Leading UK public health organizations agree, that although not completely risk-free, the e-cigarette is far less harmful than the regular cigarette. They also claim, based on available research, that the risk reduction is estimated to be at least 95%.

According to a study that was recently presented on the E-Cigarette Summit in London and published in the Nature journal, vapers that have never smoked regular cigarettes experience no apparent long-term negative health effects from vaping.
A research group led by Dr Riccardo Polosa measured coronary, respiratory and pulmonary vital signs in a group of young vapers with a 3.5 years vaping experience and no prior cigarette smoking history. A similar group of non-vapers, no smokers has tested as well as a control group.

Viability of Human Airway cells during aerosol exposure. Copyright British American Tobacco Plc.
According to tests performed by British American Tobacco and tissue engineering firm MatTek Corp., the E-Cigarette vapor is no more dangerous to human airways and respiratory tissue than air.
The results were obtained using a combination of laboratory tests and VITROCELL smoking robot with MatTek EpiAirway tissue. The robot was used to inhale cigarette smoke, e- cigarette vapors, and air through EpiAirway tissue to test the influence of smoke and vapor on human respiratory tissue. Cigarette smoke was inhaled in accordance with the standard ISO 3308:2012 (35 mL puffs drawn over 2 s with 1 min intervals) while the electronic cigarette vapors were inhaled with a 80 mL puffs drawn over 3 s with 30 s intervals as currently there is no […]
In the 16th century, French doctor Jean Nicot prescribed tobacco as a medication to his patients and it is his name that gave name to Nicotine.
In the year 1828 Nicotine has been isolated for the first time, in 1843 its chemical composition was recognized and it was first time synthesized in 1904.
Nicotine is a colorless, odorless, and oily substance obtained from tobacco leaves via water vapor distillation in an alkaline environment and Ether Extraction or via Supercritical Extraction. It is mainly used in the tobacco industry but also can be found in smoking cessation products, such as nicotine bases or electronic cigarette e-liquids. It is also an ingredient in some pesticides.
