One of the main arguments against electronic cigarettes is the absence of studies that have been conducted over time on them – particularly in comparison to products that are federally approved, like nicotine patches. After a long time, a study of a longer duration on vaping was published.

A five-year study of five years focused on the extent of COPD symptoms for smokers who switched to electronic cigarettes was published. Overall, they saw improvement for severe COPD episodes as well as lung function among patients who decided to stay with vaping and found that the progress didn’t diminish with time.

There was also a wealth of additional information in the study worth mentioning.

Dual users were excluded from respiratory results. This was not the norm in earlier studies, possibly because of confusion about vapes. However, more recent studies have them grouped differently because they have distinct behaviors and risks. It is interesting to note that an investigation that began five years ago grouped them differently.

At first, there were 20 people in the electronic cigarette testing group. In the course of the five-year time frame, four users were removed from the study and either returned to smoking cigarettes or quit smoking. At an initial glance, it may seem like a remarkable success rate. At a minimum, the study found that 80% of its subjects stopped smoking cigarettes for five years. While the figure is sufficient to warrant an investigation, it’s not a reliable figure regarding whether or not vaping can help smokers quit smoking.

If you intend to investigate the effects of vaping for a long time, It is sensible to select subjects who will remain vaping throughout testing. Picking a person who will likely quit vaping after two years is not a good idea in order to determine how long-term vaping can impact the subject. As a general measure of the extent to which electronic cigarettes helped in the process of the cessation of smoking cigarettes, it isn’t an accurate number.

Finally, they found that nicotine and devices alter as time passes. The study was conducted from September 2013 to October 2019. Juul and the development of nicotine salts were first noticed in the year 2015. The study is long-term. Yes, but the vaping industry is growing so quickly that it no longer is even addressing the primary issues of those who oppose vaping.
