A new independent study that reproduced 3 previous nodal studies presents further evidence of how much safer evaporation is than smoking. The researchers point out that this is the first independent study, which confirms similar previous conclusions that have emerged from similar research in the tobacco industry.

In this context, the authors went on to analyze how bronchial cells (i.e. the cells that make up the barrier between the outside air we breathe and the inside of the respiratory system) take in both traditional cigarette smoke. , as well as the steam of evaporating products.

Where did they come to a conclusion? The fact that evaporation causes little or no damage to the lungs!

The researchers found in practice that vaporizing products have a "significantly reduced toxicity" compared to cigarette smoke. In fact, in most of the experiments performed, vaporization was shown to cause almost no toxicity. They also confirmed that it is mainly volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in traditional cigarette smoke and not nicotine, which make them dangerous for the lungs.

The research also provided evidence that vaporization causes little or no damage to the lung epithelium, compared to the damage caused by burning cigarettes. Because the lung epithelium serves as a key defense point, filtering out potentially harmful compounds, the destruction of this area by smoking can prove to be extremely dangerous to health and cause cancer or other very serious diseases.
