When it comes to vaping, the question remains whether electronic cigarettes are a healthier alternative to tobacco cigarettes, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
The researchers looked at the effects of e-cigarettes on the respiratory health of 1,854 adults, including 1,096 with respiratory disease.
They found that e-cigarette use was associated with an 18 percent lower risk of asthma, a 34 percent lower incidence of COPD, and a 30 percent lower mortality rate among adults.
They also found that electronic cigarettes use was linked to a 40 percent lower odds of developing COPD and a 35 percent lower rate of death from COPD.
In other words, the researchers found that vaping was associated not only with a lower risk for respiratory disease but also a lower death rate from COPd.
They concluded:There are currently no reliable studies demonstrating that electronic cigarette use is a safe or effective intervention to reduce the prevalence of COPd or mortality from COPds.
Electronic cigarettes are devices that deliver nicotine, and that nicotine is metabolized by the body into a chemical called propylene glycol.
The devices are a type of electronic cigarette that deliver the nicotine, along with a liquid containing propylene Glycol, into a device that heats the liquid to a higher temperature, making it less volatile.
The liquid can then be inhaled and exhaled.
The nicotine can also be absorbed through the skin, and can be inhated and inhaled.
Some experts believe the use of electronic cigarettes is growing rapidly in the U.S. and in other countries, with some countries even having laws banning the devices.
This growing use of e, in particular, could be connected to a rise in COPD deaths, said Dr. James J. Schulz, the chair of the department of preventive medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
But he said there’s still more work to be done to better understand how e-cigs work.
There are still a lot of unanswered questions about e-cig use and how they work, he said.
Electronics are becoming more popular, but they’re not widely accepted in the health care community, said Schulz.
We have to understand what they do better before we can start taking them seriously.
The authors of the new study said they don’t think e-Cigarettes are harmful.
But they said they’re still learning more about how eCigarette use might affect health.
