Check Out These Vapor Advocacy Studies and Learn Something New
In this article you will be given an abundance of information on vapor advocacy studies with the supporting facts regarding all things Vapor. We will cover everything from second hand vapor, improvement of lung function for ex-smokers, nicotine comparisons to caffeine and much more. Researches have been hard at work for almost a decade now so let’s see what some have found out shall we?
We will start off with one of the most compelling arguments that is swurlling around the air and that would be that second hand vapor is dangerous. This idea is easily thought of due to the detrimental aspects of traditional tobacco second hand smoke. A study created by Dr. Michael Siegel had his team take samples in a more than saturated vape store with tens of people actively vaping. He is quoted as saying, “This study, although conducted under very high exposure conditions in a small, non-ventilated vape shop with many employees and customers vaping and clouds of vapor visible, did not document any dangerous levels of exposure to any hazardous chemical.” Thus indicating that second hand vape is quite less detrimental compared to the traditional effects. In this study there were trace amounts of formaldehyde detected when samples were taken. Dr. Siegel indicates that the small amount of formaldehyde detected (7.2ppb or parts per billion) is consistent with the levels normally found in indoor and outdoor air levels. This was the only “hazardous chemical” reading that showed up out of the 22 tested.
The improvement of lung function for ex-smokers has been a huge advocacy reason for a large majority of those who made the switch to vapor products. Especially those who are plagued by both asthma and the addiction to cigarettes. In this study it is outlined that those who participated in their study showed signs of improvement in asthma control and that e-cigs could be a valid replacement to cigarettes. We have testimonial after testimonial from ex-smokers rejoicing about their lung capacity compared to when they were pack a day smokers. Many proclaiming that they can do many more activities without shortness of breath or hacking up a lung. With this improved breathing they are much more active and energized versus when they could barely walk up the stairs without taking a break or hyperventilating.
Our friends across the pond have reported that e-cigarettes could be 95% safer than smoking traditional cigarettes. The studies performed by Dr. Ann McNeill a professor at Kings college london, lay out this report. The main take away from her report is that the carcinogens found in smoking are either absent in vapor or if they are present they are at levels much below 5% of smoking doses. In addition to that she states “the main chemicals present in e-cigarettes only have not been associated with any serious risk.” She goes on to say that “On current evidence, there is no doubt that smokers who switch to vaping reduce the risks to their health dramatically.”
In summation we are not stating that vaping is outright safe but in comparison to the detrimental side effects of traditional cigarettes it is a much safer alternative, as the evidence indicates. The best way to guard your health when choosing to use vape products is to put serious thought into who your are purchasing your e-liquid from. You need to make sure that they are abiding by the rules and regulations set forth and using the highest of quality ingredients. There are plenty of companies out there trying to make a quick buck and selling less than satisfactory products, so be vigilant my friends!
