The popularity of electronic cigarettes has vastly increased over the past 2 years. Not many people knew about ecigarettes, evaporisers, ecigs when we opened Soulblu Shop to sell electronic cigarettes in Melbourne over 2 years ago, but today you find more people talking about this smoking alternative, even on T.V shows, T.V reports, newspaper, magazines, radio stations, etc. Its being a satisfactory job helping and listening thousands of experiences from ex-smokers about how well they feel since they started vaping and how their health, lifestyle and relationships have improved.
Despite of the increase on the vaping population and the amount of successful stories told by Soulblu returning customers to our Melbourne and Queensland shops, the same type of questions are to be asked by many smokers prior to making the switch. Many of the concerns raised by customers include:
1. Safety of ejuice, eliquid
2. Second-hand effect of vapour
3. The effectiveness of e cigarettes as a smoking cessation device.
Either if you are a smoker or just want to gather more information related to these trendy e cigarettes, below you can find some studies done to help you solve all your questions and alleviate any fears regarding ecigarettes and the eliquids contained in them.
1. Dr Konstantinos Farsalinos’ comprehensive presentation on existing data relating to the safety of ecigarettes presented at the The E-Cigarette Summit, Royal Society, London in November 2013
Indoor Vapor Air Quality Study: Data at Clarkson University’s Center for Air Resources and reviewed by an independent toxicologist indicates electronic cigarettes produce very small exposures to byproducts relative to tobacco cigarettes. This study has been peer reviewed and will appear the journal of Inhalation Toxicology.
2. Medical and executive director of the American Council on Science and Health offered a comprehensive report on e-cigarettes, concluding that e-cigarettes are much healthier than tobacco cigarettes according to common sense. He suggested that regulating e-cigs could be a deadly decision for public health.
3. BBC Horizon: Michael Mosley from BBC investigates the dramatic rise in e-cigarettes. They’re everywhere these days, but what does the latest scientific research on them reveal? Are they really better for you than cigarettes? What is actually in them? Is passive vapour harmful? And can they really stop you from smoking? Michael meets some of the scientists around the world studying them, asks a group of volunteers to try to give up smoking regular cigarettes using them, and even takes up ‘vaping’ himself, using an e-cigarette every day for a month to see the effects on his own health – no easy task for such a committed non-smoker.
4. Nicotine without smoke: Tobacco harm reduction by Royal College of Physicians – For all potential risks involved, harm reduction has huge potential to prevent death and disability from tobacco use, and to hasten progress to a tobacco free society. With careful management and proportionate regulation, harm reduction provides an opportunity to improve lives of millions of people. Concluded from the report presented by the Royal College of Physicians.
