Smoking e-cigarettes instead of tobacco reduces the risk of cancer, according to Health New Zealand.
Dr. Murray Laugesen, who heads the organization, argued that switching from tobacco to e-cigarettes reduces the risk of lung cancer. Citing previous research on smoking, Laugesen noted that nicotine consumption alone does not cause cancer.
Think about the millions of people who have used nicotine gum or the patch. Have they developed cancer? To be sure, the use of traditional smoking cessation methods is not associated with cancer. Tobacco is associated with cancer (and a long list of other diseases) because of many of the other chemicals contained in cigarette smoke.
In this light, it makes sense that switching to e-cigarettes might reduce the risk of cancer.
Thanks for pointing this out, Health New Zealand!
This holiday season, as you’re thinking about what to buy for the smokers in your life, why not consider an electronic cigarette?
Let’s face it. We all hope to buy reasonably-priced gifts that will help others make positive changes to their lives. What’s better than helping your loved ones quit smoking tobacco?
Electronic cigarettes, also known as e-cigarettes, are battery-operated devices that emit doses of nicotine. One advantage of the e-cigarette is that users can control the amount of nicotine they consume. Users can buy a variety of flavors, including those that mimic traditional cigarettes, or foods, such as strawberry or cheesecake.
There is substantial evidence that e-cigarettes may be a useful smoking cessation method. For example, research published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that two-thirds (66.8%) of the 222 smokers surveyed smoked less after using e-cigarettes for six months, nearly half (48.8%) quit smoking cigarettes for a period of time, and almost a third (31%) quit smoking completely.
E-cigarettes are also more effective than traditional smoking cessation tools (such as nicotine patches or gum) at helping people quit smoking tobacco cigarettes. Traditional smoking cessation programs tend to have dismal success rates, varying between 19 and 27 percent. According to the Surgeon General, nicotine gum has a success rate of 27 percent, followed by 25 percent with an inhaler, 23 percent with the nicotine patch, and 19 percent with nicotine gum (short-term use).
E-cigarettes have become so popular in recent years because most users believe that they are safer alternatives to tobacco cigarettes. E-cigarettes, for example, do not emit the cancer-causing chemicals that tobacco cigarettes do, such as benzene, formaldehyde, and carbon monoxide.
Most users report better breathing soon after switching from tobacco cigarettes to e-cigarettes.
If you’re trying to helping someone quit smoking, try getting them an electronic cigarette. There’s a good chance that they will lead healthier, happier lives.

Since the economic crisis began in 2008, American households have been forced to seriously evaluate their spending habits, with smokers having to make some tough decisions. For most of us, quitting tobacco creates the grim challenge of facing intolerable withdrawal symptoms.
Then there are the costs. Because of America’s endless love affair with taxing tobacco products, the average pack of cigarettes is more than $6. If you live in places like New York City, you’ll spend about $10 a pack! This means that smoking a pack a day for one year would cost $3,650!
The increased cost of smoking tobacco during a recession may partly explain why so many smokers have switched from tobacco to electronic cigarettes. In 2010, about 750,000 e-cigarettes were sold. In the following year, sales more than tripled to 2.5 million. So far in 2012, sales are closing in on 4 million units.
While switching to electronic cigarettes can ease some of your financial woes, it may make you feel better, too. Smoking electronic cigarettes may be safer than smoking tobacco cigarettes because less nicotine is absorbed when smoking electronic cigarettes than tobacco cigarettes.
Recent research concluded that smoking e-cigarettes does not affect heart function. There is also substantial anecdotal evidence from users that switching to electronic cigarettes improved their breathing, and some even report sleeping better.
As the holiday season begins and you start thinking about gifts for family and friends, you might consider electronic cigarettes for the smokers in your life. It will keep some cash in their wallets, and it may even make them feel better.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Thanks to Agence Nomad for posting this chart comparing tobacco and electronic cigarettes. The infographic shows some of the cancer-causing chemicals in tobacco cigarettes, which include the same chemicals found in paint stripper, welding torches, ant poison, napalm, lighter fluid, car batteries, car exhaust fumes, insecticides, embalming fluid, lethal execution by gas, paint, gasoline, rocket fuel, cockroach poison, toilet cleaner, industrial solvent, and plastics.
On the contrary, liquid for electronic cigarettes includes only propylene glycol, glycerol, aromas, and nicotine!
The chart also shows that second-hand smoke from tobacco cigarettes is far more dangerous than vapor emitted from electronic cigarettes, a claim that is consistent with recent studies. For example, research reported on this blog found that second-hand vapor is not harmful to health.
More recently, European researchers found that "the quality and quantity of chemicals released to the environment are by far less harmful for the human health compared to regular tobacco cigarettes."
Second-hand vapor is not harmful to human health, according to research conducted at Clarkson University.
The study, published in this month's Inhalation Toxicology, examined vaporized e-cigarette liquid and compared it to smoke produced by tobacco cigarettes.
The researchers found "no significant risk of harm to human health for vapor samples from e-liquids." In contrast, the study confirmed that tobacco smoke posed a substantial risk to human health because of its cancer-causing chemicals.
These results are important for e-cigarette users everywhere because they confirm that electronic cigarettes pose no substantial risk to public health, especially when compared to tobacco cigarettes. Click here for more information on electronic cigarettes vs. tobacco cigarettes.
We hope that this research informs public policy and convinces lawmakers that e-cigarettes are a far better alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes!
