7 Groundbreaking Studies that Vaper Haters Don't Want You To Know About
See the top e-cig studies, surveys and research that critics and mainstream media
On this website, as well as our blog,
we like to keep you guys in the loop about the latest vaping studies, research and remarks from the
medical and scientific communities. We try to post these findings as soon as we hear about them for
a few reasons:
To equip you and other vapers with real facts and statistics, not just opinions and
To bust the myth that e-cig manufacturers don't want studies to be done on their devices, "lest
the dangers of their products be exposed" – or something like that.
One of the main critiques of vaping is the lack of research done on nicotine delivery devices.
However, in the last few years there have actually been scores of clinical tests and trials which
shed a positive light on e-cigs – unfortunately, they didn't get the media coverage they
For all of these reasons and more, here's a list of some top studies we've seen to date that the
critics don't want people to know about:
Myth of Vaping as a Gateway to Smoking Tobacco Busted
After analyzing the results of a 2014
survey of 1300 undergraduate American college students, experts found that only three
had started smoking tobacco cigarettes after being introduced to nicotine through e-cigs. In
the American Journal of Preventative Medicine, researchers concluded: "Uptake of
ETPs (dissolvables, snus, and e-cigs) is poor, unlike cigarettes and SLT (smokeless
tobacco), and does not appear to lead to significant daily/non-daily use of cigarettes."
Some Nicotine, but No Combustible Toxins Found in Secondhand Vapor
Six doctors conducted a series of tests on secondhand vapor and determined that e-cig vapor
contains no combustion-related toxins, unlike smoke from tobacco cigarettes. In the vapor,
they found only trace amounts of nicotine – 10 times less than the average concentration of
nicotine from smoking. They submitted their final results to the Oxford Journal, saying: "The study showed that e-cigarettes are
a source of secondhand exposure to nicotine but not to combustion toxicants."
By comparing 15 smokers and 15 non-smokers, researchers in Greece were able to measure the effect of smoking and
vaping on lung function. They ascertained that secondhand exposure to tobacco smoke was more
damaging to the respiratory system than first-hand vaping. In conclusion: "Neither a brief
session of active e-cigarette smoking nor passive e-cigarette smoking significantly affected
the lung function."
Fires and Explosions Caused by E-Cigs are Extremely Rare
The U.S. Fire Administration extinguished the widespread rumor that e-cigs are a serious
source of fire danger, stating that incidents involving vaping-caused fires and explosions
are rare. Although more than 2.5 million Americans use e-cigs, only 25 cases of an explosion
or fire involving one of these devices have ever been reported. Of these accidents, nine
resulted in injuries and there were no deaths. As the USFA ultimately concluded: "Considering the vast number of products in the field
that use lithium-ion batteries, however, it is clear that the failure rates are low."
Vaping Pros Outweigh the Cons
scientific review by Queen Mary University of London recently stated
that "although there are gaps in the knowledge that require further research, the current
evidence about e-cigarettes does not justify regulating them more strictly than, or even as
strictly as, conventional cigarettes."
Doctors are Warming Up to E-Cigs
Two-thirds (67%) of the North Carolina doctors and physicians surveyed in 2013 believe that e-cigs can be a helpful smoking
cessation aid, and 35% have recommended them to their patients.
