The dispute around whether the benefits of e cig Australia are better than tobacco is still at large. Around 9000 studies have been done in regards to this subject and due to funding from companies who are directly involved with manufacturing, these studies have been declared bias. Thanks to research done by The Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives Association (CASAA), the credibility of above mentioned studies shouldn’t be disregarded.
Vaping has become one of the biggest topics in recent times. It has managed to put huge amounts of pressure on big companies like British American Tobacco to start researching their own electronic cigarettes just to stay in business. In its first study done on e-cigarettes, the CASAA contracted the help of Prof. Igor Burstyn to conduct and supervise the process. He is an environmental and occupational health specialist and retains an adjunct position in the Department of Medicine at Ultrecht University.
Prof. Burstyn was asked to study the previous 9000 observations made on e-cigarettes. According to his findings the chemicals found in both liquid and vapor were too small to be of any concern. He could not find any health risks involved with vaping and stated that no harm can come to those who come into contact with it. Prof. Burstyn paid particular attention to chemicals which raised concern in the first place like ethylene glycol, acrolein, nitrosamines, metals and formaldehyde. He concluded that the amounts used were perfectly safe.
Funding for this study came from donations which mean the results cannot be so easily discarded. The scientific director of CASAA, Carl V. Phillips went on the record stating that even in the worst conditions electronic cigarettes are still much healthier than tobacco. Keep in mind that CASAA is an independent company that strives to keep the public healthy. Considering the 4000 chemicals that go into a conventional cigarette, 50 of which are known to cause cancer, there is simply no logic in comparing vapor with smoke.
Apart from the many health benefits, one has to think about the general advantages. Second-hand smoke is non-existent. There aren’t any nasty smells that stick to clothes and skin. Teeth stains are not even an issue and it costs significantly less than tobacco. Even though there is still some research to be done, there is no evidence to prove that tobacco is in any way better. On the contrary there is more than enough evidence to prove tobacco is very dangerous.
Looking at the study done by Prof. Burstyn it’s safe to assume that lung and throat cancer cannot be associated with vaping. Traditional tobacco attacks every organ in the body whereas vapor doesn’t. Tobacco smokers are often left breathless just by walking up a flight of stairs. It simply doesn’t make sense to argue about this subject. Hardcore smokers who are still pro-tobacco are hanging on to a wishful thread that science might just fall in their favor when in truth it isn’t possible.
The case against e cig Australia is all smoke and mirrors. It’s only a matter of time until tobacco finally burns out.
