electronic cigaretteE-Cigarette criticizers will surely be shocked by this new information that recently came into light.


There are about 1.3 billion smokers in the world to date. Unfortunately, this high number leads to about 6 million smoking related deaths per year. In the UK alone, smoking causes about 80,000 deaths per year. Adding to that disturbing fact, for every one of these 80,000 deaths there are about 20 more smokers who are suffering from diseases caused by tobacco use. This leads to around 450,000 admissions to the hospital every year. This is a major leading cause of death and one of the few that can be prevented, or if anything, better maintained.


There have been many have attempts to disrupt the huge growing popularity that e-cigarettes have created. Opposing people and organizations have tried to do this by increasing taxes on them, banning marketing and advertising of them, and also have tried to strictly enforce smoke-free work environments. If this were to happen in the United States then the long-term results projected that smoking will be reduced from 20% to 10% by 2030. Yes, this is a positive projection but this scenario still leaves millions at risk when there is other more efficient ways to quit smoking cigarettes.


E-cigarettes still continues to get more evidence supporting it. Out of the 2.1 million British adults who currently are using e-cigs, roughly one third are former cigarette smokers and about two thirds still smoke as well. Furthermore, there is even more evidence that supports e-cigarettes is evidence that falsifies the rumor saying that more young adults are starting to smoke due too the use of e-cigarettes. They are almost exclusively used by current smokers or past cigarette smokers. It turns out that there is no evidence supporting the theory that young adults are first experimenting with e-cigarettes.


The FDA recently revealed that they plan on regulating e-cigarettes as tobacco products. Keeping this in mind, the positive information that comes from smoking e-cigarettes should still be shared in order to at least have a better option for cigarette smokers. It is already believed that before 2100, there will be a billion tobacco related deaths. There is a big change E-cigarettes present: the chance to change that negative projected outcome for the future.
