New clinical study shows exclusive e-cigarette use reduces exposure to harmful chemicals similar to complete smoking cessation 

[excerpt]London, 13 July 2016 –

New peer-reviewed research published today shows that smokers who completely substitute conventional cigarettes with commercial e-cigarettes experience dramatic reductions in exposure to harmful chemicals that are thought to contribute to tobacco-related diseases, not that dissimilar to complete smoking cessation. The clinical findings, reported in the Journal of Toxicology Mechanisms and Methods, measured the changes in fifteen biomarkers of exposure to harmful and potentially harmful constituents (HPHCs) – reported by FDA to be significant contributors to smoking-associated disease risks, including carbon monoxide, aldehydes, and tobacco-specific nitrosamines – in the urine, blood and exhaled breath of 105 adult smokers during a five-day controlled trial.
