    I do not know if I should laugh or cry ...

    https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/128908/british-israeli-health-experts-electronic-cigarettes/

    Some excerpts :

    "the claim that there is a reduction in damage has no scientific basis"

    "To argue that an electronic cigarette is less harmful than a regular cigarette is, at this stage, equivalent to the claim that a heart attack is less harmful than cancer,”

    "the evidence of the contribution of electronic cigarettes to smoking cessation is limited, while studies show that the use of electronic cigarettes increases the difficulty of quitting smoking; The British figure in the electronic cigarette has only 5% That is, 95% less than a regular cigarette does not include scientific evidence of reduced damage of the same magnitude"

    "We already know that electronic cigarettes are suspected of causing seizures among teenagers, based on reports from the field, and recent studies also indicate a link between nicotine and cancer"

    And it comes from a member of the Israel Cancer Association ...

    I'm not a scientist, but I remember what I felt like when I still smoked and what I feel like now after vaping for almost 3 years.
    I don't have the tightness in my chest, shortness of breath, high blood pressure or the smell of an ashtray anymore.
    So i'll come to my own conclusion that vaping is a hell of a lot better than smoking.

    So it comes from an association that'd be less relevant and get less funding if cancer rates dropped? Gosh, what a surprise.
