Safer Smoke: E-Cigarettes 95% Healthier Than Tobacco
Friday, 21 August 2015 | Penelope
Electronic Cigarettes have come a long way from their emergence onto the market over a decade ago. People were understandably wary about these strange new things that looked like something out of a sci-fi movie, charged up via USB and puffed out strawberry-scented smoke, but Health and Care have always been convinced! That's why we’re one of the biggest providers of electronic cigarettes in the UK — we know the power of the e-cig, and how they can help improve your life and your health. Now it looks like we’re no longer alone in our thinking after Public Health England recently reported that not only should e-cigs be prescribed on the NHS as a healthy alternative to smoking, the vaping devices are also a staggering 95% less harmful than tobacco!
From market newbie to unrivalled leader in just 10 years, E-cigs have done something that none of the 1.8 million smoking-cessation items previously offered by the NHS could – making quitting fashionable. A-listers like Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp and Simon Cowell all took a shine to their shiney vaporisers ensuring that everyone knew about the craze, surprisingly though, almost 50% of those same people didn’t realise it was actually a far healthier alternative to tobacco.
And these nifty little sticks have more than the obvious tobacco-busting benefits going for them. Able to be smoked anywhere, they don’t fall under the smoking ban, which means you no longer have to leave your mates in the club to get your fix, or come back smelling of smoke, or annoy non-smokers standing nearby. Who doesn’t like the smell of strawberries (or cherry, or apple, or vanilla)?
Converts to e-cigarettes have cited reasons as simple as being able to vape while watching Coronation Street instead of having to march to the top of the garden to keep the stink of smoke at bay, or the more altruistic desire to not have friends and loved ones suffer harmful second-hand smoke. With this new study confirming that e-cigarettes pose no risk to passive smokers as well as no risk of nicotine poisoning, it’s estimated that the annual number of smoking-related deaths could be halved if standard cigarettes were replaced with an e-cigarette. With the pros of the e-cig now bolstered by the latest research, we’re sure the nation are about to start seeing them as less of a gimmick and more of a serious game-changer when it comes to improving your life for the better.
