Switching From Smoking To Vaping

It’s no secret that smoking is detrimental to your health. Nor is it a secret that smoking is a hard habit to break. Some smokers may have quite a hard time weening themselves off cigarettes.

Some smokers choose to vape instead. Studies has shown that vaping has less carcinogens for the smoker and also less toxins. A study in the U.K. has proved this with samples of urine and saliva of those that have vaped and not smoke traditional cigarettes. There were less carcinogens and toxins found in the 181 people tested. These chemicals of course can often lead to cancer.

Studies have also shown the those who have vaped for six months or more have very low levels of some of the worst carcinogens in their system compared to tobacco cigarettes.

a chemical heavily linked to lung cancer, was 97.5 per cent lower in former smokers who now only vaped, compared with the average smoker.

Now, this does not mean it is completely safe. These e-cigarettes are about 30-50 percent as dangerous as cigarettes. This is an option to switch to for reduced risks. Those that feel they need the nicotine can still get some in these e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes are still more accepted than regular cigarettes in public as well.
