Switching to vaping - how quick will my body benefit?
Experts have found that in studies that people who had switched from smoking to vaping had far less cancer causing toxins in their bodies. To make sure you get these benefits in such a short period of time, you must completely switch from smoking to vaping, or the body is still found to have a significant number of tobacco related toxins.
These studies contradict some previous studies which implied vaping was as harmful as smoking, such studies were sometimes funded by companies within the tobacco industry itself, so make of their findings what you will, vaping is already eating into the massive profits of the tobacco industry.
Who carried out the study - Can I trust it?
This study, was a an independent study which was conducted by the Universty College London, lead author Dr Lion Shahab said "Our study adds to existing evidence showing that e-cigarettes and NRT are far safer than smoking, and suggests that there is a very low risk associated with their long-term use. This can help people to stop smoking altogether by dealing with their cravings in a safer way"
Cancer Reasearch UK funded the scientists where 181 smokers and ex-smokers used a mixture of e-cigarettes or NRT products in the form of patches and nasal sprays for a minimum period of 6 months.
The research found that users of the e-cigarettes had 97% lower levels of NNAL (which is strongly linked to lung cancer) compared to full-time smokers.
There was virtually thew same levels of NNAL for those in the studies who smoked both cigarettes and e-cigarettes.
The studies also found that there were other substances which had reduced in the body, these volatile organic compounds (VOCs) included highly carciogenic acrylamide & cyanide-releasing acrylonitrile.
The director at Cancer Research UK, Alison Cox goes on to say "Around a third of tobacco-caused deaths are due to cancer, so we want to see many more of the UK's 10 million smokers break their addiction. This study adds to growing evidence that e-cigarettes are a much safer alternative to tobacco, and suggests the long term effects of these products will be minimal."
