarded by health professionals up to now. Many believe that the previous studies weren’t extensive enough and any evidence from them was generally not taken seriously. However, as this infographic from Purplebox outlines, E-Cigarettes Safe, long term research by Cancer Research UK has demonstrated just how effective e-cigarettes can be in the battle to quit smoking. The study was carried out with the help of a number of researchers at institutions including University College London, The Roswell Park Cancer Institute, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the results of the research looks to be groundbreaking breakthrough on the safety of e-cigarettes. In plain words; e-cigarettes safe.
The results were startling and revealed how those who used e-cigarettes only had 97% lower levels of NNAL, a chemical linked with high rates of lung cancer. Interesting, people who switched between regular cigarettes and e-cigarettes still had very high levels of toxins and carcinogens in their system. The message is clear that mixing and matching simple doesn’t work, but using e-cigarettes only is massively beneficial for your health. There is no middle ground here, and vaping e-cigarettes one day and smoking regular cigarettes the next is not likely to have much of a positive impact, if any
Some of the articles printed about how detrimental e-cigarettes are to our health may be preventing people from quitting smoking. There seems to be some who believe in the phrase ‘better the devil you know’ when deciding if they should use e-cigarettes. Regular cigarettes are the real devil but the media portrayal of e-cigarettes is without question making people wary of even trying them.
The Truth: E-Cigarettes SAFE
This research has the potential to change the way people think about e-cigarettes and could play a major role in holding off any regulations in the area. They are clearly a far safer option than regular cigarettes and figures from institutions such as Public Health England and Cancer Research UK are fully supportive of this line of thinking.
