Study Says E-cigarettes Not Tied To Risk Of Heart Disease

In an article published this week, 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.

From Bloomberg.com:

"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.
