  • Smoking vs Vaping: Lab Test Results

    Smoking vs Vaping: Lab Test Results

    2019 is a great year to try to quit smoking and try vaping instead. Public Health England launched a campaign video that shows the dangers of traditional cigarettes by carrying out an experiment demonstrating how e-cigarettes are a lot less harmful.
    The Experiment that took place shows the impact of smoking cigarettes, vaping e-cigarettes and neither… the results are shocking!


    The Set-Up

    Taking place at the University College London, Dr Lion Shahab uses 3 bell jars for the experiment. One jar is set up to smoke the average number of cigarettes smoked by smokers in a month, the second jar is set up to vape an e-cigarette for the same amount of time and the third jar is clear air to demonstrate not smoking or vaping.


    As expected, the cigarette jar was revolting and contained lumps of tar. The video shows that a considerable amount of tar goes and stays inside the lungs, bear in mind, this is only after a month of smoking cigarettes.
    Unsurprisingly, the e-cigarette jar was as clean as a whistle. Due to the vapour, it caused the balls and jar to get wet and one of the balls suffered from a discolouration. Other than that, the jar, balls and tube were all clean…


    As we can see, Dr Lion Shahab’s research shows that e-cigarettes are significantly less harmful than cigarettes. We can also see that tar plays a big part in why tobacco products are very dangerous as tar causes lung cells to die and is linked to diseases such as heart disease, stroke, and cancer. Cigarette smoke destroys the “cilia” (fine hairs that line our upper airways and help protects us against infection).

    There are currently six million smokers in the UK, Public Health England thinks that about half a million of them will try and stop smoking this January. Will you be one of them?
