The Benefits Of Vaping

The benefits of vaping for smoking cessation greatly outweigh the health risks for young people switching between e-cigarettes and traditional cigarettes, according to new research. A study in July 2019 found cigarette smokers who started using vaping were 67% more likely to quit.


Overall, the studys team stressed that vaping still has significant negative health implications to society, but that study suggests smokers who switch to vaping, either on occasion or as a substitute for cigarettes, might be better placed for healthier lifestyle choices. A large UK clinical trial published in 2019 found that, if combined with personalized face-to-face support from experts, people using e-cigarettes for quitting were up to twice as likely to succeed than those using other nicotine replacement products, like patches or gum. Researchers at Dundee University, United Kingdom, said that in their largest clinical trial so far, they had found clear, upfront benefits of switching from smoking to vaping.


Vaping is estimated to be 95% better for your health than smoking, and vapings efficacy as a quit aid means that you are more likely to successfully reduce or quit, the biggest advantage of all. However, what many people do not know is how vaping, or electronic cigarettes, can be used not just to help you quit, but do so in a safe and effective way. Vaping is so effective in helping you to quit because vaping can quell a lot of physical habits and cravings that you have built up without realizing for months or years while smoking regular cigarettes.


In fact, the UKs Royal College of Physicians, Public Health England, and the US National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine agree vaping is safer than smoking cigarettes. Public Health England has gone so far as to say, in writing, Vaping is at least 95% less harmful than smoking its combustible tobacco equivalent. Public Health England has stated that vaping is 95 percent safer than smoking tobacco, and has expressed concern about increasing numbers of people thinking vaping is more harmful than smoking.10 In a recent committee report, the same body presented data that confirmed the overwhelming majority of e-cigarette users are current or former smokers, and the number of people using e-cigarettes who had never smoked was very low.11 The report also suggested nicotine released to the environment is negligible, and there is no evidence of vapers being exposed to hazardous levels of toxic chemicals, such as aldehyde.
