The benefits of e-cigs?

By now, you know that I am not a fan of tobacco smoking. I have to congratulate those who quit smoking tobacco by using e-cigs. But can you quit the vaping now? Vaping is not necessarily safer as it yet to be found out. UC San Francisco scientists have recently concluded that industry claims about vaping are unsupported, including claims that e-cigarettes help smokers quit. These devices are particularly gaining a popularity among youth, with the industry marketing them as a healthier alternative to tobacco smoking, and as a way to circumvent smoke-free laws when you can “smoke anywhere.” Vaping ads stress that e-cigarettes produce only “harmless water vapor.” UCSF found that e-cigs actually bring significantly lower odds of quitting cigarettes and also found that e-cigs emissions “are not merely ‘harmless water vapor,’ as is frequently claimed, and can be a source of indoor air pollution.” Smokers using e-cigs were about a third less likely to quit smoking than those who quit cold-turkey.
