According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the diagnosis of cancer in the United States has been on a steady decline over the past 30 years. Perhaps even more important, the American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that the rate of cancer-related mortality has also declined drastically around 25 percent since 1991.
Meanwhile, in the past five years, more and more adult smokers successfully quit smoking by switching to vaping products as a tool for reducing the damage of snuff that is safe and effective. CDC also states that the rate of adult smokers in the United States is now in “lowest point” during the same period.
This raises the question: vaping is not SAVES LIVES?
Most current ACS data collected and analyzed in a broad range of demographic and socioeconomic conditions seemed to suggest a possible link between the rise in popularity of vaping and historical decline in adult and adolescent smokers. In addition to increasing levels of smokers switched to Vapes, other factors, including fewer Americans have no health insurance, for better public education about the dangers of smoking, and improve the detection of cancer diagnoses in medical community.
The annual public health initiatives such as the ACS campaign Great American Smokeout and European Stoptober that positively impact the possibility of a steady decline in adult smoking rates and cancer as well. Since the first Great American Smokeout that occurred over 40 years ago (when 35% of all United States are smokers every day) the number of adult smokers was reduced to an impressive 13.7% in 2018.
ACS also estimates that this new lows in the rate of adult smokers in the past five years has saved approximately 350,000 people between 2014 and 2015 alone. Incidentally, this year as well as vaping product sales are at their peak.
Recent studies indicate more effective vaping some to stop smoking patches or gum nicotine.
Of course, it is still too early to say whether there is a direct and scientific relations, but several studies ongoing research continues to show vaping can be an important factor for the dramatic drop in the diagnosis of adult cancer last year. A recent study conducted by scientists at the University of California (UC) and approved by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health under state and community of the snuff (SCTC) Initiative control.
Research at the University of California use entitled E-cigarette and related changes in the population to stop smoking: evidence from a survey of the current population of the United States (BMJ) examined whether increased use of the products of steam nicotine-based associated with the recent increase to quit smoking permanently. The co-authors concluded that when using the e-cig in the US is at its highest point, more and more adults who quit smoking successfully the same time.
A second study from the University of Louisville to analyze the success rate of various methods to stop smoking, including the following.
old school method of cold turkey
prescription drugs such as Wellbutrin and Chantix
cessation products major pharmaceutical smoking, such as nicotine patches infusion, chewing gum and lozenges
And several tanks open steam and disposable products.
University of Louisville study suggests that electronic cigarettes and vaping devices have the highest success rate for adult help to quit smoking permanently. In fact, the evidence is now regarded as very positive that the UK Public Health England has openly supported vaping as an aid to quit smoking. The Food and Drug Administration US has not been followed.
