There is little, a study published in Tobacco Control identified a low risk of cancer with the use of electronic cigarettes compared to smoking, Today an Italian study to appear in the Journal of Aerosol Science focused on assessing the cancer risk associated with the microparticles present in the vapor emitted by the vaping devices. On his website E-cigarette Research, Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos commented the latter estimating that the risk of cancer with vaping was 57 000 times less important than with smoking.
In this new study, Italian researchers have tried to calculate the risk of vaping exposure compared to smoking. If the authors used measurements of the size and distribution of the masses of the particles, the Dr. Konstantinos Farsanlinos specifies, however, that Contrary to the scientifically erroneous argument that only the number and size of particles are important, they calculated the risk based on the scientific literature for the composition of aerosol and particles".
According to the Greek researcher the study reveals that the vapor of e-cigarettes exposes to microparticles less than 10 μg (PM10) more than 100 times compared to smoking .. " Fanatical supporters of particulate matter theory (which is a misguided scientific interpretation) will argue that e-cigarettes can multiply cancer risk by a factor of 100 over smoking. However, careful evaluation of e-liquid composition has shown that the cancer risk for vapers is about 5 times lower than for smokers. »
To be exact, they have identified that the lifetime cancer risk (ELCR) with vaping was 57 000 times less important that with smoking.
