    The study involved 42 adults with an average age of 28. Twenty-three had used e-cigarettes — vaped — daily for at least a year and 19 had never vaped.

    All participants had no known health problems, were taking no prescription medications and did not smoke tobacco cigarettes. Electrocardiograms and blood tests were used to evaluate their heart activity. E-cigarette users were found to exhibit physiological effects not present in the nonusers, such as abnormalities in cardiovascular function that included higher oxidative stress levels and levels of adrenaline in the heart, an effect known as increased cardiac sympathetic activity. These factors are known to increase the risk of cardiovascular problems.

    I'd be interested in reading that story, but I just can't give traffic to the Washington Compost. Off to Google!

    OK. Good information to know.

    So this backs up my sentiment that if you haven't smoked in the past, you shouldn't start vaping.

    Now we need a companion study coming at the from the "proper" perspective. We know it's "worse" than no consumption at all... but is it "better" than smoking (from Heart Disease standpoint)?

    Vaping is all about, to me anyway, "harm reduction". I mean... seriously... I'm still putting a foreign substance into my body by inhaling atomized liquids, so you gotta expect some negative impact.

    vaping is definitely better then smoking

    As you know i am on a boat in asian waters,so when i run out of juice,restocking is extremely difficult ,right before xmas i ran out ,i went without for 4 days,but the urge to pick up a stinky was there and could not be resisted

    it tasted exactly like they did when i first started smoking way back in the day,,after i finished that i got and tried to walk, omg my head was spinning and i felt ungodly sick instantly !! think my body went into shock from all those strange chemicals being pumped into them

    bty,i did finally get restocked and dropped the stinkies instantaneously !!!!!!!

    I agree. However, They just want more ammo so that they can Demonize it further and collect the profits from their severe taxation.
