“E-cigarettes are 95% less harmful than tobacco and could be prescribed on the NHS in future to help smokers quit,” BBC News reports.
What are the main conclusions of the review?
There has been a steady growth with e-cigarette usage within the UK, and this rise has been directly proportional to the decline in cigarette sales, showing that the rise in ecigarette use directly lowers sales of cigarettes, basically proving that ecigarettes help smokers quit.
E-cigarettes are now the most popular quitting aid in England and also in many countries across the world, and the most effective quitting aid the world has ever seen.
There is more than ample evidence now that e-cigarettes can be effective in helping people quit smoking and improve health and lives of smokers.
We do appreciate accurate long-term studies are unavailable currently, due to ecigarettes being a fairly new product, but expert opinion is that e-cigarettes are around 95% safer than smoking overall.
When used as intended, e-cigarettes also pose no risk of nicotine poisoning. E-cigarettes release very small amounts of nicotine into the environment, and the findings even stated that these “passive fumes” pose no health risks to bystanders (e.g. passive smoking).
Vvapours final thoughts
This study, carried out by impartial experts and reported on by both the UK government and the NHS, shows that ecigarettes can help you quit smoking. This is the main goal of ecigarettes. The study backs up what we already know. We have a close relationship with our customers and we have heard many stories of how people have been quitting, getting health and cost benefits and improving there lives using ecigarettes. After reading these conclusions by the BBC, and being available on the NHS, people previously afraid of using ecigarettes may finally be able to give them a go and give up smoking regular cigarettes. They will then see for themselves that ecigarettes are not just sales hype, they have helped smokers quit worldwide, and many never go back to cigarettes.
