U.S. Study Shows Vaping Improves Lung Function

Can you believe it? An organization of US scientists recently published a study that showed vaping improved lung function for smokers who turned to this healthier option.

Does lung function improve with vaping?

The study recorded lung function of participants before they switched from smoking to vaping.

Lung function was again monitored after a year. The participants were grouped into 3: those who quit completely, those who reduced their smoking, and those who failed to quit.

The results

What the researchers noted was a big improvement in small, peripheral airway function for those who completely quit smoking by vaping.

Before the study, the most common symptoms the participants had were cough/phlegm and shortness of breath.

After the study, these symptoms were either completely eliminated or nearly gone for those who quit smoking through vaping.

Improvements were noted as well in those who reduced their smoking with vaping.

There was no improvement with those who kept smoking obviously.

Your lungs go through a lot when you smoke

The whole point of this article is that staying away from cigarettes greatly improves your lung functions which eventually improves your whole quality of life.

Vaping is the way to quit smoking

If you are having trouble quitting smoking, then take it from a former smoker who started at the tender age of 17, someone who once thought that cigarettes were an “inevitable evil” and something I had to live with for the rest of my life.

Vaping really works in getting you off the addiction of cigarettes. It’s the main reason why I came up with the idea for this blog.

If you can’t get off the cigarettes, then at least reduce how much you smoke with vaping. The study showed that reducing how much you smoke is still better than not quitting at all and you also get to experience the health improvements.

Former smoker turned vaper since 2013. I blog about questions that I and others might have about vaping. All I can say is it's a better alternative to cigarettes, nicotine gum, patches or medication, no matter what the Big Tobacco backed media says!
