A recent study by researchers in Italy reveals vapor inhaled from electronic cigarettes is not causing long-term health damage to users who do not smoke tobacco.

Scientists at the University of Catania in Italy conducted a three and a half year study investigating the effects of regular vaping on the body of the user. They followed a group of daily vapers between the ages of 23 and 35 who had never smoked tobacco and another group who did not use either product as a reference, monitoring blood pressure, heart rate, body weight, lung function, respiratory symptoms, exhaled breath nitric oxide [eNO] and exhaled carbon monoxide [eCO], reports Hindustan Times.

The researchers, led by international asthma specialist Dr. Riccardo Polosa, also conducted high-resolution computed tomography [HRCT] of the lungs of users, which showed no signs of disease. Overall, the scientist did not observe any “significant changes” in the health of daily e-cigarette users and the reference group.

“There was no evidence of health concerns associated with long-term use of e-cigarettes in the relatively young users who did not smoke tobacco,” said Polosa, director of the University of Catania, according to the Hindustan Times.

The study adds long-term evidence to a growing body of research showing vaping vastly reduces the risk of developing tobacco-related cancers. E-cigarettes eliminate up to 95 percent of the health risks associated with cigarettes, because the majority of disease-causing chemicals are only released through combustion, according to Public Health England.

Recent research also shows vapor from e-cigarettes does not pose any meaningful secondhand risks. A forthcoming study investigating the health impact of aerosol vapor emitted from the devices shows that chemical levels in the vapor released from e-cigarettes are well below the safety limits suggested by both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organization.

The research, set to be published in the Journal of Aerosol Science in January, determined that vaping is statistically 5,700 times less harmful to users than combustible cigarettes, drastically reducing the risk of developing smoking related illnesses.
