The effect of vaping on the lungs-
The actual and more informative study for this purpose requires the statistics of living people vaping and the effects that happens to their lungs which is difficult in comparison to the cell studies. As there are very less people who vape regularly and for a long period of time, so all the studies have been conducted on short period vaping.
In short, the studies conducted till now have shown that short term vaping has very minor effects on the lungs, with a reduction in exhaled nitric oxide and small increases in airway resistance being the only effects that have been uncovered till date.
Studies on e-cigarettes and combustible cigarettes also found out that neither active nor passive vaping considerably affected lung function but active smoking significantly reduced lung function. Though passive smoking has a very less effect on the lungs, but its impact is greater than active vaping. Reduction in lung functions are also found in other studies of second-hand smoke exposure.
Though very less research and studies have been conducted on vaping but some evidence on asthmatic smokers suggests that switching to vaping results in improvements in spirometry readings. However the study was conducted on a very small number of participants, but the results were encouraging. It is also seen that the traditional smokers who have switched to vaping have seen improvements in their lung function.
The general conclusion from all the research till date says that vaping is almost certainly better for your lungs than smoking. This is shown by both the cell cultures as well as the studies of the real vapers. Vaping is projected to be around 95 percent safer than traditional smoking. In spite of this, a small risk still remains, and our lungs are considered the best place for it to surface. People usually say that not to inhale anything apart from air as that may be harmful, this advice id probably right, but when you have to choose between smoking and vaping, there is no question that you will be better off vaping.
