16 Studies EVERY Vaper Needs To Read RIGHT Now
Think the FDA cares about your health? Think again – the current war on vaping will do WAY more harm than good
Latest VapeBeat E-Juice Store Deals (USA Only):
The mainstream media — well, most of it anyway — has done its absolute best to support, push and propagandise the FDA’s draconian deeming regulations that were designed with one purpose in mind: destroy vaping.
And I am sad to say it is working. All over the US, shops, businesses and retailers are shutting down. Their crime? Helping people stop smoking cigarettes.
I know. Stupid, right?
They don’t care about you. They care about dollars and their buddies’ dollars.
This is why vaping is being destroyed.
It’s happening because a solution, with ZERO cost to the tax payer, has been presented to the public and the public, of its own free will, has embraced it wholeheartedly and this has resulted in A LOT of powerful entities — big tobacco, big pharma — losing out on A LOT of money.
So what did they do?
They called on their buddies in government, via lobbyists, to get rid of the problem.
And how did they do that? The same way they do everything — they just lied and lied and lied until people accepted it as fact.
Sound familiar? It should. This is how politics is done in this country now. Granted, this is probably how it’s always been done. But it doesn’t make it right — not by a long shot.
So what can us, vapers, do about this?
Quite a bit as it goes. But the most important part is education.
Educate yourself, your friends, smokers, non-smokers, zealots, hell… even your grandparents and anybody else that will listen.
Below are 16 scientific studies that debunk and disprove every piece of anti-vaping propaganda pushed by the FDA and its stooges.

- Smoking Kills, and So Might E-Cigarette Regulation: Gilbert Ross MD, is a medical and executive director of the American Council on Science and Health. In this special report on The American, he states “simple common sense would dictate that inhaling the fewer, less harmful ingredients of e-cigarettes as compared to inhaling the thousands of chemicals in the smoke from burnt tobacco, many of which have been shown to be carcinogenic, is highly likely to be healthier.” Published November, 2013.

- E-Liquids Shown To Have Low Cytotoxicity (PDF): The results of testing of 20 e-liquids, has revealed the majority of the vapor samples were found to have no adverse effects on cardiac cells.

Published October 2013 in the International Journal of Environmental Research And Public Health.
- Nicotine Levels Selection and Patterns of Electronic Cigarette Use: Study from Dr. Konstantinos E. Farsalinos that concludes nicotine levels seem to play a crucial role in achieving and maintaining smoking cessation in a group of motivated subjects. The study involved 111 participants who completely substituted smoking with electronic cigarette use for at least 1 month. Published September 2013.
- Vaping: coronary circulation and oxygen supply (PDF): Recent research indicates that electronic cigarette use does not affect the oxygenation of the heart. Lead by principle investigator Dr Konstantinos Farsalinos; results of the research were presented at the European Society of Cardiology annual congress in Amsterdam in August, 2013.
- Eliquids: No Health Concerns: A study by Professor Igor Burstyn of Drexel University School of Public Health based on a review available data has confirmed chemicals generally found in ecig eliquids pose no health concerns. Published August 2013 (PDF).
- MHRA Ecigarette Research: The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) carried out extensive research on ecigarettes, arriving at the conclusion there was little concern that e-cigarettes can harm users by delivering toxic nicotine levels and little evidence of non-smokers taking up electronic cigarettes. Published in June 2013.
- Evaluation of Electronic Cigarette Use And Liquid Consumption: This 2013 study challenges an EU proposal that would result in eliquids containing more than 4 milligrams of nicotine per milliliter being banned unless approved as medicinal products.
- Electronic Cigarettes Do Not Damage The Heart: Electronic cigarettes appear to have no acute adverse effects on cardiac function according to research by cardiologist Dr Konstantinos Farsalinos. He says based on currently available data, ecigs are safer and that substituting tobacco with electronic cigarettes could be beneficial to health.
