Vapor vs Real Cig results


VAPOR TEST RESULTS BY KOREA ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE ASSOCIATION

The Korea Electronic Cigarette Association (KECA) ordered a test on the vapor produced by an electronic cigarette versus the smoke of a traditional tobacco cigarette. In Korea, there was so much misinformation and unfounded reports about electronic cigarettes that they did not know who to trust.  They conducted the test to prove that cigarettes are more harmful than e-cigarettes, or not.

The KECA website shows the processes of the test.

What was tested: inhaled smoke from a cigarette and inhaled vapor from an e-cig.

How: By a scientific machine that reads the inhaled components.

Tested method: assuming 8 puffs per 1 cigarette VS 8 puffs on an e-cigarette, repeated 16 times and 24 times.

Result of Vapor Test

E-cigarette VS Normal Cigarette

Condition: 8 puffs per 1 cigarette for a total of 40 cigarettes/e-cigarettes compared resulting in the below detected components and their percentage.

Just look at the data.  It is clear as day, and you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see which is the better, safer, alternative.

Looks pretty much like Proof Positive to me… E-Cigarettes are clearly safer than tobacco cigarettes.

With this data alone, I can see that I am doing a lot of good for my body vaping, instead of smoking regular cigarettes.

Over the period of time that I have been using e-cigs, my physical health is seeming to improve over time.  I know this in part is also due to me lowering my nicotine content in my e liquid over time.  As I mentioned before, since I have problems with my heart and circulation, I can feel the effects of a cigarette, and can feel the difference when I vape stronger nicotine levels.  I am not sure if others can feel this same things, but I sure can, and firmly feel I am on the right path.
