A recent study indicates that electronic cigarettes could be as harmful as smoking regular cigarettes. The recent study seems to contradict advice given by Public Health England (PHE) last year, which said vaping is 95% less harmful than tobacco.

The study suggested that vaping affects the main heart artery in a similar pattern as smoking a cigarette. To measure the damage caused by e-cigarettes, scientists monitored 24 adults with an average age of 30 to determine the implications of vaping compared to smoking.

The result was stunning! Scientists found that the effects from a 30-minute session of vaping – as e-cigarettes deliver nicotine at a slower rate than cigarettes – were similar to those from smoking a cigarette for five minutes. Researchers identified that a vaping session had a harmful impact on aorta – the main artery into the heart – as smoking one regular cigarette.

While doctors and scientists are urging people to discontinue vaping, we wonder why someone would even develop an electronic cigarette. Smoking in any form is harmful to your health- be it an ordinary cigarette, an electronic cigarette or a hookah!

    i stopped smoking 2 years ago and vape instead. I feel better. Smoking a carton a week cost me $3,000 a year. A year supply of e liquid mixed at home costs $30. I might need the money I save in case I live longer.

    A billion people spend a trillion dollars a year on tobacco. That’s going to end and the people who benefit from that money are going to suffer. They deserve to suffer because they shouldn’t be taking money from kids and poor people, who do most of the smoking.
