Bloomberg reported on a study that was presented by researchers from the Athens-based Onassis Cardiac Surgery Center.
The study, which showed that electronic cigarettes show "no connection to heart disease", was presented at the European Society of Cardiology annual meeting in Munich on August 27th.
"Investigators examined the heart activity of 20 young daily
smokers after one ordinary cigarette against 22 people who
smoked an electronic cigarette for 7 minutes. Whereas tobacco
smokers showed “significant” disruptions of functions such as
heartbeats or blood pressure, the effect of e-cigarettes on the
heart was minimal, Konstantinos Farsalinos, one of the
researchers, said in the presentation"
Farsalinos also added: "Currently available data suggest that electronic
cigarettes are far less harmful, and substituting tobacco with
electronic cigarettes may be beneficial to health."
It's nice to see a story from a major news organization that doesn't include the typical scare-tactic nonsense and false information from those who's only agenda is to eliminate vaping completely. Anyway, you can read the entire Bloomberg article here.
