New E Cig Study Finds Lower Risk in Vapor Versus Smoke

March 8, 2013

Tobacco Control, a peer-reviewed journal for health professionals and others in tobacco control recently published an international study on the risks associated with e cigarettes.  The study reveals that the levels of toxicants in e cigs are “9-450 times lower than in cigarette smoke and were, in many cases comparable with trace amounts found in the reference product.”  The study concludes that its findings are “consistent with the idea that substituting with e cigarettes may substantially reduce exposure to selected tobacco-specific toxicants.”
