A study commissioned by National Vapers Club and published in the medical journal Inhalation Toxicology looked at the effect of electronic cigarette vapor on indoor air quality in comparison to cigarette smoke.  The study–called IVAQS for indoor vapor air quality study–confirms and supports previous findings that determine electronic cigarettes to be a far less harmful alternative to conventional cigarettes.

The study was performed by Consulting for Health, Air, Nature, & A Greener Environment,  the Center for Air Resources Science & Engineering, and Clarkson University and funded by National Vapers Club through various donations and fundraising efforts.  National Vapers Club is a consumer-driven organization focused on helping the electronic cigarette industry grow in a way that is both competitive to other markets and fair and safe to its consumers.

The study’s results mirrored previous studies that found levels of various compounds emitted by e-cig use to be between one-tenth and one-thousandth of that of conventional cigarettes.  Many compounds released by conventional cigarettes weren’t found in electronic cigarette vaper at all.

According to Dr. Michael Siegel of Boston University’s School of Public Health, “This study demonstrates that the risks of secondhand vapor from electronic cigarette use are very small in comparison to those associated with secondhand tobacco smoke.”  He continues, “While secondhand smoke must be eliminated in workplaces and public places, the current data provide no justification for eliminating electronic cigarette use in these places.”

Dr. Murray Laugesen, a public health medicine specialist for Health New Zealand cut to the chase in talking about the study.  “The results of this study confirm the findings of my last 4 years of research,” said Laugesen.  “E-cigarettes pose no discernible risk to public health.”

    WooHoo!! Love to see these studies! It’s really a no brainer that e-cigs are so much safer than real cigarettes … but until we have evidence in black and white… people will continue to fear that they are just another way to smoke. And nothing could be farther from the truth! Vaping and smoking are completely different and it’s high time that people see HOW different they really are!

    This fact alone allows me to vape in my office and keeps me behind the desk working the whole time where I’d take a break almost every 45 minutes for a cigarette.

    IT’S ABOUT TIME ECIGS AND VAPING HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR ALMOST FIVE YEARS AND WE HAVE SEEN THIS AWESOME NEW TECHNOLOGY BASHED AT EVERY TURN. WE HAVE BEEN FEARFULLY WAITING ON THE FDA TO SHUT US DOWN AS SOME OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE DONE, BUT WITH NEW SCIENCE AND MORE DATA TO THE POSITIVE WE MIGHT JUST STAND A CHANCE AT BEATING THE EVIL MONEY HUNGRY PEOPLE OF THE WORL TO LET US BE SO THIS INDUSTRY CAN CONTINUE TO GROW AND FLURISH… JUST MY 0.02¢ WORTH…

    the internet will probably be a lot more useful than ever before.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout
    of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  23. Bernard says

    Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a completely
    different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Outstanding
    choice of colors!
