“The nicotine, present in E-cigarettes, is not responsible for the health risks that tobacco cigarettes hold”
Dr. Clifford Hulley, one of the participating medical professionals in the survey, states that "an e-cigarette is the most effective treatment method on the market for quitting tobacco smoking".
In a former study, made by Dr. Murray Laugeson, head of research in the New Zealand FDA, was found that: “Electronic cigarettes are very safe relative to cigarettes, and also safe in absolute terms on all measurements.
Each puff from an E-cigarette contains very small amounts of Nicotine and propylene glycol; both are well known molecules totally safe when inhaled. The amount of Nicotine releases in every puff is equal to 1/3 of the amount a classic average cigarette.
Dr. Matt Salmon, Head of the Electronic Cigarette Association (Eca) in the USA, is saying: “the risk of illness and death from smoking related diseases is 99% smaller when smoking E-cigarette, then when smoking traditional tobacco cigarette. Tobacco cigarette smoking is responsible to over than 400,000 death cases a year, only in the U.S, more than car accidents, drugs, Aids, fires homicides and suicides all together.
Even if it was 50% safer – it could of saved around 200,000 Americans lives every year, now imagine the truth – it is 99% safer! It can save more than 390,000 people every year –
Amazing fact isn’t it?
