Scientists from the University of Greece say that E-cigs harm the lungs.
So many people are trying to study and analyze electronic cigarettes when there is nothing really to analyze that much in detail. People have their own opinions, but it has said to have been proven that electronic cigarettes in no way can harm the lungs seeing as it is only vapor being inhaled. The scientists did a test where they used regular smokers, non smokers, and people with asthma and COPD. They made them each use an electronic cigarette for ten minutes while they observed airway resistance. They said that the results from the non smokers were “Significantly Increased” airway resistance. It supposedly increased their airway resistance from 182% to 206%. The regular smokers were said to have “a significant rise in airway resistance to 220%, from 176% after using one e-cigarette for ten minutes.” The people with asthma and/or COPD “experienced no significant increase in airway resistance from using one e-cigarette for ten minutes.” So these scientists came up with this short experiment, and posted the findings on the internet.

So should we believe that this is true because they did some very short and probably rushed tests, or should we believe what we already do. I know I believe that there is no way electronic cigarettes can harm the lungs, but like I said earlier everyone has got there own opinion. If studies keep coming out like this who’s to say that they won’t decide to ban e-cigs. That would be Terrible with a capital T.
