Study: Electronic Cigarettes No Threat To Heart

A small study in Greece has found that electronic cigarettes pose little to no risk to the heart.  This compliments another Greek study that found electronic cigarettes have very little impact on lung function.

The study was presented by Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos from the Onassis Cardiac Surgery Center in Athens at the European Society of Cardiology’s annual meeting.

The study looked at the heart function of 20 smokers before and after smoking a cigarette and 22 e-cig users after 7 minutes using the device.  What they found wasn’t entirely shocking but supports belief that electronic cigarettes are far safer than traditional cigarettes.

The smokers experienced raised blood pressure and heart rate among other issues.  Electronic cigarette users in the study only experienced a slight elevation in blood pressure.

Health professionals still agree that this is far from the conclusive evidence necessary to define the health effects of electronic cigarettes (certainly more needs to look at the long term effects).  But this is another step towards understanding and proving that electronic cigarettes are a healthier alternative to smoking.

In the most simple terms, less chemicals means less problems.

      Very interesting.

      All we need is a long term study for excessive inhalation of pg and vg. Im sure certain additives, used for flavor and sweetness, may have some type of reaction with our insides.

        This is excellent!!! I knew my BP had improved since I started vaping, but it’s nice to see a written reason as to why. Good to know vaping doesn’t have the same effects.

          This is really good news and this side of the ecig debate needs more attention brought out to the public everywhere. I smoked for 30yrs and I quit regular cigarettes three days after I started ecigs. I am a person who has heart problems and low blood pressure so when I say ALL my doctors said YES please try the ecig and now are thrilled with the change in my blood work and over all change in health that is really saying a lot in favor of ecigs and vaping. They even asked me to recommend some companies because they have fathers and loved ones who won’t try because they like cigars or certain flavors. So if my doctors are in and asking for advice that should say it all.

            This is a great start. With all the crap in cigarettes it has to be better than smoking and if I wasn’t vaping I would be smoking so that is what really matters to me.

              I want more studys about “second hand vapor”

                The more studies we have like this the closer we will be to having a healthier society. Cancer takes the lives of so many and if electronic cigarettes could cut that down by 20% It would be amazing. I think we are well on our way to this.

                  No threat? I don’t think there is NO threat, but it is definitely a lot less that cigarettes

                                Love it! Jennifer looks stunning here. The one flaw is definitely the cup size. It’s pulling her chest down. That said I love the fit, color, and material. Also, I kind of liked the ballgown!

                                  I’ve recently started E-Cig, my smoking has cut down from a pack a day to a pack almost a week. I feel the impact in my head almost emediatly and sometimes I can feel the nicotine in my nerve endings. A sharp tingling or a tickle in all kind of spots in my body-that seem to be nerve endings-
                                  If I’m working and e-cig at the same time I do find myself falling off track rather quickly- this has not been a feeling I have ever felt just smoking-
                                  This has been the reason for me to search out research, any feed back greatly appreciated, Aloha
