Vaping To Reduce Smoking-Related Deaths By 21%
Return to Vaping Blog

#EcigStoreTXNew research shows that switching to e-cigarettes or vaping may reduce adolescent smoker’s risk of dying from smoking-related health problems by as much as 21%. Considering smoking is presently estimated to be the cause of six million deaths worldwide annually, these results are significant.


And the best part is, this study was not funded by the tobacco or e-cigarette industry. The study was actually funded by the National Cancer Institute, the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network. In the study, adolescent smokers were referenced as anyone born after the year 1997. Dr. David Levy, professor of oncology, stressed that the study centered on adolescents who vaped or smoked e-cigarettes regularly, not just once or twice. This study differs from previous research since participants were grouped together regardless of their experience with vaping or e-cigs.


These reports are in direct contradiction with public and government attitude. Especially following the FDA’s ruling to consider all vape and e-cig products as
“tobacco products,” these studies will be particularly important to reveal the facts about vaping.


This is not the only study or researcher that is in support of vaping/e-cig over traditional cigarette smoking. Medical leaders, such as Professor Munafo, have concluded that vaping releases fewer harmful chemicals because tobacco smoke, found in cigarettes, is where harmful chemicals lie. These elements can cause brain damage and numerous other health consequences.


Although, Dr. Levy stresses a need for further long-term research on the health effects of vaping in adolescents, for now it seems to be a better alternative to traditional smoking. Studies in favor of vaping are increasingly being published, but at the same time the vaping industry is facing pushback from federal regulation.
