An independent study has found that e cigarette smokers are in fact saving themselves from exposure to the huge amount of harmful chemicals that accompany the traditional cigarette. As tobacco isn’t present in e cigs, there is no tar by product, which is one of the biggest causes of lung disease and cancer for smokers. The fact that tar has been taken out of the equation means it is automatically a lot less harmful than tobacco smoking.
Vapers, or electronic cigarette enthusiasts, are starting to reap the benefits are making the switch to electronic cigarettes; including the amount of money that can be saved.

Although doctors have specified that it is too early to treat e cigs as a harm reduction method, they went on to add that the potential is there. “It is the only available product that deals with both the chemical and psychological addiction.’
A recent report has found that the “levels of selected toxic compounds found in the smoke from a conventional cigarette were 9-450-fold higher than levels in the vapour of an e-cigarette” a positive result for e cig users who can now be sure they are no longer inhaling all the toxic chemicals that are associated with tobacco smoking.
