Study Shows That Vaping Has ‘No Significant Effect’ On The Non-Smoker

Study Shows That Vaping Has ‘No Significant Effect’ On The Non-Smoker

 

 

Many studies have shown that vaping is a healthier alternative to cigarettes and a great way to kick the habit. Most studies look at the effects of people who use vaping to kick the cigarette habit. However, a new study looked into the effects of vaping on “never smokers” and concluded that there was “no significant change” to the health of non-smokers that take up vaping.  

 

The Study


The study from Scientific Reports, published in June 2017, is the first study looking at the effects of vaping on the non-smoker. It concluded that “no significant changes could be detected” for a vaper’s health, even when referenced against a control group that have neither smoked nor vaped before.


The study focused on the health of nine people who used vapes on a daily basis but had never before smoked cigarettes, while cross-referencing those health reports against a control group of twelve “never smokers” and “non-vapers.”


The study was conducted over the course of three and a half years.


Who Participated?


Subjects in the study were identified as regular customers from vape shops and in order to be considered as “never smokers” they had to have answered that they smoked less than 100 cigarettes in their lifetime, while also having vaped on a daily basis for at least three months.


Scientific Reports noted as a premise for its report that “very little is known about the long-term health effects of vaping” and that part of the difficulty is the crossover effects of former smokers who have been in smokers for a long period of time before coming in contact with vapour.


By creating the control group and cross referencing the group to a control group, the study sought to circumvent the difficulty of producing data about the effects of vaping for the non-smoker. The impact of vaping on health in the long term was contained in an attempt to give an accurate picture of the effects that vaping has in general.


What Was Looked At?


The study looked at a number of different health concerns associated with smoking and vaping. Those included tests on blood pressure, heart rate, body weight, lung function, respiratory symptoms, as well as exhaled biomarkers of airway inflammation (exhaled breath nitric oxide) and carbon monoxide.


Additionally, the vaping test subjects were also given a high-resolution computed tomography (an x-ray cross-section) of the lungs at the end of follow-up to assess the risk of long-term lung damage. While the effects of the study shows no adverse effects over the three and a half years, the study admits that the long term effects of vaping over a lifetime could not be concluded due to the limited constraints.


Other health effects showed no conclusive changes for vapers. This included no pathological changes nor could they see any adverse effects to lungs or respiratory systems. This study by Scientific Reports shows that not only is vaping a healthier alternative to cigarettes, but also a safer bet for people interested in vaping for the first time.
