Here are the research results of some common controversial topics in the use of e-cigarettes. Each topic is accompanied by relevant research and strong refutation basis.

Eight popular science knowledge of electronic cigarette


1. Secondhand steam smoke is not dangerous

Igor Burstyn, a toxicologist at Drexel University, concluded after the study that there was no risk of second-hand steam smoke. The study was funded by e-cigarette users of the consumer advocate smokeless substitution Association (casaa).

Is there any smell in the e-cigarette room?


2. Vaping can improve smokers' lung function

Several studies have found that the use of e-cigarettes does not have adverse effects on the lungs. What is most impressive is the research done by Dr. polosa. In asthmatic patients who smoke, when they use electronic cigarettes instead of or reduce the amount of smoking, the patient's lung function has been significantly improved.

Dr. polosa wrote: "e-cigarettes may help smokers with asthma to quit smoking or reduce the amount of smoking, so as to reduce the adverse effects of smoking on asthma. The positive results of the use of e-cigarettes enable us to put forward the hypothesis that e-cigarette products have a certain value in helping smokers with asthma to quit smoking or reduce the harm of cigarettes."


3. The harm of nicotine alone is not great

Nicotine is less addictive than other non expert drugs such as heroin or cocaine. Many studies have put forward views on nicotine addiction. Dr. etter, a French expert, found that smoking is more addictive than nicotine.

"Some e-cigarette users will think of e-cigarette oil containing nicotine, but the addiction of these products is much lower than that of cigarettes. The addiction of e-cigarettes may be the same as or lower than that of nicotine gum," etter and eissenberg said


4. E-cigarettes are not full of formaldehyde

After the "New England Journal of medicine" claimed that electronic cigarette products contain high concentrations of formaldehyde, Dr. farsalinos conducted experiments to prove that high concentrations of formaldehyde can be produced only when the atomizer is overheated and has serious dry burning.

The scientist explained: "e-cigarettes only produce high concentrations of formaldehyde when burned dry. When the oil is overheated, the oil will produce a strong sense of discomfort and make users refuse to use it. Under normal circumstances, the aldehyde emission of e-cigarettes is very small, even under the latest high-power equipment."


5. Sweet tobacco oil is not aimed at children

Every e-cigarette player will hear such a frightening saying that candy and fruit flavored cigarette oil is launched for children. I believe everyone who has experienced quitting smoking will have the experience of replacing cigarettes with other flavors of food.


6. The toxin of e-cigarette is significantly lower than that of cigarette

Almost every week, there is a study on e-cigarette steam. Many studies, including Dr. goniewicz, have proved that the toxin in e-cigarette smoke is much lower than that in cigarette smoke.


7. The use of electronic cigarettes has less relapse

Some junk studies claim that e-cigarettes will make users who have quit smoking relapse. A group of top experts from Britain have proved this wrong. They also said that e-cigarette users have less relapse than other smoking cessation methods.


8. E-cigarettes will not guide people to use cigarettes

It is the ugliest statement that e-cigarettes will lead people to use cigarettes. We can find that every research that publishes relevant arguments has problems in research methods, or the sample size of the research is very small. The respected tobacco researchers did not find that e-cigarettes would guide people to use cigarettes. They even asked colleagues to set up relevant areas for e-cigarettes to prevent cigarettes.
