The latest study to hit the scene is shaming critics and shocking public health officials with more undeniable evidence that vaping is a safe and effective alternative.
The new study was published in “Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology” and showed what exactly is hiding in ecig vapour – compared to the contents of analogue cigarette smoke. Scientists ran tests on five flavors of ecigs. They also tested Marlboro Golds and Lambert & Butler cigarettes. Finally, they tested the ordinary room air as a baseline to use as they compared the results.
The researchers specifically looked for 8 toxins in this study: carbon monoxide, carbonyls, phenolics, volatiles, metals, tobacco-specific nitrosamines, polyaromatic amines, and polyaromatic hydrocarbons. It was of no surprise that tobacco cigarette smoke was full of poisonous chemicals. But what really shocked the researchers was that the toxins in ecigarette vapor were very similar to the normal toxins found in regular room air. In fact there was no major increase in toxins between normal air and e-cig vapour.
Instead of deadly toxins, the ecig vapor contained only propylene glycol, water, and traces of flavoring and nicotine additives. In order to register any degree of toxicity, the scientists had to use an astounding 99 puffs of an e-cig to get even the tiniest measurement of 0.18 milligrams of HPHC’s.
To put that in perspective – a single puff of a Marlboro Gold cigarette measured 30.6 milligrams. So in a puff-to-puff comparison, the cigarettes had 2000 times more toxins than the e-cigs.
This study (just one of thousands) makes it clear that ecigs are a far better alternative for smokers. They are now scientifically proven to have harm reduction properties and there is no way that lawmakers can argue that public vaping is harmful after looking at these lab reports. The next time you hear someone complaining that public vaping is dangerous, point them to this study. Science is our number one weapon to stop critics and spread truth about all the incredible benefits of vaping.
