Cigarettes wreak havoc on the body, damaging the user practically from head to toe. The harms have been proven beyond doubt. But there is scant evidence pointing to similar health effects from vaping—or any health problems, for that matter, unless you count nicotine dependence. But nicotine isn’t directly responsible for any of the terrible harms of smoking.
Public Health England has been unequivocal in its findings: the respected British agency says vaping is at least 95 percent safer than smoking. PHE researchers understand that studying the dangers of vaping alone is only half of the subject, since vaping exists primarily as an alternative to smoking. The potential risks of vaping are low, and they must be compared to the proven risks of smoking.
Vaping poses much lower risk to users than smoking.
