Are you worried about the health effects of vaping?
You needn't be. Despite a lot of misinformation in the media, studies have shown that vaping is a much safer and healthier alternative to cigarettes. In this article, we'll explain why.
Read on to find out five things you should know about vaping health.
1.Vaping is Better for Your Lungs (and the rest of you) than Smoking
According to a study by the Queen Mary University of London, smokers who switch to vaping suffer from fewer respiratory infections.
In the study, 941 smokers switched to vaping for two months, after which 66% of them reported an improvement in their respiratory systems. A follow-up study was also conducted on smokers suffering from asthma and found significant improvements in this area.
You might be wondering if the same can be said for long-term e-cigarette smokers. Thankfully, it can.
The effects of the use of e-cigarettes for up to 1.5 years has been studied with no significant adverse effects on the respiratory system.
And it’s not just your lungs that are better off when you switch from cigarettes, but the rest of your body too. Another study by Cancer Research UK found that by people who vaped had 97% less toxins in their bodies then cigarette smokers!
Overall, vaping is better for your body, carrying much lower risks than cigarettes.
2. Vaping has a Lower Cancer Risk
Simply put, overwhelming evidence shows that vaping is far safer than smoking.
In fact, Public Health England and the Royal College of Physicians have estimated that it's 95% safer than smoking.
This is because while e-cigarettes do contain nicotine, they don't contain cancer-causing tobacco.
Tobacco is where all the 50 known carcinogens and the 4000+ chemicals are found such as tar and arsenic.
If you make the switch from cigarettes to e-cigarettes, you'll significantly reduce your exposure to cancer-causing chemicals, therefore hugely reducing your risk of developing cancer in the future.
Smoking can cause cancer in countless areas of the body, including the lungs, larynx, liver, kidneys, colon, stomach, pancreas, blood, and even the bladder and cervix. When there's that much of a risk, switching to a safer alternative is a no-brainer.
3. There are No Risks to Passive Vaping
When you smoke cigarettes, you not only have to worry about your own health but the health of the people around you, too.
Inhaling second-hand smoke from cigarettes carries some of the same risks as smoking them yourself. This is why smoking in a vehicle with someone under the age of 18 was banned in England and Wales in 2015.
Even with these rules to stop it passive smoking kills thousands of people every year in the UK.
This isn't the case with vaping.
The vapour produced from e-cigarettes isn't harmful to the people around you, after all all it has in it is nicotine, Propylene glycol and Vegetable Glycerine and flavourings, all of which are harmless.
The only thing in the vapour that could have any effect would be the nicotine, and there is so little in the second hand vapour that there is little to no chance it will effect anyone else.
Cancer Reserch UK even recommends e-cigarettes on the fact that they don't harm you or the people around you.
Vaping is also much more pleasant for others around you. Harmful cigarette smoke is extremely irritating to some non-smokers, but when you vape, you can choose a fragrant e-liquid that won't bother anyone. That way, you don't have to sneak off away from your friends to have a smoke.
4. Vaping Helps You Quit Smoking
The main thing to know about vaping health is that it's directly linked with quitting smoking.
Most smokers have attempted to quit several times with little success. Some even manage to give it up for years but end up giving in to their addiction once again later on. Studies show that the average smoker makes two attempts to quit.
The NHS reported that the number of people in the UK who have successfully quit smoking has fallen every year for the last four years. Smoking is an addiction and extremely difficult to quit cold turkey, which is why many smokers used aids like nicotine patches. Vaping is a new way for smokers to transition to non-smokers with ease.
According to the Smoking Toolkit Study, around 37% of smokers trying to quit use e-cigarettes to help them to do so.
Some people smoke because they're addicted, but others smoke simply because they enjoy smoking. Nicotine gum or patches don't give them that same enjoyment, but e-cigarettes can. That's why they're the best alternative to cigarettes.
When you vape, you don't have to stop smoking altogether. Instead, you just change the way you do it, so it's safer and healthier. It's a win-win situation, and means you don't feel like you're missing out.
With vaping you still satisfy your nicotine craving without the worry of health concerns of cigarettes. Give it a try, risk-free and guilt-free, and see if you can replace cigarettes altogether.
5. You'll Feel and Look Better
If you choose to vape over smoking, your body will thank you.
Outside of cancer risks, smoking has several other well-known adverse effects on our bodies, the first of which is yellowing teeth.
Tobacco stains your teeth, giving them a yellow or brown tinge that is rather unappealing. It can also increase your risk of gum disease. Vaping doesn't have this effect, so you can keep your pearly white teeth!
The second way in which smoking worsens your appearance is by giving you wrinkles. The chemicals in cigarettes and the lack of oxygen caused by smoking damage the fibres in your skin that give it elasticity, making it more wrinkled and saggy than it once was.
If you ditch the cigarettes, you can get your nicotine fix without making yourself look older and tired.
You'll feel better, too. Without the harmful carbon dioxide from cigarettes, your breathing and blood flow will return to normal. This means you'll find it easier to exercise without getting out of breath as quickly.
